Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caused deafness in my Yorkie I was prescribed this by my vet and had concerns b/c my mom's dog became deaf after using it and never recovered. The vet told need me this was rare and if so, usually reversible. I used it and my sweet yorkie is now deaf. I would not risk it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! My Cavalier King Charles always has ear problems - wax build up, mites, and just stinky ears. He would just scratch them until broken skin. Bought this product for him and only used twice a day for almost a week now and he's no longer scratching. His ear still smells a little but cleaning it consistency usually helps. It's a thick gel/liquid so it doesn't get all over the place when he shake his head.

Questions

My dog gets ear flare ups often... this is the only medicine that helps. Is it safe to use all the time. For example: a 7 day dose once every two months. Is that safe?

Asked by: Jackie
Therapy should continue for 7 consecutive days. Please consult with your veterinarian to ensure a bi-monthly pattern is safe treatment/preventative plan for your furry baby.

How long does brown stuff continue to come out while using Mometamax for ear yeast infection, and do you clean ear every time before using?

Asked by: SusieQz
If there is black stuff in the ears you should clean that out before you put the motomax in because if you don't then the motomax won't get to the infection as good and it might not clear up or take longer
