can i put ear cleaner and ear antibiotics in my dog's ear?

Dr. Altman :

Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.

Dr. Altman :

May I ask the name of both products?

Customer:

Ear cleaner is Epi-Otic by Virbac

Customer:

Antibiotic drops is Surolan otic drops

Dr. Altman :

OK thank you

Dr. Altman :

Please give me a moment to review the surolan...

Dr. Altman :

How long ago did you clean the ear?

Customer:

15 minutes ago

Dr. Altman :

I see no issues with following up with the surolan after a cleaner was used

Dr. Altman :

You can wipe out the ear with a cotton ball to remove any remaining debris of the ear cleaner but I use the ear cleaner every other day prior to application of these products regularly

Customer:

okay, that's great. thanks. Thought i remembered not to use together.

Dr. Altman :

Not that I know of and do not see any contraindications on the label

Dr. Altman :

In addition, some that require time in between applications is often ten minutes

Customer:

Okay, perhaps that's what i remembered. Thanks so much, will proceed with antibiotic drops. Have a good nite.
