Entederm Ointment each ml contains:nystatin (100,000 units), neomycin sulfate equivalent to neomycin base (2.5 mg), thiostrepton (2,500 units), triamcinolone acetonide (1 mg).
The preparation is intended for local therapy in a variety of cutaneous disorders of dogs and cats; it is especially useful in disorders caused, complicated, or threatened by bacterial and/or candidal (monilial) infection.By virtue of its four active ingredients, Entederm Ointment provides four basic therapeutic effects: anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, antifungal and antibacterial. Triamcinolone acetonide is a potent synthetic corticosteroid providing rapid and prolonged symptomatic relief on topical administration. Inflammation, edema, and pruritis promptly subside, and lesions are permitted to heal. Nystatin is the first well-tolerated antifungal antibiotic of dependable efficacy for the treatment of cutaneous infections caused by Candida albicans (Monilia). Nystatin is fungistatic in vitro against a variety of yeast and yeast-like fungi including many fungi pathogenic to animals. No appreciable activity is exhibited against bacteria. Thiostrepton has a high order of activity against gram-positive organisms, including many which are resistant to other antibiotics; neomycin exerts antimicrobial action against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Together they provide comprehensive therapy against those organisms responsible for most superficial bacterial infections.
