Watching your pet scratch at an itchy, painful ear is no fun. Help your pet feel better with Zymox OTIC. It treats the ear externally for acute and chronic inflammation caused by bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. There are a lot of different causes of these infections including excess hair, a suppressed immune system, and excessive ear skin folds. The hydrocortisone in the OTIC provides immediate relief from inflammation and itching so your pet can feel better faster.

How to Apply Zymox Otic?

The exact quantity of Zymox Otic HC 1.0 depends on the extent and kind of infection your pet has. To use, first tilt your dog's head to one side. Then, apply HC 1.0 enzyme solution to the outside of the ear, and fill the ear canal. Massage it deep into your dog's ear canal from the house by massaging gently behind your dog's ear. Finally, allow your dog to shake their head and wipe away any excess liquid.

How Does Zymox Otic Work?

Otic HC 1.0 enzymatic solution contains a unique blend of three different natural enzymes - lysozyme, lactoferrin, and lactoperoxidase. Together, these provide you with powerful and long-lasting antimicrobial action that targets a host of chronic and short-term ear infections like otitis media.

Does Zymox Otic Kill Ear Mites?

Zymox Otic is used to treat a variety of bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections. It does not kill ear mites but may be able to help with the inflammation caused by them. Since this is a medicine, please consult a doctor before administering this to your pet.

What Is Zymox Otic?

Zymox Otic is a common medicine used to treat medical conditions like chronic otitis externa due to bacterial, fungal, yeast infections, acute and chronic otitis media, and infections of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms. The enzyme system destroys antibiotic-resistant microorganisms, bacteria, fungus, and yeast colonies in your pet's ear. The natural bioactive components are safe for extended preventative use, though you need to follow your doctor's instructions regarding this.

What Is Zymox Otic Used For?

Zymox Otic is used for the treatment of acute otitis. You position the bottle in your pet's ear and squeeze the bottle, liberally fill the ear, and gently massage working medication into the infected area. Remember to shake well before use to ensure the proper proportions of medicine are applied to your pet's ear. Also, remember to wipe to remove excess liquid from the ear. Keeping the area wet would encourage microbial growth. Clean once a day or as many times as your doctor had advised.

Does Zymox Work for Ear Infections?

Yes, Zymox works on a variety of bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections.

Should I Get Zymox With or Without Hydrocortisone?

Hydrocortisone is a steroid. It is used to treat a range of different medical conditions, and vets can even advise extended use on persistent infections. However, since it is a steroid, you should only use this under medical supervision. You should not use these unless your doctor has asked you to. If you are only looking to prevent ear infections or want to give temporary relief to your pet's itchy ears, you can try the version without hydrocortisone till you see the vet.

How Often Can You Use Zymox Otic?

You can use Zymox Otic daily for both a short period of time and a more extended period of time. The duration depends on the type of infection, the severity of the disease, and the root cause of the illness. Since it treats a medical condition, please rely on the advice of your vet.

Do Vets Recommend Zymox?

Yes, vets recommend Zymox to treat a variety of infections. Vets can also advise pet owners to use this medicine as a preventative to be used weekly or fortnightly to prevent diseases as well.

How Quickly Does Zymox Work?

Zymox starts to work immediately. However, you will see a noticeable difference within a week of regular use. You may also notice quicker results if this is used along with oral antibiotics that will dry up the infection from the inside. Your vet may prescribe oral medicine that is to be used in combination with these ear drops if they feel the severity of the condition warrants it.

Does Zymox Have Side Effects?

There are no reported side effects of Zymox. However, if you use the version that contains hydrocortisone, you should keep in mind that steroids can have side effects. The skin can become fragile with extended use, and you may even get a rash or skin reaction at the infection site. Contact your vet if you think your pet is experiencing any side effects.

Can Zymox Cause Deafness?

No, Zymox cannot cause deafness. If you think your pet's hearing is being affected, contact your vet immediately.

Is Zymox a Steroid?

The version that contains hydrocortisone contains a steroid. The version without hydrocortisone does not contain any steroid.

Is Zymox Antifungal?
Yes, Zynox is an antifungal. It is also antimicrobial and antibacterial.

What is a chronic ear infection in dogs?
Answer

Chronic ear infection in dogs refers to a long-lasting inflammation or infection of the ear canal. It is a common problem in dogs, especially those with long, floppy ears, such as Cocker Spaniels, Basset Hounds, and Retrievers. Chronic ear infections can be caused by various factors, including allergies, ear mites, bacteria, yeast, and foreign objects in the ear canal. Dogs with chronic ear infections may show symptoms such as frequent head shaking, scratching at the ear, discharge or odor from the ear, redness or swelling of the ear canal, and a tilted or drooping head. If left untreated, chronic ear infections can lead to more serious problems, such as hearing loss, facial nerve damage, or even a brain abscess.

What is the best treatment for chronic ear infections in dogs?
Answer

The first step in treating a chronic ear infection is to clean the ear canal. Your veterinarian may use a special cleaning solution to remove debris, wax, and discharge from the ear. This can help to reduce inflammation and make it easier for medication to reach the affected area. Depending on the type and severity of the infection, your veterinarian may prescribe antibiotic, antifungal, or anti-inflammatory medications. Some ear infections require oral medications, while others can be treated with ear drops or ointments. Zymox OTIC HC 1.0% Enzymatic Solution w/Hydrocortisone is a commonly prescribed medication for treating chronic ear infections in dogs. It is an enzymatic solution that contains hydrocortisone, an anti-inflammatory medication that helps to reduce inflammation and itching in the ear canal. In addition to Zymox OTIC HC 1.0% Enzymatic Solution w/Hydrocortisone, your veterinarian may also prescribe one or more of the following medications for treating chronic ear infections in dogs. If bacteria cause the ear infection, your veterinarian may prescribe antibiotics such as amoxicillin, cephalexin, or enrofloxacin. If the ear infection is caused by a fungal infection, your veterinarian may prescribe antifungal medications such as clotrimazole or ketoconazole. In some cases, your veterinarian may prescribe a steroid such as prednisone to reduce inflammation and swelling in the ear canal. If the ear infection is caused by an allergy, your veterinarian may recommend allergy testing to identify the allergen and prescribe medication or allergy shots to help manage the symptoms. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove polyps or tumors that are causing chronic ear infections.

What is the difference between chronic and acute otitis?
Answer

The main difference between chronic and acute otitis is the duration and severity of the ear infection. Acute otitis, also known as otitis externa or outer ear infection, is a sudden onset infection that usually lasts for a short period of time, typically a few days to a couple of weeks. It can be caused by various factors, including bacteria, yeast, or foreign objects in the ear canal. Symptoms of acute otitis may include ear pain, redness or swelling of the ear canal, discharge or odor from the ear, and shaking or scratching of the head. Chronic otitis, on the other hand, is a long-lasting ear infection that lasts for several weeks or months and may recur despite treatment. It is often caused by underlying conditions such as allergies, autoimmune diseases, hormonal imbalances, or ear anatomy abnormalities. Symptoms of chronic otitis may include recurrent ear infections, persistent inflammation or discharge from the ear, hearing loss, and damage to the ear canal or middle ear structures. In short, acute otitis is a sudden and short-lived ear infection, while chronic otitis is a long-lasting and recurring infection that may have more serious consequences if left untreated.

Can chronic ear infections in dogs be cured?
Answer

Chronic ear infections in dogs cannot always be cured, but they can often be managed with appropriate treatment and ongoing care. The treatment for chronic ear infections will depend on the underlying cause of the infection. In many cases, a combination of medications, such as antibiotics, antifungals, and anti-inflammatory drugs, along with regular cleaning of the ear canal, can help to control the infection and prevent it from recurring. In some cases, chronic ear infections can lead to more serious complications such as hearing loss, facial nerve damage, or even a brain abscess.

What antibiotic treats chronic ear infections in dogs?
Answer

The choice of antibiotic to treat chronic ear infections in dogs will depend on the underlying cause of the infection and the results of any diagnostic tests performed by your veterinarian. Enrofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against a wide range of bacteria, including those that commonly cause ear infections in dogs. Amoxicillin/clavulanic acid is a combination of two antibiotics that work together to fight bacterial infections. It is often used to treat chronic ear infections caused by resistant strains of bacteria. Clindamycin is effective against many types of bacteria and is often used to treat chronic ear infections caused by Staphylococcus bacteria. Tetracycline is effective against a range of bacteria, including those that commonly cause ear infections in dogs. It may be prescribed for dogs that are allergic to other types of antibiotics. Chloramphenicol is effective against many types of bacteria and is often used to treat chronic ear infections that have not responded to other antibiotics.

How do you prevent chronic ear infections in dogs?
Answer

Clean your dog's ears regularly with a gentle ear cleaner recommended by your veterinarian. This can help to remove excess wax and debris that can lead to infections. After swimming or bathing your dog, make sure to dry their ears thoroughly to prevent moisture from getting trapped in the ear canal, which can lead to infections. If your dog has allergies, work with your veterinarian to develop a plan to manage them. Allergies can lead to chronic inflammation and ear infections. Dogs with underlying health conditions such as hormonal imbalances or immune system disorders may be more prone to ear infections. Treating these conditions can help to reduce the risk of infections. Be careful when allowing your dog to play with toys or chew bones, as foreign objects can get stuck in the ear canal and cause infections. Feeding your dog a healthy, balanced diet can help to support their immune system and overall health, reducing the risk of ear infections. Bring your dog to the veterinarian for regular check-ups to monitor their ear health and detect any potential problems early on.

VERIFIED PURCHASER

I was pretty hesitant on ordering ear med's thinking that I had to get a vets prescription or the medicine would not work. I saw great reviews from several websites so I decided to try this. It seems to be working well in my dogs ear. Its been a little over a week and he hasn't been shaking his head. I would buy this again.

Answer to prayers

This product has been a godsend! One of our girls has extremely groovy ear wells so she seems like she always has a yeast infection that causes her to scratch and dig in her ears until they are bloody and sore. We were repeatedly taking her in to get prescription meds and we'd finish treatment, but then a few weeks later she'd be back to having problems again. I was at my wits end when I came across this listing, so we decided to give it a shot. This med is great and hasn't disappointed. Its easy to apply, just a squeeze in each ear and so simple my 12 year old does it. No cleaning it out afterwards and as long as we don't over apply it doesn't fly out when she shakes her head. When we first started she'd shake and drag her head on the floor, but after consistent usage she stopped even doing that. Now we keep a bottle on hand for flare ups and I'm back getting more because we're almost out.

ZYMOX 1.0% IS AWESOME

I have a cocker spaniel that has had ear issues since day one of bringing him home. I have tried so many different things thru the years and this product by far has ben the best to keep the infection away. I did have to use a vet to get rid of the infection, but once gone it has barely been visible. One ear has no problems at all and the problem ear has minimal issues which by using the product twice a week with regular cleaning of the ear canal with Q Tips. I don't believe this problem ear will ever be cleared up, but this product has improved his quality of life so much it is worth the time, money and effort.

Keep this in your pups medicine cabinet!

This treatment worked great on our rescued beagle. After an expensive trip to the vet and a prescription that didn't work, we tried Zymox. So glad I bought the bigger bottle! It has saved us from many trips to the vet. Any time her ears are irritated, I use the Zymox, and it clears up in few days. Well worth the investment!
