Otoflush® cleans the ear canal of wax and exudate and reduces microbial numbers within the ear. It is also designed to be used as a pre-treatment to improve the penetration of and increase bacterial susceptibility to antibiotic ear preparations used to treat canine otitis externa.
Otitis externa, means inflammation of the externa part of the ear. Otitis externa is a multifactorial disease, meaning that many factors contribute to the disease process. These underlying factors must be addressed and managed for successful treatment of otitis externa, especially for chronic or recurrent bouts of ear disease.
Normally dogs have low numbers of resident bacteria and yeast on their skin (including ears). Any factor which alters the normal environment in the dog’s ear can trigger the natural residents to proliferate and result in an infection.
Some common underlying factors that may contribute to otitis externa include:
In the presence of an active infection, Otoflush® must be used in conjunction with an antibiotic treatment, as prescribed by your veterinarian.
If you are concerned your pet may have an ear infection, please visit your local veterinarian for a consultation. Diagnostic tests will be necessary to determine which factors are contributing to the disease. This is essential in determining the best treatment and product for your dog.
Otoflush® is registered for use in dogs.
