Withdrawal periods
Not applicable
Do not administer to dogs suffering from perforation of the tympanic membrane.
Do not administer to dogs with known sensitivity to any of the ingredients.
Do not administer to pregnant or lactating bitches.
Usual adverse reactions associated with corticosteroid drugs may be observed (changes in biochemical and haematological parameters, such as increase of alkaline phosphatase and of aminotransferase, some limited neutrophilia)
Prolonged and intensive use of topical corticosteroid preparations is known to trigger local systemic effects, including suppression of adrenal function, thinning of the epidermis and delayed wound healing.
On rare occasions, the use of this product may be associated with deafness, mainly in elderly dogs and mostly of a transient nature.
Heavy reliance on a single class of antibiotic may result in the introduction of resistance in a bacterial population. It is prudent to reserve fluoroquinolones for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly to other classes of antibiotics.
Before treating with the product, the integrity of the tympanic membrane must be verified.
The external ear canal should be meticulously cleaned and dried before treatment.
Changes in biochemical and heamatological parameters (such as increase of alkaline phosphatase), aminotransferase, some limited neutophilia, eosinopenia, lymphopenia) are observed with three fold the recommended dosage: such changes are not serious and will reverse once treatment has stopped.
