" medication for dog ear infection "
To be clear about this, EcoEars is a natural ear cleaner, not a medicine. The all natural ingredients in EcoEars are natural disinfectants which are designed to “dis-infect” your pets ears as opposed to “treating an ear infection.” We are contacted almost every single day by customers who tell us that their pet’s infection went away permanently after years of fighting these difficult symptoms. However, because EcoEars is not listed as an FDA approved medication, no claims can be made regarding its effectiveness for treating dog ear infections.
Ear infections could occur either in the outer ear, middle or inner ear. The vet will prescribe medicated drops or oral tablets such as Baytril, Panolog, Animax or Tresaderm for infections caused due to bacteria or yeast. It's important to clean your dog's ears periodically and check for foul odor or infection. Although there are several over the counter ear cleansing solutions, it's best to use one prescribed by the vet that's best suited to your dog. Along with medication, consider grooming your pet's excessive ear hair.
In most cases, the vet will clean the dog's ear before administering any medication so the ear doesn't provide an environment that fosters more bacterial or fungal growth. Treatment usually involves a liquid, ointment or cream antibiotic applied directly into the ear. Occasionally, the vet may administer an injection or prescribe oral antibiotics to provide a faster response to the infection. In the case of a yeast infection, antifungals are necessary and steroids also may be part of the treatment regimen to reduce inflammation and swelling.If you think your dog may have an ear infection, it is important to consult your veterinarian. Treatment for canine ear infections depends on the underlying cause of the infection as well as the specific type of infection involved. Ear cleaners or topical medications, such as ear drops or lotion, are common in soothing canine ear infections. Sometimes, additional medications may be necessary to decrease swelling in the ear canals or treat infections that have migrated into the deeper structures of the ear, such as the middle or even inner ear. Mometamax Otic Suspension is a prescription medication FDA approved for use in dogs only. It is available in 15 gm plastic dropper bottles. Use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed by your veterinarian, even if the pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely healed. Shake well before use. The usual dose for dogs weighing less than 30 lbs is place 4 drops into the ear canal once a day. For dogs weighing 30 lbs or more, place 8 drops into the ear canal once a day. Therapy should continue for 7 consecutive days. Avoid getting this medication in the pet's eyes, nose or mouth.Ointments and creams for canine ear infections come in tubes, and are administered by inserting the tube a small distance into the dogs outer ear, using caution to avoid injuring the dog's ear canal and eardrum. You should not insert the tube deeply into the ear. Squeezing the tube releases a small amount of medication, which you should gently massage into your dog's ear. As with other ear medications, your dog may shake his or her head vigorously after administration. This is expected and does not mean the medication will not work.

In 2003, after several vet trips over 2 years and trying a variety of antibiotics and ear infection medications, (the infection would go away for a few months and then come back), we set out to find a medicine for our dog’s ear infection that is all natural, won’t harm pets or people, and that actually works. It simply didn’t exist. So we decided to pursue this further.
