Canaural Dosage and administration
Where appropriate prior to administration the ear canal and the surrounding area should be cleaned mechanically or by irrigation taking care to avoid further damage to the skin. Any excess exudate hair or debris should be carefully removed prior to the application of the ear drops. Animal owners should only do this on the direction of the prescribing veterinary surgeon. Shake the bottle well before use. Instil 5-10 drops of Canaural into the ear according to the size of the animal and ear canal twice daily. Without allowing the animal to shake its head very gently massage the ear canal after administration holding the pinna in an upright position to ensure penetration of the drops into the ear. Where ear mite infection is present consideration should be given to treating both ears even if infection is apparent in only one. Treatment with Canaural should continue for at least 3 weeks to ensure that successive generations of ear mites are killed. Animals that are in contact should also be treated. Where treatment is for a period longer than 7 days regular clinical re-evaluation should be carried out. Where Gram negative infections are involved the use of the product should be based on bacterial sensitivity testing. In cases where the treatment period is prolonged in vitro sensitivity should be re-evaluated. Advice on correct administration: Official national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when Canaural is used.
