What is Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone?

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. 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. Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone is a once-a-day treatment that requires no pre-cleaning and is non-invasive for easy use. It may be used to treat both acute and chronic ear infections and is safe for extended use on persistent cases of otitis externa.

NOTE: Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution Hydrocortisone Free is also available for dogs and cats who cannot tolerate hydrocortisone.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Effectively treats acute and chronic outer ear infections caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections
  • Naturally works with your pet's body to react with present pus and debris to kill microbes
  • Contains hydrocortisone to reduce itching
  • No reported side effects
  • Non-invasive, once-a-day application

How does Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone work?

Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone has what the manufacturer calls the Zymox LP3 Enzyme System. Each enzyme has its own unique properties that, when combined, becomes a powerful antimicrobial formula. Glucose Oxidase is an enzyme that works with Lactoperoxidase to form antimicrobial ions. Lactoferrin is an iron-binding protein that inhibits microorganism growth by depriving them of iron. Lactoperoxidase is a milk derived enzyme that is combined in a system along with glucose oxidase to form the hypothiocyanate or hypoiodite ion to oxidize the metabolic pathways of microorganisms. Lysozyme is an enzyme that effectively kills harmful bacteria by disrupting the formation of the cell wall. The anti-inflammatory action of hydrocortisone reduces itching and inflammation. Zymox Otic Enzymatic Solution with Hydrocortisone may not work if used with other topical ear medications or cleansers.

Cautions:

DO NOT clean your pet's ears before or during use. Doing so will disrupt the enzyme system. Do not use this product when using any other topical ear medications or cleaners. This product is for pet use only. Do not use on punctured ear drums. Do not use on pregnant or lactating females. Do not allow water in or near your pet's ears during use. Reapply if water gets in the ears. If the condition persists or worsens, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Best Product! Our cocker had an impossible ear infection, we tried antibiotics, ear medications, antifungals, washes you name it we tried it! We spent thousands over the years and were considering surgery we were so desperate! Zymox completely cleared up the infection after 3 only applications! We couldn't believe how quickly it worked! Our cocker has a new life and now we can take him in the car again. What an effective product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats wearing underwear on your head! Our rescued 1 year old standard poodle Atticus came with chronic ear infections. Would shake his head and flap his thick heavy ears so hard that they would bleed and splatter blood everywhere. Multiple trips to the vet would only clear it up temporarily. Resorted to placing boys size underwear on his head to keep him from flapping his ears. Needless to say he was miserable. A friend recommended Zymox and it was our wonder cure which we continue to use proactively. Now 10 year old Atticus has had happy healthy ears and an underwear free head ever since!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am trying for first time and it seems to be helping. My old lab was uncomfortable and new little lab shaking head. So nice to just add one application especially when Barley our new rescue very nervous when fussing with him. I don’t have to pre flush just treat once a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good My Golden and my lab have chronic ear infections. We’ve been using the product for a couple days and it seems like the scratching and shaking their heads has subsided for the most part. So far I am happy with the product and glad it saved me a trip to the vet.

Can this be used to calm the itching of ear mites until I get the other medication? I'm short on extra money.

Asked by: roxiemom02
Thank you for your question. The Zymox treats the ear externally for acute and chronic inflammation caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. It does not treat ear mites, we do have Eradimite which kills ear mites and ear ticks https://www.1800petmeds.com/Eradimite+Ear+Mite+Treatment-prod3311.html?Ntt=earadmte.

Hi, I have a cocker spaniel who has seizures. And recently he got a infection on his left ear and we don't have money to take him to the vet, I was wandering if this will work or does it need something else to fix the infection?

Asked by: Samurai
I have a cocker too and this stuff is a miracle cure. When I start to see yellow to white discharge with that nasty smell I use this stuff for a few days in a row and it's gone. Also, when the inside ear flap gets crusty and scaly, I will apply zymox to a cloth and run it into flap for a few days and the difference is amazing. I have recommended this to many people and can't say enough how well and fast it works. Lifetime user here for sure!!!
