Zymox Otic with hydrocortisone is used for the treatment of acute and chronic otitis externa, an inflammation of the outer ear characterized by chronic swelling and pain in the outer part of the ears. Simply touching the ears of your pets can hurt them and can lead to aggression. Zymoc Otic is manufactured by PKB Animal Health, a well-known manufacturer of pet care and veterinary products. It provides quick relief for your pet and also eliminates the bacteria and fungi that caused the infection. It is safe to use as a long-term medication and is especially beneficial for persistent cases of otitis externa. Zymox Otic without hydrocortisone is also available, but it may not be effective for swollen or inflamed ears.
