I have relied on the regular Zymox for years. It is an effective, easy and inexpensive way to treat the ear infections that plague dogs. Although, in my experience, less is definitely more, I decided to try this product, Zymox Plus due to its promise to end recurrent ear infections.

My brother has a large and goofy german shepherd. He has suffered from chronic ear infections since he was rescued from the pound. He responded to regular zymox. After months, he again had an ear infection. My brother, not a natural solsutions type of guy, took him to the vet. He was prescribed an antibiotic ointment. He seemed to improve a little but then he got much, much worse. He again took him to the vet and got a different antibiotic. didn't get better. This back and forth went on for a month with no resoslution to the problem. It seemed that the two different bacterias were alternating. I finally purchased this product. Wow, what a difference. It cleared up the infection in both ears in a week, with major improvement seen within a day. Even better, the dog has been infection free for over six months.

Zymox Plus contains four more enzymes than regualar Zymox (which contains three). It is about ten or eleven dollars more expensive. Like the tregular formulation, it is applied directly into the dog's uncleaned ear. The ear is then gently massaged. I have found that if the dog's ear is very sore, the massaging is not necessary. He will just shake his head. As the infection clears, it becomes less sensitive to touch and massage can be performed.

If your dog tends to have chronic infections, this product is worth the investment. It is easy to use no side effectives and most importantly, it works.

I have been using Zymox Otic for over 11 years for my dogs. I do dog rescue and have had at least 50 foster dogs and my own adopted dogs that had bacterial or fungal infected ears. I have tried the vet's recommended Oti-Max, etc and the only product I would ever use in my dog or cat's ears in Zymox. It is a natural product that is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral.
I recommend using 1 -2 drops in the ear once a day for 10 days. If the ear is swollen, red and gooey, then I would use 2 drops twice a day for 14 days.

The Zymox Otic-HC does have hydrocortisone in it which helps reduce the swelling and inflammation. If your dog has a mild case of ear infection/fungal infection and you do not want to use the hydrocortisone, then you may prefer the Zymox with the green label as it works well, but does not have the hydrocortisone.

Be sure and read the instructions as they tell you to NOT use ear cleaner or other ear products while using Zymox. The ingredients in the other products will interfere with the Zymox ingredients. I prefer to use the Zymox only as other cleaners will burn since they have alcohol in the product and I don't want my dog to have more pain.

I have also used Zymox for other fungal skin infections on my dogs. I rescued a few dogs who had fungus between their toes or up inside the pads of their feet. So I used a few drops of Zymox and rubbed it into the skin. Since the Zymox is a thick gel, it was easy to use and cleared up the fungal infection within a few days.

I even used Zymox on my ears after a dive trip and I came home with an ear infection. It was cleared up in 5 days, but I used the drops for 7 days.

After countless trips to the vet... trying numerous ear medications, without success, my vet recommended Zymox. Zymox really works! My dog's ears have never been without infection until Zymox plus! I found amazon.com to be the best place to purchase Zymox plus.

Our pets have had chronic ear infections as far back as I can remember. Our latest bout was one of the worst & after a couple of applications of Zymox Plus no more problems. If she does start the head-shaking & itching, one application is all it takes to relieve the symptoms. This stuff is incredible! I only wish I'd known about it all along. Even the Vets proprietary solutions never worked this well or as quickly. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Also, forgot to mention how easy it is to use - just apply to ear canal, cover w/ cotton ball, massage at base of ear & remove cotton ball - That's it! Like I said - Incredible!

I have 2 beagles that are a couple of "dirt bags"! They constantly were getting yeast and bacterial ear infections and the junk that would come out of their ears was awful. After hundreds of dollars in various cleaners, antibiotics and vet visits I was so fed up. The stuff they had me wash their ears with smelled horrible and discolored their fur - and they hated it. Terrible treatments twice a day for weeks. Then, I tried Zymox plus - I got a bottle for each dog so I wouldn't spread something between them by accident. This product is incredible - noticable difference after one application. I hadn't even used anything for 2 weeks and last night I cleaned their ears - nothing - absolutely spotless - no odor - no debris - this product is a miracle. I'll never use anything else on the kids again.

My dog suffered from chronic ear infections for 8 years and a hematoma from constant scratching and flapping her ears (2 surgeries). She would be back at the vet within two weeks after finishing her antibiotics. We tried everything - antibiotics, steroids, ear washes, medicated wipes, and hypoallergenic diet and nothing worked. After reading the reviews we decided to try this product. Instead of bringing her for more antibiotics, we tried Zymox Plus. It not only cleared her infection, but her ears have been perfect ever since. No black waxy, smelly ears anymore. As the sceptical vet said, "you can't argue with results", I didn't review this product right away because I didn't know if the results would last, but my dogs ears look great. I can't recommend a better product!!!!

My black lab has been plagued with ear infections his entire life. We've easily spent over $5k in antibiotics, ear washes, steroids and special diets over those 8 years. This stuff produced immediate results after the second day. He has had 9 daily treatments and I think there's enough in the bottle for at least 14 uses.

You can tell the dog is much more at ease. He has become more expressive with his ears, doesn't smell like cheese and loves getting his ears rubbed. Prior to the Zymox, he guarded his ears due to pain and the dread of ear cleanings. One of the great things about it's application is that it isn't as invasive as past solutions. I put in my pocket for a while to get it up to body temperature, and he no longer hides when he sees a white bottle and cotton swabs.

This isn't a long-term fix, but gets things under control for a regimen of other, less expensive "maintenance" cleaning products. Zymox makes a bottle of weekly earwash that is around $10 bucks for 4oz. There is also a proven homemade solution that contains medicinal boric acid, alcohol, iodine and glycerin.

I'm really impressed with this product. It has drastically improved my dog's outlook for comfort and health.

My vet prescribed this ear medication and charged more than twice what I paid when I ordered it from Amazon. It is a very effective ear medication and I would highly recommend it for dogs with ear infections.
