Treating Resistant Ear Infections in Dogs

Ear infections can cause a dog significant pain, resulting in behavioral changes. When infections persist despite therapy, our compounding pharmacist can work with your veterinarian to customize a medication that will adhere to the inside of ear (the ear canal) for 5 to 7 days when a poloxamer gel is used as the base. Poloxamer is liquid when it is cool, but up when warmed to body temperature, it changes to a gel that adheres to ear canal for 5-7 days, keeping the medication where it needs to be. Depending on the cause of the infection, the gel can contain the best combination of medications to treat the problem, such as a broad-spectrum antibiotic, an antifungal, and a corticosteroid to reduce inflammation. We want to see that tail wag again!
