One of the most common prescribed pet drugs is Tresaderm. Tresaderm is used to treat ear and skin conditions even when the underlying cause is not known. Only Tresaderm contains the unique combination of active ingredients that makes it the proven solution for dogs and cats, including:
- Antifungal thiabendazole – controls the most common forms of fungus that cause infection.
- Anti-inflammatory dexamethasone – a fast-acting corticosteroid, reduces inflammation and relieves pain and itching.
- Antibacterial neomycin – sulfate quickly kills bacteria that can cause otitis externa and common skin infections.
When should I give my pet Tresaderm: Tresaderm is a dermatologic solution indicated as an aid in the treatment of certain bacterial, fungal and inflammatory skin disorder and otitis externa in dogs and cats.
How Tresaderm should be used: Clean the affected area prior to use. The amount of medication to apply and the frequency of treatment are dependent on the severity and extent of the lesions. The typical dose for the ear is 5 to 15 drops instilled into the ear twice a day. To treat skin disorders affecting other than the ear, the surface of the lesion should be well moistened (2 to 4 drops per square inch) with Tresaderm twice a day. Application of Tresaderm should be limited to a period of not longer than one week.
Tresaderm Side Effects: On rare occasions dogs may be sensitive to neomycin. In these animals, application of the medication will result in redness and swelling of the treated area which may last for 24 to 48 hours. In some instances there is transient discomfort that may last for 2 to 5 minutes after application.
