Indications for Animax Ointment
Animax Ointment, a generic equivalent to Panalog, is a medication applied in treating dermatological disorders in animals. The antimicrobial and corticosteroid combination in the medicine makes it an effective antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory ointment prescribed for cats and dogs. The ointment also finds use in eczema related dermatitis, contact dermatitis and also supplements the management of parasite-borne dermatitis in animals. The therapeutic effects that the medication provides is due to the four active ingredients; Nystatin, Neomycin Sulfate, Thiostrepton and Triamcinolone Acetone. Nystatin is an antifungal antibiotic, which forms an active remedy against infections affecting the skin. Neomycin possesses antimicrobial functions and Thiostrepton is highly active against gram-positive organisms. Triamcinolone Acetone, a corticosteroid, helps in relieving the symptoms quickly and facilitates healing. The combined action of all four components works against the bacterial infections in animals.
