What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    • Before your cat or dog begins treatment with Animax Ointment, be sure to discuss the following with your veterinarian:
      • Any medications or supplements that you are administering to your pet
      • Your pet's allergies
      • Your pet's health problems
      • If your pet is pregnant or if there are any plans that your pet will become pregnant
      • If your pet is nursing
    • Before you place Animax Ointment into your pet's ear, inspect the ear canal well to be sure that the tympanic membrane is not damaged. This will help prevent damage to the cochlea or vestibular apparatus as well as prevent a middle ear infection from developing.

    Animax Ointment may cause side effects including elevated SAP and SGPT enzymes, diarrhea, vomiting, large volumes of urine, thirst, Cushing's syndrome, and temporary hearing loss. Contact your veterinarian right away if your pet develops worrisome or persistent side effects.
