- What is Tresaderm used for?
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.
- What are the 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.
- What special precautions are there?
Application of Tresaderm should be limited to not longer than one week. Tresaderm is for topical use in dogs and cats only. Avoid contact with the eyes. Systemic effects from prolonged use of topical corticosteroids are unlikely. However, if there is increased thirst, weakness, lethargy or gastro-intestinal disturbances these may be due to salt and water retention caused by the corticosteroid.
- In the event of overdose?
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.
