Epi-Otic contains four broad-spectrum antimicrobials, treating and protecting against a broad range of infections. It has proven efficacy against the major ear pathogens, including Staphylococcus intermedius, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus spp and Malassezia pachydermatis.
When used as a preventative, Epi-Otic removes debris, cerumen and pus from the ear canal and also has a drying agent to remove excess moisture.
When to use:
For routine cleansing: Apply 2 - 3 times a week as needed. Routine cleansing can be performed after shampooing or swimming to help minimise excessive moisture within the ear canal as this may contribute to infection and inflammation.
Before application of medicated treatment: Use Epi-Otic daily.
As a preventative maintenance: Use Epi-Otic weekly to reduce the risk of recurrence.
Directions for use: Hold the ear flap and lift it into a vertical position. Aim tip of bottle into the ear canal and squeeze the bottle to apply solution liberally, enabling a flushing action. Without letting go of the ear flap, gently massage the base of the ear to disperse Epi-Otic throughout the ear canal for 1 minute. Remove the excess fluid and debris with a ball of cotton wool or tissue. Repeat until the excess fluid no longer looks dirty.
Precaution: Always consult your veterinarian for advice if your pet is showing signs of an active ear infection for an accurate diagnosis.
