When an ear infection sets in, it can make your dog very uncomfortable. If your dog has otitis externa or some forms of dermatitis, your veterinarian may prescribe Surolan Otic Suspension to treat the infection and reduce the inflammation, itching, and pain.
Prescription Surolan combines antifungal, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory medicines in soothing ear drops that relieve ear infection quickly. Just few drops of the medicine as directed by your veterinarian contain a powerful combination of the active ingredients miconazole, polymyxin, and prednisolone.

My dog has become deaf since using the Surolan. I used a drop per day in each ear for 2 weeks. I stopped her treatment 3 days ago. Will she regain her hearing?
Reduced hearing or loss of hearing is an uncommon but potential adverse effect with Surolan. The manufacturer doesn’t report whether or not this adverse effect is reversible once therapy is discontinued. I recommend contacting your veterinarian as well as the manufacturer, Vetoquinol, at 1-800-835-9496 to report the adverse reaction and for further assistance.
Legally, this medication is by prescription only, and requries veterinary approval before dispensing.
Surolan Otic Suspension is a prescription medication. Part of the check-out process will be to include veterinarian information, and once an order is placed with us, we will fax over to your pet's veterinarian for approval on the prescription (unless you indicate during the check-out that you will be mailing a prescription to us).
Normally, therapy is for seven consecutive days. If symptoms of ear infection remain or if symptoms were to reappear, please contact your dog's veterinarian for further evaluation.
Can Surolan be used in cats for a bacterial infection. The new vet prescribed & the instruction says only for dogs! He did test verified that is bacteria infection. Jan 2012 the cat had Aural hematoma, surgery fixed but did not heal, That vet has moved. He also prescribed mometamax ointment. The cat is older good health and somewhat active.
Many ear medications are labeled only for dogs, including Surolan and Mometamax, but they can be used safely in cats on the order of a veterinarian. This is called using a medicine off label and is similar to using a medicine labeled for people to treat dogs or cats. Surolan contains an antibiotic called polymixin-B which hopefully will treat your cat’s bacterial infection successfully. Surolan also contains an anti-fungal medicine and an anti-inflammatory medicine. Consult your veterinarian if your cat is not improving or if you think your cat has any side effects from the medicine.
Two ear medications should not be giving at the same time unless specifically instructed to do so by your pet's current veterinarian.
