Customer Reviews
Mometamax Otic Suspension is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 82.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankfully something that worked! I have a 2yr old Sharpie/black lab mix. For the past 6mo. YES, 6mo! My dog has had an ongoing ear infection. He had been on 3 different oral antibiotics. 2 of which they tried treatment twice. He had to be placed on steroids a few times because the swelling was so bad. On two separate occasions they had to give him pain medication just so I could clean the ear. A friend told me about mometamax and swore by it. At this point I was willing to try anything. I asked my vet and they finally agreed to try it. The first 4 days on treatment I didn't see any changes but almost over night his ear cleared up. Little to no drainage, ear wasn't red and inflamed, I could clean it without him crying. By the end of treatment his ear cleared up. The only difficult part of the medication was the applicators tip. Because his ear was so inflamed it hurt him to have the tip go into the ear. Making it impossible to count 8 drops. Hopefully one day they can provide prefilled tubes for easy administration. Otherwise, I definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product we've tried yet! My poor pitbull Apollo gets ear infections quite frequently. We've tried all kinds of ear drops and cleansers and nothing seemed to be working. When I started working at a Veterinary Hospital, I decided to bring my pup to work with me one day to have a doctor check out his ear. I told them about all the different things we had tried and they prescribed Mometamax. I asked them to compare Mometamax to what we had used previously and they said that the Mometamax has a certain steroid in it (which is why you need an Rx for it). It was a little pricey but SO worth it because it cleared my baby's ears up in about a week! Besides the fact that it works, my favorite part about the product is the bottle it comes in. All of the cleansers we tried would have these small, wide nozzles that would make a mess and we were never sure if the drops were applied properly. The tip of this bottle is super thin and long and slides right into the ear canal. Since its so small, your dog won't be as irritated by it and hopefully won't squirm around as much! I highly recommend this product!

Q&A

My vet only prescribed 1 drop every 24 hours for 10 days. Is this normal the bottle says 8 drops he is 63lbs. Also can you use prednisone and mometamax at the same time?

Asked by: RowdyRoo
The recommended dosage per the manufacturer of the medication for dogs over 30lbs is Place 8 drops into the ear canal once daily for 7 consecutive days. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian, even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Also it is best to advise your vet if the Prednisone was not prescribed by said veterinarian if your pet is taking any other medications before giving your furry friend multiple medications at the same time.
