Enrofloxacin and silver sulfadiazine are antibiotics used in combination for the treatment of susceptible bacterial ear infections in dogs. Silver sulfadiazine also has some activity against fungi, such as yeast. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, hearing loss, vestibular (balance) disorders, or increased redness of the ear while being treated with enrofloxacin/silver sulfadiazine. A veterinary exam of the ear is necessary prior to using this product. It should not be used in animals with a perforated eardrum. People with hypersensitivities (allergies) to other quinolone antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin or norfloxacin should not handle the medication, since a photosensitivity reaction could occur just from contact. In case of contact with human skin, wash skin with soap and water, and contact your physician if any redness or irritation occurs.

Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
