Description

NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine Powder contains in each gram neomycin sulfate, 5 mg (equivalent to 3.5 mg neomycin); isoflupredone acetate, 1 mg; tetracaine hydrochloride, 5 mg; myristyl-gamma-picolinium chloride (as a preservative); and lactose hydrous. Because of the prompt, potent, and specific actions of the individual components, this combination is well suited for the treatment of certain ear and skin conditions occurring in dogs, cats and horses.

Key Benefits:

  • 3-way therapy provides an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and anesthetic effect.
    • Isoflupredone has potent anti-inflammatory action.
    • Neomycin has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity.
    • Tetracaine provides rapid, potent topical anesthesia that can reduce the possibility of self-inflicted trauma.
  • Prompt relief of symptoms.
  • Reduces further self-inflicted trauma.
  • Ease of application.
  • Adherent to moist surfaces.

How It Works

Neo-Predef:

  • Is a highly potent anti-inflammatory
  • Has a wide spectrum bactericidal effect provided by neomycin and a quick-acting anesthetic
  • Promptly relieves symptoms
  • Can be used after tail, claw, or dew claw amputation as a dusting powder
  • Can be used after castrating or ear trimming
  • Can be used as after surgical procedures, such as ovariohysterectomies (spays)
  • Reduces the chances of further self-inflicted trauma
  • Is easy to apply

Indications

NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine Topical Powder is indicated in the treatment or adjunctive therapy of certain ear and skin conditions-in dogs, cats and horses-caused by or associated with neomycin susceptible organisms and/or allergy. In addition, it is indicated as superficial dressing applied to minor cuts, wounds, lacerations and abrasions, and for postsurgical application where reduction of pain and inflammatory response is deemed desirable.

NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine may be used as a dusting powder following: amputation of tails, claws and dew-claws; ear trimming and castrating; and surgical procedures such as ovariohysterectomies.

Applied superficially, it has been used successfully in the treatment of acute otitis externa, acute moist dermatitis and interdigitial dermatitis in dogs, and as a dusting powder to various minor cuts, lacerations, and abrasions in the horse, cat and dog.

ADVANTAGES OF NEO-PREDEF WITH TETRACAINE

  1. Highly potent anti-inflammatory effect of isoflupredone acetate.
  2. Wide-spectrum bactericidal effect of neomycin.
  3. Rapid anesthetic effect of tetracaine.
  4. Prompt relief of symptoms.
  5. Reduces further self-inflicted trauma.
  6. Ease of application.
  7. Adherent to moist surfaces.

ISOFLUPREDONE ACETATE

Isoflupredone acetate markedly inhibits inflammatory reaction through its controlling influence on connective tissue and vascular components. Topically applied isoflupredone acetate is usually rapidly effective. In otitis externa, wounds of the concha, ulcerations of the ear flaps, and irritated lesions of the skin, the inflammatory response may also be effectively inhibited by isoflupredone acetate. Chronic conditions respond more slowly and relapses are more frequent.

NEOMYCIN

Neomycin is an antibiotic substance derived from cultures of the soil organism Streptomyces fradiae. Its antimicrobial range includes both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms commonly responsible for or associated with otic infections, such as staphylococci, streptococci, Escherichia coli.,Aerobacter aerogenes, and many strains of Proteus and Pseudomonas organisms. It is not active against fungi. Neomycin is unusually nontoxic for epithelial cells in tissue culture and is nonirritating in therapeutic concentrations. The presence of neomycin in NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine Powder affords control of neomycin-sensitive organisms.

TETRACAINE

Tetracaine hydrochloride is a topical anesthetic agent. The duration of anesthetic action of tetracaine exceeds that produced by either butacaine or phenacaine.

Many investigators have demonstrated that local anesthesia plays a significant part in the promotion of healing, especially where pain is a prominent factor. It is believed that trauma stimulates local pain receptors, which results in reflex vasodilation, edema, tenderness, and muscular spasm.

If the reflex is abolished through use of a local anesthetic such as tetracaine, amelioration of these tissue changes that interfere with healing is favored. The local anesthetic action of tetracaine has proved to be of great value in alleviating the pain reflex in painful skin and ear conditions.

Caution:

Federal (USA) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Warnings:

Not for human use. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.

Clinical and experimental data have demonstrated that corticosteroids administered orally or by injection to animals may induce the first stage of parturition if used during the last trimester of pregnancy and may precipitate premature parturition followed by dystocia, fetal death, retained placenta and metritis.

Additionally, corticosteroids administered to dogs, rabbits, and rodents during pregnancy have resulted in cleft palate in offspring. Corticosteroids administered to dogs during pregnancy have also resulted in other congenital anomalies, including deformed forelegs, phocomelia, and anasarca.

Precautions

Before instilling any medication into the ear, examine the external ear canal thoroughly to be certain the tympanic membrane is not ruptured in order to avoid the possibility of transmitting infection to the middle ear as well as damaging the cochlea or vestibular apparatus from prolonged contact. If hearing or vestibular dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment discontinue use of NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine Powder.

Incomplete response or exacerbation of corticosteroid-response lesions may be due to the presence of nonsusceptible organisms or to prolonged use of antibiotic-containing preparations resulting in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms, particularly Monilia. Thus, if improvement is not noted within two or three days, or if redness, irritation, or swelling persists or increases, the diagnosis should be redetermined and appropriate therapeutic measures initiated.

Storage:

Store in a dry place at controlled room temperature 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F).

FAQ

NEO-PREDEF with Tetracaine Powder is well suited for the treatment of certain ear and skin problems in dogs, cats and horses.

Features of Neo-Predef:

  • Treats acute otitis externa (swimmer's ear) in dogs
  • Treats acute moist dermatitis (hot spots or pyotraumatic dermatitis) in dogs
  • Treats interdigital dermatitis (scald) in dogs
  • Can be used as a dusting powder for many types of lacerations, abrasions, and minor cuts in dogs, cats, and horses

Neo-Predef:

  • Is a highly potent anti-inflammatory
  • Has a wide spectrum bactericidal effect provided by neomycin and a quick-acting anesthetic
  • Promptly relieves symptoms
  • Can be used after tail, claw, or dew claw amputation as a dusting powder
  • Can be used after castrating or ear trimming
  • Can be used as after surgical procedures, such as ovariohysterectomies (spays)
  • Reduces the chances of further self-inflicted trauma
  • Is easy to apply

Corticosteroids like Neo-Predef have been known to cause cleft palates in offspring of pregnant rodents and rabbits, and the following side effects in pregnant dogs:

  • Cleft palate
  • Deformed forelegs
  • Anasarca (swelling)
  • Phocomelia (seal limb)
  • Other types of congenital anomalies

A thorough examination of the external ear canal should be performed before injecting Neo-Predef into the ear. Rupture of the tympanic membrane (eardrum) could cause damage to the vestibular apparatus or cochlea. It could also cause an infection to be transmitted to the middle part of the ear due to prolonged contact.

Stop using Neo-Predef if vestibular or hearing dysfunction are observed.

Contact the closest emergency animal hospital.

Unethical.
September 20, 2023
Happy to take my order and fool me into believing they had the product by showing inventory available. Took my order, then sent a message saying they didn't have it and had no idea when they would have it.

Today, I get an email, A month later, that it has shipped. I don't even need it anymore. Drove 2 hours to get some for my dog that had to be treated more urgently than "we'll ship it when we can".

Anyway, i'll be refusing the package and not returning to this online store for anything.

My PBGV is prone to licking his feet to distraction, sometimes leaving patches that can turn raw. With only one or two applications of Neo-Predef, he's healed.
