Surolan Otic Suspension
(miconazole nitrate, polymyxin B sulfate, prednisolone acetate)
Antifungal, Antibacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Kills Ear Mites
Surolan Otic Suspension is an effective treatment for common and recurring cases of
otitis externa and dermatitis in dogs. Surolan is a combination of antibiotic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory medications,
including polymyxin B, miconazole and prednisolone. This formulation gives Surolan broad effectiveness against the pathogens that
cause ear infections and make it less likely to develop into resistant cases. Surolan is dispensed as drops to
provide a rapid, penetrating action. Additionally, it can be
administered more comfortably and precisely to infected ears because it
is stable and fluid at room temperature.
Surolan is used in dogs for the therapeutic treatment of
otitis externa and dermatitis caused by:
- Yeasts and fungi
- Microsporum spp.
- Trichophyton spp.
- Candida spp.
- Malassezia pachydermatis
- Gram-positive bacteria
- Staphylococcus spp. (sensitive strains)
- Streptococcus spp. (sensitive strains)
- Gram-negative bacteria
- Pseudomona spp. (sensitive strains)
- Escherichia coli
- Ear mites
Surolan also has anti-inflammatory and antipruritic activity.
Dosage and Administration
Administer Surolan twice daily
for seven consecutive days.
Ears: After cleaning the ear canal, apply Surolan
and ensure an adequate distribution of the preparation by massaging the ear
base. Apply 3-5 drops of Surolan into the ear twice daily.
Skin: Ensure the wound is well covered with Surolan and rub into the
wound with a gloved hand. Apply Surolan to the affected areas twice daily.
The hair around and on lesion should be clipped at the start of
treatment and again during treatment, if necessary. Surolan is non-greasy,
non-staining and causes no irritation or toxic effects when applied topically.
Shake well before use.
For otic and
skin use only.
Not to be used in animals with perforated ear-drums since polymyxin B is
known to be a potential ototoxic agent. Surolan is contraindicated in dogs
with suspected or known hypersensitivity to miconazole nitrate, polymyxin B
sulfate or prednisolone acetate. Do not use with drugs known to induce
Surolan Composition (per ml):
- Miconazole Nitrate . . . 23 mg
- Polymyxin B Sulphate . . . 5500 IU (= 0.696 mg)
- Prednisolone acetate . . . 5 mg
- After topical application of miconazole nitrate virtually no systemic
absorption of miconazole from the skin or mucous membranes takes place.
- Absorption of polymyxin B via the skin, mucosae, burn wounds and other
wounds is negligible.
- Systemic absorption of prednisolone on normal or abraded skin is
minimal. The barrier to absorption appears to be located at the dermo-epithelial
junction with longterm depot formation in the upper epidermal layers without
any significant systemic absorption.
Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order
