Canine ear infections associated with a yeast infection require special treatment. If your dog has this kind of ear infection, your veterinarian may prescribe Gentizol Ointment because it combines an antibiotic, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory into one convenient topical medication.
Chronic or acute ear infections, also called “otitis externa,” can be caused by a certain type of yeast called Malassezia pachydermatis. Yeast can grow quickly in the ear’s warm, moist environment causing pain, itching, irritation, and swelling and making your dog very uncomfortable. Gentizol Ointment is specifically formulated to treat ear infections due to yeast. This prescription medication combines three active ingredients, including gentamicin, betamethasone, and clotrimazole, to fight bacteria and fungi, and reduce swelling. The powerful trio works quickly and the topical ointment formulation is soothing on your dog’s ear.
