Offers practices a generic one-dose, veterinarian-administered ear infection treatment for dogs
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Sept. 28, 2022) – Vetoquinol USA announces the launch of Simplera® (florfenicol, terbinafine, mometasone furoate) Otic Solution for Dogs. It is the most affordable, single-dose treatment for canine otitis externa associated with susceptible strains of yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and bacteria (Staphylococcus pseudintermedius).1
Simplera is FDA-approved as the first and only bioequivalent generic to Claro® (florfenicol, terbinafine, mometasone furoate) Otic Solution.
“Ear infections are some of the most common reasons pet owners seek veterinary care for their dogs,”2 said Eric M. Alsup, DVM, General Manager, Vetoquinol USA. “Simplera is a leading-edge solution at an economical price, and it doesn’t rely on at-home treatment by clients. This gives veterinarians the flexibility to treat effectively and affordably — while maximizing practice profitability and removing client compliance from the treatment equation.”
Simplera is effective for up to 30 days, giving pets lasting relief in just one dose using a combination of three active substances:
- Florfenicol, an antibacterial
- Terbinafine, an antifungal
- Mometasone furoate, a steroidal anti-inflammatory
With Simplera, veterinarians are assured each antibacterial and antifungal works according to the indication. Each component was demonstrated to be compatible — and additive — in a study.3
Simplera is made in North America, and Vetoquinol offers the same 100% sastifaction guarantee available with its other quality generic medications like Vetprofen® (carprofen) and Imoxi™ (imidacloprid + moxidectin) Topical Solution.
Simplera® is indicated for the treatment of otitis externa in dogs associated with susceptible strains of yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and bacteria (Staphylococcus pseudintermedius).
