General Information on Surolan
The generic and chemical names of Surolan are polymyxin b sulfate, miconazole nitrate, and prednisolone acetate. Prednisolone acetate is an adrenocortical steroid product and prepared in the form of a sterile ophthalmic suspension that helps reduce itching, redness, swelling, and other allergic reactions in the eye. Miconazole nitrate is an anti-fungal agent, while polymyxin b sulfate is a polypeptide antibiotic used for treating infections caused by bacteria. As such, Surolan has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is prescribed for otic use in dogs, and you can buy Surolan online or from a pet pharmacy after consulting a veterinary doctor.
Side effects of Surolan
Dog owners are advised to take note of necessary precautions before they buy Surolan for their dogs. They must check the external ear canal of their pet and look for ruptures, especially tympanic membrane ruptures. If this is witnessed, they should consult the vet before administering the drug. Surolan must also not be given to a pregnant or nursing dog. Pet owners should always check the expiry date on the drug label before they buy Surolan. Administering expired Surolan can lead to severe side effects or complications. Surolan should not be administered orally and must be kept away from children.
The otic solution is available in Surolan 15ml, Surolan 30ml, and Surolan 100ml strengths. Each mL of Surolan contains polymyxin B sulfate 0.5293 mg, Miconazole nitrate 23 mg, and prednisolone acetate 5 mg. You need to shake the bottle well before using it and ensure that your pet’s ears are clean and dry before application. The recommended initial dose is 5 drops of Surolan 15ml twice a day. Once the drops have been administered, rub your pet’s ear gently. Continue this therapy for 7 consecutive days. If the infection persists even after regular administration, your vet may recommend another 7 day course using Surolan 30ml. Surolan 100ml is prescribed for dogs that suffer from severe cases of fungal or bacterial ear infections.
Surolan is not known to interact with any other pet medication, although it is recommended that you do not administer the drug to a dog suffering from perforated tympanum or pets that are hypersensitive to prednisolone acetate, miconazole nitrate, or polymyxin B sulfate. This otic solution should also not be used in tandem with drugs that can induce ototoxicity.
