Vetoquinol unveils new Flexadin products, launch of Simplera Otic Solution for dogs

Vetoquinol U.S.A. recently unveiled five new joint support products and the launch of Simplera Otic Solution for Dogs. 

Simplera Otic Solution It is the most affordable, single-dose treatment for canine otitis externa associated with susceptible strains of yeast (Malassezia pachydermatis) and bacteria (Staphylococcus pseudintermedius), according to a news release. The medication is FDA-approved as the first and only bioequivalent generic to Claro® (florfenicol, terbinafine, mometasone furoate) Otic Solution. 

Simplera Otic Solution

Ear infections are among the most common reasons pet owners seek veterinary care for their dogs, said Dr. Eric M. Alsup, DVM and general manager at Vetoquinol U.S.A. 

“Simplera is a leading-edge solution at an economical price, and it doesn’t rely on at-home treatment by clients,” he said. “This gives veterinarians the flexibility to treat effectively and affordably — while maximizing practice profitability and removing client compliance from the treatment equation.”

Simplera is effective for up to 30 days, giving pets lasting relief in just one dose using a combination of three active substances:

• Florfenicol, an antibacterial

• Terbinafine, an antifungal

• Mometasone furoate, a steroidal anti-inflammatory

Simplera was developed so that each antibacterial and antifungal works according to the indication. Each component was found to be compatible — and additive — in a study.

Simplera is made in North America, and Vetoquinol offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee available with its other quality generic medications like Vetprofen® (carprofen) and Imoxi™ (imidacloprid .+ moxidectin) Topical Solution.

New joint support products

The new Flexadin products are available as of Oct. 1 and include: 

• Flexadin Young Dog, a supplement for dogs from six months to two years old containing glucosamine. It is designed for active, younger animals and breeds prone to joint issues with eight ingredients to support joint health. 

• Flexadin Young Dog Mini, formulated for small-breed dogs from six months to two years old with glucosamine, creatine, Perna canaliculus (green-lipped mussel) and omega-3 fatty acids to help support joint health. 

• Flexadin Advanced for Cats has a cat-friendly shape and contains UC•II® for advanced joint support that can help slow cartilage loss. 

• Flexadin Adult Dog & Cat, formulated for pets more than two years old with advanced joint support containing UC-II®, which is clinically proven to be more effective than glucosamine and chondroitin.

• Flexadin Advanced Extra Strength with UC-II® offers once-a-day joint support for dogs and cats that is only available from a veterinarian. 

“As an industry, we’ve learned so much in the past 30 years,” said Vetoquinol’s Alsup. “Now, we know that glucosamine and chondroitin are ingredients that help maintain joint mobility in young dogs while older dogs may need advanced support under the care of a veterinarian. The full line of Flexadin products makes it easy to find a supplement that matches the needs of your pet.” 

Flexadin Advanced with UC-II® and Flexadin Plus will continue to be available to pet owners. Flexadin products can be purchased at veterinary clinics, authorized retailers, and
