MALMETAZONE™ OTIC SUSPENSION
A new suspension for the treatment of otitis externa in dogs that contains:
• Gentamicin Sulfate, USP, equivalent to 3 mg gentamicin base
• Mometasone Furoate Monohydrate, equivalent to 1 mg mometasone;
• Clotrimazole, USP 10 mg
• All in a mineral oil-based system containing a plasticized hydrocarbon gel.
Malmetazone™ Otic Suspension is indicated for the treatment of otitis externa in dogs
caused by susceptible strains of yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and bacteria (Pseudomonas
spp. including P .aeruginosa, coagulase positive staphylococci, Enterococcus faecalis,
Proteus mirabilis, and beta-hemolytic streptococci.)
Since Malmetazone™ only requires one treatment daily, it is easier for clients that
have to treat their dogs that are suffering from an ear infection. And since
mometazone furoate monohydrate is so much more potent than anti-inflammatory
agents like betamethasone, Malmetazone™ Otic Suspension rapidly controls
the inflammation that can occur in the external ear while helping to reduce
the related pain.
For dogs that weigh less than 30 lbs, administer 4 drops per ear, once
daily for 7 days and for dogs that weigh more than 30 lbs, it is
recommended to adminster 8 drops per ear, once daily for 7 days.
Malmetazone™ Otic Suspension is available in 7.5 g, 15 g, 30 g
and 215 g plastic bottles.
