What is Posatex Otic Suspension Used For?

Posatex Otic Suspension is a medication for your pet dog that gets used as an antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial drug. It is helpful in the treatment of otitis externa related to strains influenced by bacteria and yeast. Otitis externa is that state in which the external ear canal gets infected with inflammation. The ear canal is a tube that joins the outer ear to the eardrum. Otitis externa is better known as a swimmer's ear. It is because continuous water exposure makes the ear canal unprotected from inflammation. Bacterial infection is the common cause of Otitis Externa. But the principal factor in 10 percent of the cases is due to fungal overgrowth.

How Do I Apply Posatex to My Dog?

Put 4 drops of Posatex Otic Suspension in the ear canal of your dog once every day. If your pet weighs 30lbs or more, then you need to put in 8 drops once a day in your dog's ear canal. The remedy needs to be followed continuously for a week.

Is Posatex Otic Suspension an Antibiotic?

Yes, Posatex Otic Suspension is an Antibiotic. Posatex helps in reducing the pain and easing out inflammation that is the result of otitis externa. There are many factors responsible for Otitis externa like allergies, foreign objects, and parasites. All these factors straight away give birth to inflammation. But others like mid-ear infections, yeast, and a particular kind of bacteria prolong the condition. It is an eardrop, a medication with a fusion of three powerful drugs: the broad-range spectrum antibiotic orbifloxacin; anti-fungal known as posaconazole; and an anti-inflammatory mometasone furoate monohydrate. Posatex is powerful and capable of clearing the infection from the ear by using it only once a day for a week.

How Do You Administer Posatex Otic Suspension?

Before administering Posatex Otic Suspension, shake it well and apply the medication to your dog's ear canal. Apply it for a week or as per the advice of your vet. Make sure to avoid contact with Posatex to the mouth, nose, and eyes of your dog. If timely treatment gets missed to your dog the infection continues to persist or keep on occurring. Possibility of cartilage or bone damage increases if otitis externa gets unnoticed. The non-treatment of the ear infection might spread to the first layer of your dog's skull, cranial nerves, or brain.

What Does a Dog Ear Infection Look Like?

Generally, when your dog has an ear infection, the ear becomes inflamed and red, and you get an offensive odor. You may notice a discharge that is often a yellow or black color. In chronic instances, the ear tends to swell or looks crusty, and the canal of your dog's ear narrows down because of chronic inflammation. The common symptoms of infection in your dogโ€™s ear are rubbing or scratching the ear. The discharge color from the ear is usually brown, yellow, or bloody. There will always be redness in the ear of your dog. If you check the internet you get to know some home solutions to get rid of the ear infection from your dogs. It is hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. It is not advisable to follow the home remedies as it develops irritation inside your dogโ€™s ear. You may end up aggravating the infection in your dog. No doubt the acid present in vinegar executes the yeast, but you need to know vinegar is more of water.

Does Posatex Require Prescription?

Yes, Posatex needs a prescription as it is a medication that is a combination of three powerful drugs. It is always better to consult with your vet before administering Posatex. The vet will be able to guide you about the dosage required after examining your dog's condition. If Posatex is taken based on prescription, otitis externa gets cured under 7-10 days. The pain reduces quickly once the treatment starts. External Otitis is not transmissible. Therefore, you can take your dog if he is feeling better for a regular outing. Never experiment yourself on your pet dog. It saves your dog from different side effects that can occur if you give the medication without the prescription from your vet.

Is Zymox the Same as Posatex?

Zymox and Posatex are different. Posatex is an antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial drug and helps get rid of Otitis Externa in dogs only. Zymox is for both cats and dogs and helps recover from a chronic and acute infection in the ear due to yeast, fungal or bacterial infection. Zymox has hydrocortisone which brings down itching issues. Both Posatax and Zymox need to get administered once a day.
