What is the most important information I should know about Mupirocin Ointment:

Mupirocin Ointment is FDA approved for treating topical infections in dogs caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian. Your pet's symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Avoid getting this medication in the pet's eyes, nose, or mouth. Mupirocin Ointment is available by prescription as 2% strength in a 22 gm tube. The usual dose of Mupirocin Ointment is to apply on the dog 2 times a day.

What is Mupirocin Ointment:

Mupirocin Ointment is an antibiotic medication used on dogs which treats bacterial infections such as pyoderma and abscesses. Mupirocin Ointment may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Mupirocin Ointment on my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has had an allergic reaction to Mupirocin Ointment in the past. The safe use in pregnant or breeding animals has not been determined.

How should this medication be used:

Use Mupirocin Ointment exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication. Clean and dry the affected area first. Mupirocin Ointment is applied to the affected area 2 times a day. Apply a sufficient amount to completely cover the affected area. Treatment should not exceed 30 days. Avoid getting the medication in the pet's eyes, nose, or mouth. Store Mupirocin Ointment at room temperature. Keep out of the reach of children

What happens if I miss a dose:

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not use a double dose unless directed to by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

An overdose of Mupirocin Ointment is unlikely to occur. If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while applying Mupirocin Ointment:
