Precautions

The use of Posatex Otic Suspension in dogs with perforated tympanic membranes has not been evaluated. The integrity of the tympanic membranes should be confirmed before administering this product.

Avoid prolonged or repeated use of Posatex Otic Suspension. Long-term use of topical otic corticosteroids has been associated with adrenocortical suppression and iatrogenic hyperadrenocorticism in dogs.

The safe use of Posatex Otic Suspension in dogs used for breeding purposes, during pregnancy or while lactating, has not been evaluated. The systemic administration of quinolones has been shown to produce cartilage erosions of weight bearing joints and other signs of arthropathy in immature animals of various species.
