In a randomised, multicentric field clinical trial on dogs with otitis externa, the efficacy of an hydrocortisone aceponate-gentamicinmiconazole otic suspension (Easotic, Virbac, Carros, France) applied once daily for 5 days was compared to that of a betamethasone valerate-gentamicin-clotrimazole otic suspension (Otomax, Schering Plough Animal Health, Levallois-Perret, France) applied twice daily for 7 days. One-hundred and seventy-six dogs with bacterial and/or fungal otitis externa were… Expand

Evaluation of a single-administration ototopical treatment for canine otitis externa: a randomised trial
TLDR
This new ototopical formulation provides safe and effective treatment of canine OE and is an important alternative antimicrobial for this indication. Expand
Evaluation of Owner Compliance with Topical Treatment of Acute Otitis Externa in Dogs: A Comparative Study of Two Auricular Formulations.
Objectives: This study compared owner compliance with two ear treatments: Surolan® (Janssen) 3-5 drops twice daily for 7 days, or Easotic ® (Virbac), a pump application, once daily for 5 days.Expand
Field Comparison of the Impact of Different Treatment Durations in the Treatment of Acute Otitis Externa
TLDR
The flexible dosage and the veterinary monitoring permitted treatment duration to be adjusted based upon the severity of otitis externa thus increasing the likelihood of clinical cure and showing a tendency to be higher in the Aurizon?treated animals. Expand
Impact of a terbinafine–florfenicol–betamethasone acetate otic gel on the quality of life of dogs with acute otitis externa and their owners
TLDR
A veterinarian-administered otic gel provided equivalent efficacy and higher QoL to dogs with otitis externa and their owners, compared to an owner- Administered topical otic therapy. Expand
A pilot study to develop an objective clinical score for canine otitis externa.
TLDR
This pilot study showed that the 0-3 Otitis Index Score (OTIS3) for erythema, oedema/swelling, erosion/ulceration and exudate is suitable for further validation by a larger group of clinicians. Expand
Successful management of otitis externa
TLDR
Knowing how to recognise and understanding the significance of biofilms is important, as these are under diagnosed and have a major impact on antimicrobial efficacy, are important. Expand
MANAGING THE DISEASE
TLDR
Topical therapy is generally much more effective, and there are a very wide range of anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory options available (although not all are licensed for use in animals). Expand
Assessment of in vitro inhibitory activity of hydrogen peroxide on the growth of Malassezia pachydermatis and to compare its efficacy with commercial ear cleaners
TLDR
The comparative results demonstrated that hydrogen peroxide 1.5% showed excellent results for growth inhibition of M. pachydermatis, followed by Epiotic® and MalAcetic®, the lowest result was for Otoclean®. Expand
In vitro Antimicrobial Activity of Robenidine, Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid and Polymyxin B Nonapeptide Against Important Human and Veterinary Pathogens
TLDR
The combination of robenidine with EDTA or PMBN has potential for further exploration and pharmaceutical development, such as incorporation into topical and otic formulations for animal and human use. Expand
