  • Effective against various types of dermatitis, including contact, seborrheic, and eczematous dermatitis
  • Helps prevent self-inflicted injury, delayed healing, and secondary infections by remedying symptoms
  • Easily applied topical ointment
  • Strong enough for once-daily or even once-weekly applications in many circumstances
  • Safe for multiple applications per day when needed

Read all directions and warnings provided by the manufacturer before use.

Follow the specifications of your veterinarian's prescription when using Panolog on your pet.


  1. For otic use, ensure the eardrum is intact. Clean the ear of wax and foreign matter. Instill 3 to 5 drops into the ear canal as prescribed.
  2. Drain infected anal glands or cysts, then fill with Panolog ointment.
  3. For use on the skin, clean and dry the affected site, removing any accumulation of crust. Apply a light covering of Panolog ointment.

Frequency of Use:

Frequency of use varies depending on the particular condition and its severity. Use ranges from once per week to 2 or 3 times per day. Frequency is often reduced as a condition shows improvement. Use exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian.


Keep out of reach of children and animals.

Store at room temperature, not exceeding 86 degrees F.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Neomycin, one of Panalog's four active ingredients, is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial that is effective against many gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Nystatin, another of the ointment's active ingredients, is a potent antifungal agent. Thiostrepton is included for its ability to eliminate many gram-positive bacteria, including some strains that are resistant to other antibiotics. Triamcinolone acetonide, the fourth active ingredient, is a powerful synthetic corticosteroid. It reduces inflammation and associated itching.


Keep Panolog out of reach of children and animals. Do not use or store in or near open flame or heat.

Panalog is only intended for use on cats and dogs. Do not apply to other species. Do not use on humans.

For topical use only.

Use only as prescribed.

CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Corticosteroids administered via oral and injected routes are known to cause complications in pregnant animals and their offspring.

Do not apply Panolog to abscesses, puncture wounds, or other deep infections. Not for use on serious burns.

Do not apply Panolog to an ear with a ruptured tympanic membrane.

Panolog, like other topical applications containing neomycin, should not be applied to areas producing pus.

Neomycin can cause localized redness, swelling, and inflammation. If a reaction persists, stop applying Panolog and consult your veterinarian.

Panolog is generally well tolerated, but individual sensitivities may result following use. Discuss any adverse reactions in your pet with your veterinarian.

Topical corticosteroid use for the treatment of otitis externa can cause impaired hearing, typically transient. If Panolog affects your pet's ability to hear, stop use and contact your veterinarian.

SAP and SGPT (ALT) enzyme elevations, diarrhea (sometimes with blood in the feces), emesis, and increased thirst or hunger have been caused in dogs by parenteral or systemic administration of synthetic corticosteroids. Prolonged or repeated use has also caused Cushing's syndrome in dogs.

A systemic reaction to topical use of corticosteroids is unlikely, but corticosteroids may be absorbed through the skin, resulting in systemic reactions. If you observe increased hunger, thirst, or weight gain in your pet during treatment with Panolog, contact your veterinarian right away.

Seek immediate medical attention in the event of accidental ingestion.
