This compounded formulation of Gentamicin 0.4 mg/0.2 Gm and Betamethasone 0.2 mg/0.2 Gm in a topical gel form is specifically designed for veterinary use. It is primarily indicated for the treatment of various skin conditions in animals, including dermatitis, pyoderma, otitis, wounds, and interdigital cysts.

Gentamicin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic, functions by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis, effectively combating the bacterial infections often associated with these conditions.

The gel is dispensed through a pump mechanism, which allows for easy and precise application on the skin. It is recommended to apply the gel to the affected area twice daily, or as directed by a veterinarian. The gel should be applied in a thin layer and gently rubbed into the skin until it is completely absorbed. It is important to avoid applying the gel to broken or irritated skin, and to prevent contact with the eyes, nose, and mouth.

While this formulation is generally well-tolerated, it is important to note that both Gentamicin and Betamethasone can cause local irritation and sensitization. If any signs of irritation or sensitization occur, it is recommended to discontinue use of the gel and contact a veterinarian. Additionally, Gentamicin has the potential to cause nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity, so patients should be closely monitored for signs of these adverse effects.
