Our pug was going deaf from an infection that just did not respond to prescribed antibiotics. Tho' the vet recommended continuing the antibiotic use, I discontinued them in lieu of the MaxiGuard Zn4.5Otic. Tho' 100% hearing has not been restored, he can hear a lot more than he did before. I would highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with ear problems in their dog.
Great Product =D by aimnhi from Missouri01/08/2012
Before I started using Zn Otic, my Lab experienced repeated and costly ear problems over a period of several years. However, once my vet prescribed this product as both an initial treatment and as a preventative treatment, my dog's ear problems stopped. During her acute ear infections, we used it as a wash between treating with meds. After the ear infections cleared, we use about 5-8 drops weekly in each ear. Now extra $$ can go towards toys for my companion instead of medical treatments. I recommend this highly!
