What Is Synotic Used for in Dogs?

Synotic Solution is a topical corticosteroid containing fluocinolone acetonide and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). It helps relieve pain, itching, and inflammation caused by ear infections in dogs. Synotic solution is used for the treatment of chronic ear infections and allergies, as well as acute otitis externa (inflammation of the external ear canal). The medication is solely meant for topical application. Also, make sure you consult an experienced and licensed veterinarian before administering Synotic Solution to your dog.

How Do I Give My Dog a Synotic?

Synotic Otic solution is available in the form of 8 ml dropper vials. That makes it easy to apply the medication to your dog's ear canal. You should keep in mind that the medication is only meant for topical application to your dog's ears. Never administer Synotic to your dog in any other form. When it comes to the recommended dosage, most dogs need 4 to 6 drops of Synotic otic solution twice daily, for up to 14 days. If your dog has recurrent acute and chronic otitis, they might need the medication for a longer period. Talk to your vet to determine the optimal dosage and duration of treatment.

What Does DMSO Do?

DMSO or dimethyl sulfoxide is a drug used to treat joint pain and inflammation in dogs and horses. It comes in handy for dogs with canine osteoarthritis. It's just as useful for relieving pain and inflammation associated with chronic allergies and infections in dogs. It works by blocking nerve conduction fibers that cause pain. It's an FDA-approved and veterinarian medication that should only be used for topical application. Make sure you consult your vet before giving DMSO to your dog.

Is Fluocinolone Acetonide Oil Safe for Dogs?

Yes. Fluocinolone acetonide oil is a steroid that's been approved for use on dogs in combination with dimethyl sulfoxide. Fluocinolone acetonide helps reduce pain, itching, and inflammation caused by severe ear allergies and infections in dogs. It works by blocking the action of chemicals that cause inflammation. It's worth remembering that fluocinolone acetonide shouldn't be administered in any form other than topical application. Also, it isn't suitable for pregnant dogs. You should always consult your vet before administering fluocinolone acetonide oil to your dog.

Is Fluocinolone a Corticosteroid?

Yes. Fluocinolone acetonide is a corticosteroid that's used to relieve skin inflammation, itching, and pain in dogs. It's one of the main ingredients in Synotic Solution - a topical medication used for the treatment of chronic ear infections and allergies in dogs. Fluocinolone works by inhibiting the action of chemicals that cause inflammation. The topical medication is particularly useful for dogs suffering from acute and chronic otitis externa.

What Are the Side Effects of Fluocinolone Acetonide?

The most common side effect of fluocinolone acetonide in dogs is a mild stinging sensation in the affected area. However, most side effects of fluocinolone subside as healing progresses. If the adverse effects persist, or the inflammation fails to heal, make sure you consult your vet to explore the possibility of antimicrobial therapy.

Does DMSO Help With Inflammation?

Yes. DMSO is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. It's used as a primary ingredient in Synotic Solution and helps treat chronic ear infections in dogs. It works by blocking the pain-inducing nerve conduction fibers. Apart from reducing inflammation, DMSO also helps relieve pain. It should only be used as a topical medication. Also, you'll need a licensed veterinarian's prescription before getting DMSO for your dog.

Why does my dog keep scratching his ear and yelping?

If your dog is scratching his ear and yelping, it could be an indication of an underlying issue or discomfort. Dogs are prone to ear infections, which can cause itching, discomfort, and pain. Ear infections may be caused by bacteria, yeast, or other factors. If your dog's ear is red, swollen, has a discharge, or has a foul odor, it's possible that an infection is the cause. Ear mites are tiny parasites that can infest a dog's ears, causing intense itching and irritation. Dogs with ear mites may scratch their ears vigorously and yelp in response to the discomfort. Your dog may have a foreign object, such as a grass seed or a small piece of debris, lodged in his ear, causing irritation and prompting him to scratch. This can lead to yelping if the object is causing pain or discomfort. Dogs can develop allergies to certain foods, environmental factors (such as pollen or dust mites), or even certain materials they come into contact with. Allergies can manifest as itchy skin, including the ears, leading to scratching and potential yelping. If your dog has had an accident or injury that affects the ear, he may scratch at it and yelp due to pain or discomfort. You should have your dog examined by a veterinarian if you notice these symptoms. The vet can perform a thorough examination, determine the underlying cause, and recommend appropriate treatment, which may include medication, ear cleaning, or other interventions.

How do you treat a dog's ear infection pain?

Here are the names of some medications commonly used to address ear infection pain in dogs. Synotic Solution contains fluocinolone acetonide (a corticosteroid) and DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide). It is primarily used for its anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce itching, redness, and pain in the ear. Otomax is a commonly prescribed ointment that contains gentamicin, betamethasone, and clotrimazole. It is used to treat ear infections caused by bacteria and yeast, providing relief from pain, itching, and inflammation. Tresaderm is a topical medication that combines an antibiotic (gentamicin), an antifungal (thiabendazole), and a corticosteroid (dexamethasone). It is used to treat various ear infections, including those caused by bacteria, yeast, and certain mites. Mometamax is an ointment that contains gentamicin, mometasone, and clotrimazole. It is used to treat ear infections caused by bacteria and yeast, providing relief from pain, inflammation, and itching. Surolan is an ear drop solution that contains polymyxin B, miconazole, and prednisolone. It is used to treat ear infections caused by bacteria and yeast, offering relief from pain, inflammation, and itching. These medications should only be used under the guidance and prescription of a veterinarian. The specific medication prescribed will depend on the type and severity of the ear infection, as well as the individual needs of your dog.

What home remedy can I use to clean my dog's ears?

While it's important to consult with a veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment, there are some home remedies that you can try to help ease your dog's discomfort. Applying a warm compress to your dog's ear can help soothe discomfort and reduce inflammation. Use a clean towel soaked in warm (not hot) water and gently place it against the affected ear for a few minutes. Make sure the compress is warm and not too hot to avoid burning your dog's skin. A homemade ear flush solution made from equal parts of white vinegar and water, or hydrogen peroxide and water, can help maintain ear hygiene and prevent certain ear infections. However, it's important to note that these solutions should only be used in dogs without active ear infections, and you should never use them if your dog has a perforated eardrum or open wounds in the ear. Before using any ear flush, consult with a veterinarian to ensure it's appropriate for your dog's specific situation. Some natural anti-inflammatory agents, such as coconut oil or aloe vera gel, may offer relief to your dog's irritated ears. Coconut oil has soothing properties and can help moisturize the skin. Aloe vera gel, when used in its pure form without additives, can have cooling and anti-inflammatory effects. However, it's important to ensure that your dog is not allergic to these substances, and it's advisable to consult with a veterinarian before applying them to your dog's ears.

Is coconut oil good for dog ear infections?

Coconut oil has gained popularity for its potential health benefits, including its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. While it is not a substitute for veterinary care, there are some aspects of coconut oil that might be helpful when dealing with dog ear infections. Coconut oil can act as a natural moisturizer, which may help soothe dry and irritated skin. In the case of ear infections, it can help alleviate discomfort associated with dryness or flakiness of the skin in and around the ear. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a fatty acid with known antimicrobial properties. It may have some effectiveness against certain types of bacteria, yeast, and fungi that could be contributing to an ear infection. However, the antimicrobial effects of coconut oil are generally considered mild and may not be sufficient to treat more severe or persistent infections. Coconut oil contains compounds that possess anti-inflammatory properties. These properties can help reduce redness, swelling, and inflammation in the ear, potentially providing some relief from the discomfort associated with an ear infection.

Can I cure my dog's ear infection at home?

While there are some home remedies and preventive measures you can try, it's not recommended to attempt to cure a dog's ear infection at home without professional veterinary guidance. Ear infections in dogs can have various underlying causes, including bacteria, yeast, allergies, or other factors. The appropriate treatment will depend on the specific cause and severity of the infection. A veterinarian will perform a thorough examination to diagnose the underlying cause of the ear infection accurately. Different types of infections require different treatments, and a proper diagnosis is essential for effective resolution. A veterinarian can prescribe appropriate medications, such as antibiotics or antifungal drugs, to target the specific cause of the infection. These medications are typically prescribed based on the type and severity of the infection, and they require professional expertise to administer them correctly. If left untreated or improperly treated, ear infections can lead to complications, such as chronic inflammation, eardrum rupture, or secondary infections. Veterinary intervention helps minimize the risk of complications and ensures the infection is properly addressed. Ear infections can sometimes be symptoms of underlying health conditions, such as allergies or hormonal imbalances. A veterinarian can identify and address these issues to prevent recurrence or persistent ear problems.

Synotic Solution are used in managing pruritus and pain or inflammation associated with chronic allergies, infections, or otitis in dogs. Inflammation of the external ear canal (otitis externa) could be agonizing to pets and secondary infections caused by yeast or bacteria might make it even more complicated.ย 

Each mL of the solution contains 0.01% fluocinolone acetonide (6ฮฑ,9ฮฑ-difluoro-11 รŸ,16ฮฑ,17,21-tetrahydroxypregna-1,4-diene-3,20-dione, cyclic 16,17-acetal with acetone) and 60% dimethyl sulfoxide in propylene glycol and citric acid

Side effects while using Synotic Solution can include a mild stinging sensation that may occur in some animals but will disappear as healing progresses.

It is an exclusive topical application for the canine ear canals; never administer through any other route. Fluocinolone acetonide and Dimethyl Sulfoxide are not safe in pregnant animals as they might lead to miscarriage, fetal death, retained placenta, and metritis. If lacerations fail to heal, consult a licensed veterinarian for possible antimicrobial therapy and follow-up. Ensure that the medication does not enter the dogโ€™s eyes; pet owners must wear protective gloves while applying the medication. Never exceed the prescribed dose as it might have serious adverse effects. Do not use Fluocinolone acetonide and Dimethyl Sulfoxide without the prescription of a licensed veterinarian, and thoroughly cleanse the petโ€™s ears before administering the medication.ย 

Synotic Otic solution for veterinary applications is available in 8ml dropper vials. The normal dose for dogs is 4-6 drops, twice a day for a maximum duration of 14 days. Dogs with recurrent otitis might require prolonged otic therapy and sudden withdrawal of the medicine might make the condition worse. As this medicine is hygroscopic, close the cap of the dropper tightly after application.ย  Use as directed by your veterinarian.

Store in a cool, dry place.

useful consumer size not available

Originally, this fine product was available in 8 mL and 60 mL sizes. The 8 mL size has been discontinued, according to the PetCareRX pharmacy. I'd describe 60 mL of Synotic as way more than an individual pet owner would use in a lifetime, so now you need to get this via a vet who is willing to invest in the big size and sell you a smaller amount.
