GentaOtic Otic Solution

(Gentamicin Sulfate with Betamethasone Valerate)

GentaOtic Otic Solution is indicated for the treatment of acute and chronic canine otitis externa and canine and feline superficial infected lesions caused by bacteria sensitive to gentamicin.

GentaOtic Otic Solution combines the broad-spectrum activity of gentamicin sulfate with the anti-inflammatory and antipruritic activity of betamethasone valerate. Gentamicin is active against most gram-negative bacteria including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, indole-positive and negative Proteus sp., Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Aerobacter aerogenes and Neisseria. Gentamicin is also active against strains of gram-positive bacteria including Staphylococcus species and some Streptococcus species.

Betamethasone valerate provides anti-inflammatory and antipruritic activity in the topical management of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. In the response cases, the local anti-inflammatory activity is sustained by the vasoconstrictor properties of the steroid. Betamethasone valerate is a synthetic corticosteroid derivative of prednisolone.

GentaOtic Otic Solution is packaged in a convenient plastic squeeze bottle for easy application. Each mL contains gentamicin sulfate equivalent to 3 mg gentamicin base, betamethasone valerate equivalent to 1 mg betamethasone.

Dosage and Administration:
Duration of treatment will depend upon the severity of the condition and the response obtained. The duration of treatment and/or frequency of the dosage may be reduced, but care should be taken not to discontinue therapy prematurely.
For use in dogs and cats only.
