Mometamax Otic Suspension for Dogs

Is your dog constantly scratching and rubbing his ears? He may have an itchy, painful ear infection. Quick relief comes from prescription Mometamax, broad-spectrum drops for treating canine ear infections. 

 

  • Quickly reduces inflammation, itching, and pain
  • Effective against swelling and bacterial and fungal infections
  • Reduces ear wax production
  • Dropper tip for convenient application 

Mometamax combines 3 powerful ingredients in one easy-to-administer medication: 

  • mometasone is a strong steroid
  • gentamicin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic
  • clotrimazole is an anti-fungal 

 

Together these ingredients effectively treat ear infections by reducing inflammation and killing or slowing the growth of bacteria, fungi, and yeast. 

 

The bottle’s long, thin dropper tip makes it easier to administer Mometamax drops in your dog’s ear. Over time, Mometamax may also help reduce ear wax production. 

 

 What you should know about Mometamax:

 

  • Don’t get this medication in your dog’s eyes, mouth, or nose. 
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your dog more medication than directed and don’t skip doses. 
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

  • Q:

    I was wondering if this drug can have any effect on humans, since my dog has been on it for a few days now and likes to lay on the same carpet my 2 year old plays on, if it can affect our skin or do something else since it's a steroid? 
    Asked on 6/21/2014 by Gaby31 from Virginia

    1 answer

    • A:

      Mometamax Otic Suspension does contain a corticosteroid, as well as an antibiotic and an antifungal. All of the active ingredients in this drug are also used on humans for their respective indications. It is commonly used in dogs for otitis externa (ear infection). When administering your dose, the ear canal should be clean and dry. Wash your hands after administering the drops as this would be the most common time to come into contact with the medication. If administered correctly, hands were properly washed, and no large spills have occurred, it would be very unlikely to cause any harm to you or your child.

      Thank you,

      Mometamax is a medication indicated to treat certain types of ear infections found in dogs. Your cat’s veterinarian may prescribe this medication for off-label use for your cat if he or she chooses to do so. Please contact the veterinarian for guidance relating to your pet’s drug therapy.

    Asked on 2/17/2014 by shauna03 from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Shauna,

      This medication does require a prescription. Typically, veterinarians won't approve a prescription for ear infection medication without a recent exam for the issue, so we recommend contacting your dog's veterinarian.

  • Q:

    does Mometamax require a prescription ?
    Asked on 12/24/2013 by 4blackoak9 from Tehachapi, CA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, Mometamax is a prescription medication. We can obtain the prescription from your pet's veterinarian in a couple different ways. Once an order is placed, we can fax the clinic requesting authorization for the prescription, and the clinic can fax the prescription back or they can call and approve the prescription over the phone. We can also accept a written prescription if your pet's veterinarian would prefer to issue you a hard copy, in which case, you would just need to drop that in the mail to us after placing your order, and we'll be able to dispense the medication once we receive that prescription here.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    How long will this take to arrive?
    Asked on 12/11/2013 by Angel

    1 answer

    • A:

      Angel,

      The length of time a prescription order can take varies some.  For a typical order, once it is placed, we will fax over to your pet's veterinarian for the prescription, and generally receive those back within one to two business days, depending on the clinic.  Once we receive the prescription from the veterinarian, it generally takes a business day to process the prescription and have it ready to ship out.  Our standard shipping (which is free on most orders over $39) is 5 to 8 business days.  We do expedited shipping options available, which would allow your order to arrive faster once the prescription is received.

      If your clinic does not authorize faxed prescriptions, they may issue a written prescription for the medication, in which case, that prescription would need to be mailed to us, which can add several additional days to the order.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    can this be used on puppies who are 4 months old
    Asked on 8/2/2013 by Debra

    1 answer

    • A:

      Debra,

      Mometamax will be dosed by weight and not by age, so there should not be any concerns with the age of your puppies. Mometamax has minimal systemic absorption if used appropriately and accurately as an ear drop. The dose will be determined by your pets' veterinarian, but standard dosing for Mometamax is 4 drops into the affected ear canal daily for 7 days for dogs weighing less than 30 pounds, and 8 drops into the affected ear canal daily for 7 days for dogs weighing more than 30 pounds.

      Thank you,

I brought my 8 year old, fur baby in to a regular visit to the vet. They noticed some yeast in his ears and prescribed 7-8 drops/ear for 14 days along with Prednisone. After a few days we noticed he wasn't hearing well, but shrugged it off to being tired from his meds. After 7 days of application, we finally realized our Moose, who 7 days prior could hear a pin drop, was 80-90% deaf. It is heart-breaking to us and to him--he is so confused and sad.

We have reported to the vet and Merck Animal Health. It is a known, but not too common side effect, that impacts mostly older dogs, and/or any dog with a perforated ear drum. Our vet confirmed when we brought him back the next day that his eardrums were intact, but he still lost his hearing. Luckily, his hearing is slowly coming back after 2+ weeks (maybe 50-60% hearing now), but many people have reported their pets never regaining hearing. Please be careful and ask your vet about possible side effects from this medication or any medication with Gentamyacin in it (the antibiotic is what causes the ototoxicity).

Steer clear if you have a pet who is older or any pet that doesn't allow the vet to look deep inside the ear canal to ensure no perforations. If you notice hearing changes in your pet, discontinue the medication immediately and return to your vet. I had not received that advice and we are learning the hard way, but hope to spare you all the pain of what we have gone through.

Mometamax recommended by VET for ear issues

By 

from Port Saint Lucie, Florida

Comments about Merck Animal Health Mometamax Otic Suspension:

We have 2 cats, one consistently chews the ears on the other till they are cut and bleeding. The VET recommended MOMETAMAX for this problem. With MOMETAMAX, the cuts heal very quickly, and
the taste deters the agressor cat for chewing on the ears.

      Comments about Merck Animal Health Mometamax Otic Suspension:

      I have a American Cocker Spaniel with the most beautiful ears, but they are prone to ear infections. Aside from proper daily cleaning and using soft scrunchie to hold her ears up to allow air to the ears, I've found that using the Mometamax Otic Suspension as a part of the daily cleaning completely takes care of any infection that is very hard to resolve. I use an ear wash and soft cotton ball to clean daily and the Mometamax Otic Suspension about 30 minutes after the wash. No more scratching and shaking of the head, just a satisfied Little Miss. I recommend this product. Ask your vet for the script and buy it from VetRxDirect.
