Dosage and administration

This product is for topical administration. Shake the bottle well before use. At the beginning of treatment, hair surrounding or covering the lesions must be clipped; this should be repeated during treatment if necessary.

Ears

Clean the auditory canal and place a few drops of the product into the ear twice daily. For infections caused by Otodectes cynotis, instill five drops twice daily for 14 days. Massage the ear and the auditory canal gently but thoroughly to obtain optimum distribution.

Skin

Having ensured the area to be treated is clean, apply a few drops of the product (depending on lesion size) twice a day and rub well.

Treatment should be continued until a few days after complete disappearance of the clinical symptoms. In some obstinate cases, 2 to 3 weeks treatment may be necessary.

Where ear mite infestation is present, consideration should be given to treating both ears even if infestation is only apparent in one ear.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Do not use in animals with perforated ear drums since polymixin B is known to be a potential ototoxic agent.

Long term use of topical steroids may cause skin thinning and delay wound healing. Corticosteroids are not recommended for use in pregnant animals.

As Surolan is a prescription only medicine, treatment should be closely supervised by a veterinary practitioner. Due to likely variability (time, geographical) in the occurrence of resistance of bacteria for Polymyxin B, bacteriological sampling and susceptibility testing are recommended.

For external use only.

Overdose

No toxic side effects have been observed after accidental intake by licking.

Operator warnings

Do not handle the product if you are allergic to the ingredients in the product. Accidental spillage on the skin should be washed off immediately with soap and water. Wash hands after use. Corticosteroids may produce irreversible effects in the skin. They can be absorbed and may have harmful effects, especially with frequent and extensive contact or when used in pregnancy. Always wear single use disposable gloves when applying the product to animals.

Disposal

Any unused product or waste materials should be disposed of in accordance with national requirements.

For animal treatment only. Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
