What is Zymox Otic with Hydrocortisone?

Zymox Otic treats the ear externally for acute and chronic inflammation caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. Some factors that may contribute to possible ear infections include: excessive hair, a suppressed immune system, and excessive skin folds in the ear. The addition of hydrocortisone provides added relief from inflammation as well as relief from itching.

For: Cats and Dogs

 
Benefits:
Treats both acute and chronic ear infections
With hydrocortisone to reduce itching
No reported side effects

How it works:
Zymox Otic has what the manufacturer calls a Three-Point Enzyme System. Each enzyme - lactoperoxidase, lysozyme, and lactoferrin - has its own unique properties that, when combined, becomes a powerful antimicrobial formula.

The antibacterial property of the lactoperoxidase is based upon inhibiting vital bacterial metabolic enzymes. Lysozyme kills bacteria by disrupting the formation of a glycosidic bond between the two components of peptidoglycan, a constituent of the bacterial cell wall. Lastly, lactoferrin - an iron-binding protein - is bacteriostatic against a wide range of microorganisms, which means it inhibits the growth of the bacteria.

The anti-inflammatory action of hydrocortisone reduces itching and inflammation.

Cautions:
Do not use this product when using any other topical ear medications or cleaners, since the enzyme activity of Zymox Otic with Hydrocortisone may not work.

Zymox Otic I have an 18 year old Collie who came down with a severe ear infection. Her ear had a green slimy discharge and it got so bad, it even hurt her to chew food. She wouldn't let us get near it and it smelled horrible. I was really afraid this infection would kill her if it continued to spread. We can't afford a vet and were afraid they would want us to put her down. I had prescription ear infection medicine from the vet from a previous infection but it wasn't working this time. I bought Zymox Otic as my last resort and to our surprise, it started improving immediately. There is no odor, no discharge and she is in minimal discomfort. I continue to use it daily and continue to see improvements! 06/20/2011
Pain free at last!! I took my senior beagle boy to the vet, less than two months ago for chronic ear pain, brown exudate and smell. Nothing was working. Cleansers, drying powder or Otomax. I called the vet, left a msg with a tech and was told to bring my old boy back in for yet another $45 visit if I wanted a stronger Rx. The vet knew the ear condition was the same, but the practice wanted more money, just to rediagnose the same painful problem and dispense an obscenely marked up price, for another Rx. Furious and frustrated, I found Zymox and within 4 days of it's use as directed, you can see and smell the difference. My little beagle actually stands still, lets me massage the ears and you can tell, the pain is dissipating, just from the relaxed look on his sweet face. Yeah, Pet Meds! Thx so much!!! 06/20/2011
it's a miracle! I have spent so much money in the past for my dog ear infection. He loves swimming, but this also makes his condition worst. His vet gave him different types of ear cleaning products and none of them worked well. I went online, did some research and purchased this product through petmed. It's a miracle! my dog is very happy and I'm as well. I bought 3 bottles just in case they don't make it again. 06/16/2011
I Love This Product I have a basset hound and she got a couple yeast infections in her ears, and it cost so much to take her to the vet and have it treated. The vet recommended this product for one of her yeast infections and she stopped itching the first day and the redness went away in 3 days. I now use this product as a preventative and she hasn't had an ear yeast infection since. We have no problems with using it, she seems to enjoy it, I think she knows it helps. 06/13/2011
excellent results 06/12/2011

I've been using this for over a week on my cat. Her ear still smells, the infection doesn't seem to have cleared up at all.

I pour a few drops directly into the ear, try to hold her still so it sets for a bit, and massage it into the ear before wiping up the excess.

Am I doing something wrong? Should I be flushing hear ears out or cleaning them with anything?

So far all it's accomplished is making her trust me less.

Answer: 
I would try putting a good amount on a cotton ball and wiping that down to the ear canal. You will not only be putting the medicine in the ear, but cleaning around the inside of the ear. This is how I had to do it for my dog.....

Answer: 
It's like giving a baby medicine. They won't like it, but has to be done. Muzzle her, hold her down and get it in there. Get help if needed. If her ears hurt, she may come to understand what you are putting in there helps, and won't fight it as much, or at all. My Spencer used to fight it, but is ok now.

Answer: 
The calcification and abnormalities are likely permanent, although expensive laser surgery would probably help. However, the Zymox won't hurt, and probably will help prevent further damage to the ear canal. I would use it every day for a month or two, until the smell goes away. Then I would use it once or twice a week forever. It certainly won't cost what you've been spending on the vet. I'd stop the medicine the vet gives in the ear. The steroid shot won't hurt to get in the meanwhile, make sure you put the Zymox (with hydrocortisone) in and massage below the ear to give it time to run down the ear canal before you allow the dog to shake her head. If this helps her, you will probably need to continue it every few days for her life. I fostered a dog once with ears something like you describe. The dr put him on Zymox. Surgery wasn't an option for him. But the Zymox helped. Had to use ongoing, but a 4 oz bottle lasts a while on smaller dogs. I'd give it a try.
