Do not use in dogs with known perforation of eardrums. The use of OTOMAX® ointment has been associated with deafness or partial hearing loss in a small number of sensitive dogs (e.g., geriatric), though this is usually temporary. If hypersensitivity occurs, treatment should be discontinued. Concomitant use of drugs known to induce ototoxicity should be avoided. Administration of recommended doses beyond 7 days may result in delayed wound healing. Avoid ingestion. Keep out of the reach of children. For complete safety information, refer to the product label.
