Otoclean Indications

OTOCLEAN is formulated to gently clean, deodorize and acidify the external ear canal in dogs and cats. This will aid in the treatment of acute and chronic cases of otitis externa and will promote the maintenance of healthy ears.

Administration Directions:

1. Open the vial by turning the plastic cap.

2. Raise the animal’s ear flap and squeeze the recommended volume of cleanser into the ear canal.

3. Gently massage the base of the ear. Wipe away any excess with a cotton swab.

Directions For Use

Apply liberally into the ear canal. For large and medium sized animals instill contents of one vial (5 ml) into each ear.

For small animals instill the contents of 1/2 vial into each ear. You can reseal the vial by snapping on its removable cap. Each vial can be kept for reuse in the same ear to prevent cross infections.

As an aid in the treatment of otitis externa apply 2-3 times daily for up to 7 days or as recommended by your veterinarian.

For the routine maintenance of healthy ears (particularly in those dogs that are predisposed to otitis externa) apply 1-2 times weekly or as recommended by your veterinarian.

For cases of disagreeable ear odour, apply OTOCLEAN once a day for 8 days or as recommended by your veterinarian.

Cautions: Consult your veterinarian if your pet shakes or scratches ears frequently. If redness or irritation develops or persists, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian. For otic use only. Avoid contact with your pet’s eyes.

Warning

Keep out of the reach of children.

Storage

Do not store above 25°C. Do not freeze.

Presentation: 18 x 5 ml vials.
