Mupirocin for Dogs

Your veterinarian may prescribe Mupirocin if your dog is suffering from painful, uncomfortable hot spots,  also known as “pyoderma.” This effective, soothing antibiotic ointment is formulated to treat a range of bacterial skin infections.

  • Effectively treats pyoderma (hot spots) and other bacterial skin infections
  • Slows the growth of bacteria
  • Broad-spectrum antibiotic
  • Helps relieve itchy, painful skin lesions

 

When your dog has a bacterial skin infection, you want to relieve the discomfort and stop the infection in its tracks.  Prescription Mupirocin ointment does both. This broad-spectrum topical antibiotic is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin including those infections caused by susceptible strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus intermedius. Prescription Mupirocin stops the bacteria from growing while soothing existing hot spots and infected areas.

  • Talk to your veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

      Jer,

      Mupirocin is a prescription medication, so you should contact your physician with any questions regarding whether the medication would be appropriate for use in your situation.  As we are a veterinary pharmacy, we do not dispense for human use and can only accept prescriptions from licensed United States veterinarians.

      Thank you,

    • A:

      Raul,

      Mupirocin is a prescription item and requires authorization from your pet's veterinarian before an order can be shipped. If your pet has a current examination with a veterinarian, place your order and we will contact the clinic for authorization.

      Thank you,

Very Effective as Part of Treatment Plan for MRSA

Comments about Taro Mupirocin Topical Ointment, 2%:

We've been using this product for several years; our Old English Mastiff somehow managed to contract 3 MRSA strains, and still has two strains. The pustules are very painful for her, especially when they're in between her toes or on the bottom of her paws. This medication is a godsend for us. First, it works wonders on the pustules, often eliminating new small ones overnight, and heals and shrinks the larger ukkies.
Secondly, since it's in an ointment form, it provides a soothing base and eases her pain.

Mupuricin ointment can't fight MRSA on its own, but it's a fabulous weapon to have in your arsenal if your pet has a skin condition, especially if its related to MRSA.

Comments about Taro Mupirocin Topical Ointment, 2%:

My vet recommended this ointment for my dogs skin irritations and sores. It is Rx so I had to wait for my vet and Vetrxdirect to get it together and get the ointment out. Took a very long time, so I was dissapointed in that. Product fine.
