what is a non prescription alternative to tresaderm for a labrador retriever with a fungal ear condition?
Hello and thanks for researching your question!

Tresaderm (by Merial Animal Health) is a prescription medication containing an antifungal drug, a steroid drug and an antibiotic drug.

Strictly speaking, there are no over-the-counter equivalents, since these particular drugs are monitored by the government and approved for prescription use only.

Many pet supply stores do carry this cleaning-and-treatment product for over-the-counter use:

Since over-the-counter treatments are not as strong as prescription products, do be sure to have your dog's ear(s) examined if she does not show significant improvement within the first 2-3 days of use.

If you need additional support at this time, please "REPLY" below. I hope she feels better soon!
