Dermcare Otoflush is a neutral buffered ear flush formulated to clean the ear canal of wax and exudate in dogs, thereby improving the penetration of prescribed ear medication. Dermcare Otoflush has been shown to reduce microbial numbers and increase bacterial susceptibility to commonly used antibiotics.
In the presence of active infection, Dermcare Otoflush must be used in conjunction with an antibiotic ear treatment.
Dosage and Administration:
For at home use:
Remove the cap of the flush nozzle.
Insert the nozzle just into the ear canal opening and squeeze to fill the ear canal (approx 0.5mL for small breeds or 1.5mL for larger breeds) with Dermcare Otoflush.
Gently massage the ear then allow the dog to shake its head to remove debris and excess Dermcare Otoflush liquid from the ear.
Repeat this process until the Dermcare Otoflush liquid coming out of the ear is clean.
Wipe off any debris and excess liquid from the ear and ear opening.
Remove any adherent ear exudate from the flush nozzle before replacing the cap.
For routine ear cleaning repeat this procedure once weekly only.
For use in conjunction with an antibiotic ear treatment, repeat the procedure twice daily for a maximum of one week or as directed by a veterinary surgeon.
Ears should be flushed and excess Dermcare Otoflush removed prior to antibiotic use. Extended daily usage can result in tissue over hydration and may retard healing of the tympanic membrane.
Prolonged treatment should be monitored by a veterinarian.
