Topical Antimicrobial-Corticosteroid Solution
Tresaderm - Merial is a dermatologic solution indicated for the treatment of certain bacterial mycotic, and inflammatory dermatoses and otitis externa in dogs and cats. Tresaderm is used for both acute and chronic forms of these skin disorders.
Many forms of dermatoses are caused by bacteria (chiefly Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). These organisms often act as opportunists or concurrent pathogens that may complicate already established mycotic skin disorders, or ear mite infestation caused by Otodectes cynotis. The principle etiologic agents of dermatomycoses in dogs and cats are species of Microsporum and Trichophyton.
Tresaderm formulation combines these several medications in a complementary form for control of the discomfort and direct treatment of dermatitis and otitis externa produced by the infectious agents listed above.
Thiabendazole-Dexamethasone-Neomycin Sulfate Solution
- Neomycin is antibacterial against both gram-negative and gram-positive pathogens.
- Thiabendazole is effective against the important dermatophytes.
- Dexamethasone, a synthetic adrenocorticoid steroid, inhibits the reaction of connective tissue to injury and suppresses the classic inflammatory manifestations of skin disease.

Dosage and Administration: Prior to the administration of dermatologic
solution Tresaderm remove the ceruminous, purulent or foreign material from
the ear canal, as well as the crust which may be associated with dermatoses

amount to apply and the frequency of treatment are dependent upon the severity
and extent of the lesions.
