A natural, complexed zinc, non-staining ear care formula for pets. Calms sensitive ears (antipruritic).

Usage - MAXI/GUARD® Zn 4.5 Otic is not an ear cleanser. Boric acid combined with amino acid complexed zinc, is very effective for otitis typically associated with allergic ear disease. It can be used on acute or chronic ears.
Zn4.5 Otic offers these positive benefits:
1) calming pruritic and painful ears for 2-3 days prior to cleansing;
2) clinical and home use post-cleaning in dogs affected with otitis externa; and
3) home maintenance after control of chronic, severely affected ears with powerful antibiotics and steroids
Zn4.5 Otic is great for fostering healing or returning the micro-environment of the ear to normality. Chronic Pseudomonas ears require powerful antibiotics and steroids, but Zn 4.5 Otic can be used as an adjunct in these situations for restoration in a shorter period of time. DIRECTIONS:
For initial application, cleanse ear canal with a suitable cleanser, fill ear canal with Zn 4.5 Otic, massage base of ear canal and let dry. For subsequent applications, apply 5-8 drops twice daily. Ears should be reevaluated by a veterinarian on a regular basis. If undue irritation develops or increases, discontinue use and consult your veterinarian
