Tresaderm® solution is a dermatologic topical treatment for certain skin and ear inflammations on dogs and cats caused by bacteria and fungus. Both acute and chronic forms of these skin disorders, including ringworm, respond to treatment. Tresaderm® for dogs and cats contains a corticosteroid, antifungal, and a broad-spectrum antibiotic. Active ingredients are Thiabendazole, Dexamethasone, and Neomycin.
Before treating the ear canal, remove wax secretions, foreign materials, and crust, which may be associated with dermatoses affecting other parts of the body. The container nozzle safely allows partial insertion into the ear canal, enabling administration of Tresaderm® as ear drops. The amount to apply and the frequency of treatment are dependent upon the severity and extent of the lesions.
In treating dermatoses affecting areas other than the ear, the surface of the lesions should be well moistened (2 to 4 drops per square inch) with Tresaderm® twice daily. The volume required is dependent upon the size of the lesion. Follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian.
Disposal of Unused Prescription Medications
- Return unwanted or unused medications to Revival Animal Health in person, or visit www.disposemymeds.org to find a pharmacy near you.
- A secondary method of drug disposal is to remove the unwanted medication from any wrappers or containers and place it in a plastic bag with moist coffee grounds or cat litter. This can be disposed of in the regular garbage collection.
- Please do NOT dispose of unwanted meds down the drain or toilet, as this may eventually find its way into the human water supply.

Disposal of Medical Sharps
- When you're finished with the syringe and needle, do not try to recap, remove, bend or break the needle. This is where most injuries occur.
- Dispose the syringe and needle immediately in a nearby sharps container. All sharps must be deposited in a puncture-proof container. Make sure your storage location is child and animal proof.
- As with all product handling, make sure you wash your hands after handling medical sharps.
Disposal of Sharps Container
- When your sharps container is half-full, sift dry Portland Cement throughout the sharps. Fill the container with water, and rotate until the cement is mixed and the sharps have been distributed throughout the cement mixture. Let cement dry for 24 hours.
- Seal the lid of the container tightly and use duct tape to seal. Label the container "Livestock Sharps" to properly identify the contents.
- Dispose of the containers in accordance with your state's regulations.

On rare occasions dogs may be sensitive to neomycin. In these animals, application of the drug will result in erythema of the treated area, which may last 24 to 48 hours. Also, evidence of transient discomfort has been noted in some dogs when the drug was applied to fissured or denuded areas. The expression of pain may last 2 to 5 minutes.
If signs of salt and water retention or potassium excretion are noticed (increased thirst, weakness, lethargy, oliguria, gastrointestinal disturbances or tachycardia), discontinue treatment and contact your veterinarian.
