A three-step approach designed to give veterinary professionals more confidence in treating first line ear problems has been unveiled by specialist vet products company Animalcare.

This “unique approach” sees the company introduce the Super-earo’s – a trio dedicated combating ear infections, from prevention to cure.

Animalcare veterinary advisor Tamsin Day said: “The Super-earo’s represent a range of three products that cover cleaning, treatment and prevention. Pet owners will find them easy to administer, which will also help to keep these owners compliant to their treatment schedule.”

Step 1:  cleaning with Oticare

Oticare is a non-irritating ear cleaner specially formulated to keep ears hygienically clean, restoring the normal microbiological balance of the ear canal.

Suitable for dogs and cats, Oticare is an alcohol-free and very effective ceruminolytic, used to ensure removal of cell debris and cerumen.

Including essential oils and propylene glycol to soothe and moisturise the ear canal lining, Oticare contains a low concentration of lactic acid and salicylic acid, and has the right ingredients to create the correct, healthy ear environment, Animalcare claims.

Step 2:  treating with Aurimic

Aurimic provides a triple defence against otitis externa and small localised superficial skin infections by combining three “tried and trusted” substances – polymyxin B, miconazole and prednisolone acetate.

Aurimic treats the most common causes of otitis externa, and the synergistic effects of polymyxin B and miconazole allow the reduction of antibiotic concentration and help to minimise the probability of resistance, the manufacturer states.

Step 3:  prevention with Oticurant

Animalcare’s terrific trio in the flesh: Oticurant, Aurimic and Oticare.

A completely new concept for maintaining healthy ears, Oticurant is an easy to administer, odourless mixture of fine powder presented in single dose sachets.

According to Animalcare, Oticurant combines three pathways to support the management of a healthy ear:

  • lactic acid lowers the pH
  • kaolin and lactose absorb any additional moisture
  • special sugars prevent bacterial adherence to the skin in the ear canal

Together, this range of ear care products will give you confidence in treating ear infections, the manufacturer claims.
