What is Posatex Otic Suspension?

Posatex Otic Suspension is available by prescription only. Posatex Otic Suspension is indicated in the treatment of otitis externa, (“swimmer’s ear”). Otitis externa is an inflammation of the outer ear and ear canal. These inflammations can be a result of bacterial and/or yeast infections.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal medication, treats otitis externa in dogs
  • Simple once-a-day dosing into the ear canal

How it Works?

Posatex Otic Suspension contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties to treat otitis externa, which is inflammation in the ear canal due to yeast and bacteria. Dogs with floppy ears tend to more susceptible to otitis externa since there is a limited amount of air-flow to the ear which creates a moist dark environment where bacteria and yeast thrive. Posatex Otic Suspension works by combining a broad spectrum antibiotic called Orbifloxacin, a potent anti-inflammatory agent called Mometasone Furoate Monohydrate and Novel triazole, a antifungal new to animal health.

Storage:

Store between 36-86°F (2-30°C).

  • Shake well before use.
  • Posatex Otic Suspension is applied into the ear canal for up to 7 days, unless told otherwise by veterinarian.
  • Avoid getting Posatex Otic Suspension in the dog's eyes, nose or mouth
  • Talk to your veterinarian before instilling any other ear medications while administering Posatex Otic Suspension.

Side Effects

Side effects associated with this medication are related to the individual ingredients. The systemic administration of quinolones such as orbifloxacin has been shown to produce cartilage erosion of weight bearing joints and other signs of arthropathy in immature animals of various species. Mometasone is a corticosteroid but is applied topically. Long term use of topical otic corticosteroids has been associated with adrenocortical suppression and iatrogenic hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing's disease). Posaconazole is an antifungal. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.
