Cleansing Solution is clear, non-staining, non-toxic, and especially formulated
for the maintenance of dog and cat ears susceptible to yeast infection.
*Otipan Cleansing Solution contains a buffer system that prevents irritation
delicate lining of the ear canal from the acid pH of solution.
Yeast infections in the ears of dogs and cats are very common since the
yeast organism is everywhere in our environment. For example, dogs that
dig holes or rub their heads in the grass frequently infect themselves.
Re-infection is common, since most owners are unable to change or monitor
their pet's outdoor activities.
Many veterinarians are of the opinion that yeast is not the primary cause
of ear infections. They attribute the majority of infections to bacteria.
Most ointments used to treat ear infections contain antibiotics which
are ineffective on yeast. Even though the bacterial infection may be controlled,
the ear canal remains inflamed and irritated which results in optimal
conditions to allow the rapid growth of yeast. Increased acidity is one
of the most effective methods of controlling yeast infections.
Otipan Cleansing Solution is an acidic ear solution with a pH adjustment
to 2.5 or less. It is protected by a US Patent with claims directed to
the control of Malassezia (yeast) infections of the ear canal on
dogs and cats. It may also be applied to skin areas infected with yeast.
Otipan Cleansing Solution has a propylene glycol base that is similar
to many human cosmetic preparations, and is very soothing to the inflamed
tissues. Although it may look oily when applied, it is water soluble.
*Many ear maintenance products contain various types of acids, which can
cause severe damage to the cornea if the animal shakes its head and gets
a small amount in the eye! Otipan Cleansing Solution has a buffer system
to prevent damage should this happen. Otipan Cleansing Solution also contains
an ingredient that helps dissolve wax in the ear. Wax is produced in excessive
amounts when the canals are inflamed and irritated.
Some groups of related anitbiotics used in ear solutions, damage the nerves
producing hearing loss. Otipan Cleansing Solution will not cause nerve
damage even when used for long periods of time.
