The manufacturer has not labeled this medication for use in cats, however, it may be prescribed by a veterinarian for extra-label use in cats for treating certain conditions.

Side effects . Is it true after the application of osurnia the ear can't get wet for 45 days??
Side effects reported in one study included elevated liver function tests, weight loss, vomiting, and decreased hearing. The package insert states that the ear canal should not be cleaned for 45 days after the initial administration to allow contact of the gel with the ear canal. If it is cleaned before the 45 day period after initial application, it can interfere with the effectiveness of the medication.
