MOMETAMAX is a combination of three active ingredients and, when used appropriately, is a very effective topical product for ear infections. Many times, ear infections consist of bacterial and yeast organisms, both acting as potential pathogens. A broad spectrum agent like MOMETAMAX is many times an excellent choice for treating these combination infections. Ideally, a bacterial culture and sensitivity should proceed initiation of ear treatment, however, it is sometimes cost prohibitive to do so in each case. We will sometimes, after examining ear cytology, dispense MOMETAMAX without the benefit of a culture and sensitivity. As long as the ear is cleaned before treatment and MOMETAMAX is used daily, positive responses are consistently seen.
One thing to always remember is to use ear medications consistently and to use them as prescribed by your veterinarian. Resistant infections will result from inconsistent or intermittent use of MOMETAMAX, and you don't want to deal with a chronic ear infection for your pet's entire life. So even though it can be a challenge to treat ears, always use this medication as directed. Good luck!
If you notice any behavioral or physiological changes in your pet while giving Mometamax, contact your veterinarian immediately.
Adverse Reactions and Serious Side Effects
- Adverse reactions and serious side effects are rare, however, side effects can occur. In the case of an adverse reaction or a serious side effect, you should stop Mometamax treatment and seek veterinary attention immediately.
