Rated 5 out of 5 by from i call it Magic! I’ve been using Otomax in my pit bulls ears about 2 weeks now. When the weather gets cold she gets the crusty stuff in her ears. And the smell...? Yuck. After just a couple of treatments with Otomax the crust and the smell goes away. She’s happy with the relief of her ears and I’m happy because I see her with healthy ears and looking happy again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this product I have a beagle and the past few years he has issues with inflammation and infections and scratches his poor ears until they he bleeds... the vet gave us this to use and it works fast and does what it is suppose to. we recently had to use it again and in a few days he will be as good as new. I really recommend this product but just use this as directed..

Questions

Is there a brand like this one you can use without a prescription

Asked by: Tooc578
We do not offer an equivalent brand to Otomax that is over the counter. However, we do offer Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone which is over the counter and has awesome reviews. Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone is an enzymatic treatment for otitis externa (outer ear infection) in cats and dogs. It treats the ear externally for acute and chronic inflammation caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. This effective enzymatic system supports the natural defense mechanism of your pet's body to kill harmful bacteria, fungi, and yeast. You may click on the link below to view this product.

It shows that it is only for dogs but if your veterinarian does prescribe it for your cat, he/she will go over if it will be effective for your furry baby.

I put this stuff in and my dog shakes her head and it comes out. How is that supposed to work. The ointment was better.

Asked by: Beatrice
Prior to Otomax use the external ear should be cleaned and dried, and excessive hair should be clipped from the treatment area. Remove foreign material, debris, crusted exudates, etc., with suitable nonirritating solutions. Shake well before use and instill as directed by your veterinarian.

What is the most important thing I should know about Otomax?

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Otomax on my pet?

Do not use Otomax if your pet has a viral or fungal infection. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Otomax be applied?

What are the potential side effects of Otomax?

Hearing loss (usually temporary) may occur. Discontinue this medication and consult with your veterinarian if hearing loss, head tilting or dizziness are noticed. In humans, clotrimazole has been observed to occasionally cause redness of the skin, stinging, blistering, peeling, fluid retention, itching, hives and general irritation of the skin. Discontinue the medication and talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss applying a dose of Otomax?

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 give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Otomax?

An overdose of this medication is unlikely. If an overdose is suspected, seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.
