Baytril Otic. Drop is an FDA-approved prescription medication used to treat fungal and bacterial ear infections in dogs and cats. These easy-to-use, water-based drops can also help reduce inflammation and discomfort in the ears while your pet heals.
Baytril Otic. Drop contains the antimicrobials Enrofloxacin and silver sulfadiazine that kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and protozoans. Enrofloxacin combats bacteria while silver sulfadiazine fights fungal infections. It comes in a convenient dropper bottle with easy instructions.
It is available in a water-based emulsion that is easy to apply. In normal cases 5-10 drops would be ideal for dogs weighing 35 lbs. or less; bigger dogs should be administered 10-15 drops at a time. Gently massage the ear so that the medicine spreads evenly throughout the external ear canal. Apply twice daily for a fortnight.
Side effects are rare; still symptoms like ear irritation, acute inflammation of the ear canal and pinna are reported. In some cases the pet might experience lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, or hearing loss during the course of treatment, which might require immediate medical aid.
