SUROLAN (MICONAZOLE NITRATE/POLYMYXIN B/PREDNISOLONE ACETATE)

Surolan Description

Surolan is a prescription medication your veterinarian may recommend to treat your cat or dog for ear and skin infections caused by fungi or bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, M. gypseum, and Malassezia pachydermatis. The combination of active ingredients in Surolan helps eliminate the itching, pain, and infection before your pet causes more damage from shaking their head repeatedly and scratching their ears or other affected skin areas.

Try Surolan to Help Eliminate Ear and Skin Infections in Your Pets

Miconazole Nitrate is an antifungal medicine that works to eliminate ringworm in cats, yeast infections in dog’s ears; Polymyxin B is an antibiotic that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms; and Prednisolone Acetate is an adrenocortical steroid that helps to reduce inflammation.

Follow your veterinarian’s instructions on when and how to apply Surolan. Once absorbed into your pet’s skin cells, the three active ingredients work together to interfere with the production of a critical component fungi need for the cell membranes in order to grow; alters the structure of bacterial cell membranes to cause the contents to leak out while other substances seep in; suppresses the immune system by reducing lymphatic activity; and inhibits the influx of certain white blood cells that cause swelling and inflammation. Your pet finds relief and you have avoided a huge vet bill by attending to your pets’ needs before the infection became worse.

Conditions Treated by Surolan

Cats and dogs, especially outdoor ones, are prone to ear mites. If you notice your pet is scratching at their ears or shaking their head often, take a look inside their ears. What you may think is dirt, is actually mite excrement mixed with dead skin, wax, and other debris. Ear mites can cause much more damage than just setting up shop in your pets’ ear. As your cat or dog shakes its head over and over and scratches at the ears, the skin of the ear flap can actually separate and fill with blood. This is called an aural hematoma and it must be seen by a veterinarian before there is permanent damage caused.

Ringworm is a fungal infection that can spread to your entire family unless treated. You may notice small circular bald patches on your cat that do not appear to cause the pet any stress, but ringworm is highly contagious unless treated quickly and effectively while trying to keep the rest of your family from interacting closely until the infection has been taken care of. Surolan covers all the bases by treating fungal and bacterial infections while calming any inflammation.

Before You Apply Surolan

Once you receive the Rx for Surolan, you will be instructed on the proper way to apply Surolan whether it is in the ears or on the skin. Ask your veterinarian if Surolan is safe to apply if your pet is pregnant, may become pregnant, or is nursing. Discuss other health concerns you have and list any current medications, herbal remedies, and vitamin supplements you are administering to your pet to be sure Surolan is safe to use.

Proper Use of Surolan

Keep all medications out of reach of children and other pets. If your pet is able to lick the areas that have been treated with Miconazole Nitrate, Polymyxin B, and Prednisolone Acetate, you may have to use a ‘cone’ or pet collar to put on the pet to prevent this. Do not use Surolan on humans for ringworm or ear infections.
