Description

EasOtic is used to treat common types of ear trouble in dogs. It contains ingredients to kill the bacteria and yeasts (especially Malassezia) found in large numbers in most cases of canine otitis, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent to reduce discomfort, swelling and further discharge within the ear canal. EasOtic is presented in a bottle with a pump action which quietly, comfortably and easily delivers the correct dose of medication (1ml) into the ear canal. Once daily dosing for 5 days is normally recommended. If there is a significant amount of wax or discharge within the ear canal, it is very helpful to use a water-based ear cleaner first. Once the ear canal has been cleaned, it should be left to dry before EasOtic is applied. Sometimes it is also helpful to clip excess hair away from the opening to the ear canal first.

Presentation

Ear drops suspension for dogs containing:

Hydrocortisone aceponate 1.11mg/mL

Miconazole as nitrate 15.1mg/mL

Gentamicin as sulfate 1505IU/mL

Uses

Treatment of acute otitis externa and acute exacerbation of recurrent otitis externa associated with bacteria susceptible to gentamicin and fungi susceptible to miconazole in particular Malassezia pachydermatis.

Dosage and administration

Auricular use. One mL contains 1.11mg hydrocortisone aceponate, 15.1mg miconazole (as nitrate) and 1505 IU gentamicin (as sulfate).

It is recommended that the external ear canal should be cleaned and dried before treatment and excess hair around the treatment area be cut.

Shake the bottle thoroughly before first administration and prime the pump.

The recommended dosage is 1mL of the veterinary medicinal product per ear once a day for five consecutive days.

Introduce the atraumatic canula in the ear canal. Administer one dose (1mL) of the product in each affected ear. This dose is adequately delivered by one pump activation. The airless pump allows the product to be administered whatever the position of the bottle is.

After application, the base of the ear may be massaged briefly and gently to allow the preparation to penetrate to the lower part of the of the ear canal. The product as presented allows treating a dog suffering from bilateral otitis. The veterinary medicinal product should be used at room temperature (i.e. do not instil cold product).

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients, to corticosteroids, to other azole antifungal agents and to other aminoglycosides. If hypersensitivity to any of the components occurs, treatment should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.

Do not use if the eardrum is perforated.

Do not use concurrently with substances known to cause ototoxicity.

Mild to moderate redness of the ear was common (2.4% of treated dogs). Papules were observed uncommonly (less than 1% of treated dogs). In all cases, treatment with the veterinary medicinal product was not discontinued and all dogs recovered without any specific therapy.

The use of auricular preparations may be associated with hearing impairment, usually temporary, and primarily in geriatric dogs. In this case, treatment should be stopped.

Owners should be advised that if they notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in this data sheet, they should inform their veterinary surgeon.

Bacterial and fungal otitis is often secondary in nature and appropriate diagnosis should be used to determine the primary factors involved. Use of the veterinary medicinal product should be based on identification of infecting organisms and susceptibility testing and take into account official and local antimicrobial policies.

The safety of the veterinary medicinal product has not been established during pregnancy and lactation. Systemic absorption of hydrocortisone aceponate, gentamicin sulfate and miconazole nitrate being negligible, it is unlikely for any teratogenic, foetotoxic or maternotoxic effects to occur at the recommended dosage in dogs.

Use only accordingly to the risk-benefit assessment by the responsible veterinary surgeon.

Compatibility with ear cleaners has not been demonstrated.

Warnings for user:

In case of accidental skin contact, it is recommended to wash thoroughly with water.
