Posatex Ear Drops general information

What is Posatex Ear Drops used for?

Posatex Ear Drops are a combination medication used as a topical treatment for chronic and acute otitis externa in dogs; also, to prevent acute exacerbations of recurrent otitis externa.  Otitis externa is an infection of the outer ear that is caused by fungi and/or bacteria.  Posatex Ear Drops are also effective for treating inflammation that is caused by the infection and helps relieve symptoms including itching, discomfort, redness and swelling. 

How does Posatex Ear Drops work?

Posatex Ear Drops contain a combination of three topical medications used together to treat otitis externa in dogs.  Orbifloxacin in Posatex Ear Drops is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic and is effective against a wide range of susceptible bacteria that can cause ear infection in dogs, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, enterococcus faecalis and coagulase positive staphylococci.  It works by inhibiting the DNA topoisomerase II (DNA-gyrase) and DNA topoisomerase IV enzymes that are needed for the synthesis of bacterial DNA, which prevents bacterial replication and kills the bacteria. Posaconazole in Posatex Ear Drops is a broad spectrum antifungal used to treat fungal infections of the skin.  It is effective against the yeast Malassezia pachydermatis (formerly Pityrosporum canis) that causes ear infections in dogs.  Posaconazole in Posatex Ear Drops works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, an important component of fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells.  This weakens the fungal cell membrane causing the cell contents to leak out killing the fungus.  Mometasone in Posatex Ear Drops is synthetic corticosteroid that works as an effective anti-inflammatory by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals like prostaglandins and leukotrienes.  The three components of Posatex Ear Drops work together to fight the infection that causes otitis; they also help relieve symptoms of inflammation caused by the infection.
