Cautions

Tell your veterinarian if your dog is pregnant or lactating. Hearing loss can occur in older dogs. Betamethasone can be absorbed into the blood stream, causing the adrenal gland function to slow down. Otomax may interact with some other medications. Inform your veterinarian of any and all medications your pet may be taking. Do not use Otomax in dogs that have perforated ear drums. Store at room temperature.

Adverse reactions and serious side effects are rare, but in the case of a more serious reaction, seek veterinary attention immediately. Common adverse reactions and more serious side effects are hearing loss in older dogs or dizziness or head tilt.
