My labs had chronic ear infections/allergies; we used the vet-recommended solutions/procedures, but everytime we cleaned their ears, it got worse. Now we just wipe their ears out with the cleanser and put a squirt of the Zymox Otic in to follow. The labs haven't had an ear infection since. We won't use anything else -- these products are superior to their competition!
ZYMOX W HYDROCORTIZONE
CAN NOT LIVE WITHOUT IT...WE HAVE GOLDENDOODLES AND WHEN USING THIS PRODUCT WE HAVE NO EAR INFECTONS AT ALL. WE HAVE ONE THAT IS ALLERGIC TO RX MEDS EVEN THE MILDEST AND REACTED SEVERLY...THE VET DIDN'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO SO WE READ OF THIS AND BEGAN USING OVER A WEEKEND BEFORE THE NEXT VISIT AND STOPPED THE OTHER MEDS AT THE SAME TIME. THE VET WAS SURPRISED AND SAID IT IS WORKING KEEP USING IT SINCE YOU KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WORSE GET IN HERE IS YOU SEE THAT AND WE WILL TRY SOMETHING ELSE OR WE WILL SEE YOU IN A WEEK IN ABOUT A WEEK SHE WAS HEALED. NOW WE USE IT ON EVERY ONE FOR EARS. WE HAVE THE SKIN OINTMENT FOR RASHS, CUTS OR ITCHING. WE CAN'T SAY ENOUGH AND ONLY ORDER THE CLINIC SIZE ABOUT EVERY MONTH FOR ALL OF OUR BABIES,
I have a golden retriever that has a chronic ear condition. After a necessary ear surgery for a ruptured blood vessel, actually two surgeries, and then about three rounds of antibiotics he wasn't getting better. I was also using vinegar and water and ear cleaner from the vet. The last thing the vet suggested was prednisone which I said no to. I switched him to grain free food and started to use Zymox on his ears and I think we are finally winning the battle.
Zymox Otic is wonderful !

After being for a long time on antibiotics, my cat develpped yeast infection on his skin and in his ears. I tried to treat the black spots on the outer areas of his ears, but they would reappear again. Then I realized that the infection comes from inside the ear and applied the Zymox Otic for 2 weeks. It took care of all spots and my cat's ears are clean since. Other Zymox products took care of his skin.
Thank you very much!
Good stuff for bad ears
I have an Old English Mastiff, and looking into his ears is like checking the Grand Canyon in the dark. I make up and use an ear cleaner, but when he gets an infected ear, usually in the fall, this is the stuff you need. It is thick, but goes easily into the ear, which you then massage for a few minutes (in my case, at least I no longer have to sit on the dog, as Zymox has no odor). Then you let him get up and shake his head, hopefully after you have cleared the decks, as the stuff comes flying out of his ears with anything that needs to be gone. In the case of a Mastiff, this means you have stuff on walls and chandeliers, but for most dogs, not any big deal, and you can do it outside if that's easier. It is greasy on the fingers, so have a wiper handy. But it is by far the best ear medication I've ever used, and may save you a vet bill!

I am a professional groomer/doggie sitter, and this is the ONLY medication that has ever worked on any of my clients fur-babies. I have several (at least 40) fur-babies that have allergies/yeast problems with their ears, and have lived with the constant itching, scratching, "going out of their minds" pain for years. Once I treat them with this, the parents are in utter disbelief. This works better than anything I have ever tried. A lot of the veterinarians like the allergies "merry-go-round" - because they keep patients coming back over and over - bringing in more and more money. I love Zymox because it doesn't put a band-aid over the problem - it FIXES it. If your doggie has itching, scratching and nothing else has worked - get yourself some Zymox and put your baby on a GRAIN FREE DIET.....and watch them get healthy again!!! Changing their diet is most important and seems to stop the symptoms in only a few weeks. Zymox is better than the Animax from the vet, which does NOTHING. I wouldn't use anything else - and every single customer calls me and is so relieved that their problem is solved and their baby isn't SUFFERING anymore!!!
No cleaning before use
This mixture with hydrocortisone has worked to heal up the redness and inflammation that was in my Otterhound's ears. He was shaking his head so much I was fearful he might hurt his big ears. The Zymox Otic has worked very well to clear up his ears and it does not require that you clean the ears before you use it. A benefit since the Boys don;t like their ears cleaned.
I have 2 newfs and this works great keeping them from getting infections. only down side is if you get it in the fur it dries gummy
our jack has had too many ear problems to count. he is allergic to everything. i have tried it all...this is the first product that has worked...thankyou!!!!!!!!!!
It really works!!!
Pepper, my lab mix had ear infections throughout his life. He is 10 years old. His ears would get so infected that he wouldn't allow anyone to touch his ears, and if you did, he would cry out in pain. His ears had a foul odor, with a greasy looking discharge, and they became scarred from all the scratching. The smell was so bad that it would often turn my stomack, and it made it difficult to be around him. We took Pepper to the vet several times, and after 100's of dollars and many tests later, the doc couldn't pinpoint what the problem was or how to cure it. They gave us medicine to try, but the ear infections would never go away. In desperation, I searched on the internet for alternate treatment options, and I finally came across Zymox. I was skeptical, but I had to give it a try for Pepper's sake. We used this product daily for about 2 weeks, after which we alternated cleaning and Zymox treatments weekly. This was about a year and a half ago, and I'm very happy to say that there has been ZERO recurrance of the ear infections. There's no gunk, no smell, and most importantly no pain. Whenever I think about this I whish we had come across this product years before, but I'm soooo thankful that I found it. If your dog has ear infections that the vet can't cure, do your dog a huge favor and please try this!!!
This product should be given to any dog owner that has problem with their dog's ears....It is amazing. My cocker spaniel's groomer suggested this to me. I couldn't get her ears to stay clear from infection. I started using this and I was amazed. What I also like is you don't use anything else. I will keep this on hand and tell everyone that I talk to who has these problems about this product.

We have a Golden Retriever who has food allergies. He cannot tolerate any type of food which is in the carb family. He develops severe ear infections. They swell up, itch, bleed and smell terrible. We purchased this product and the wash and his ears cleared up beautifully. He no longer threw himself on his worse ear when we came near him.. He still has to be keeped on a very restricted diet but if he does get into something and the ears start to act up, treatment with this product takes care of this immediately. He has been to many veterinarians and no medicine before has ever helped him.
I initially bought Zymox Otic in from my vet in 2009 and it worked exactly as promised on my Lab's bacterial ear infection. Fast forward to 2011 -- he had another one.
Better price than at my vet's office
I need to use this product for yeast overgrowth, etc. in a couple of my dog's ears. It is very effective; however, it needs to be used daily for some time, and it has a "lubricating oil" like texture (not something you would want on your animal's coat). EntirelyPets sells it for less than my vet's office, so I like that!
