If Zymox is Great, is Zyox Plus Greater?
on September 12, 2012
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.
