Ectoin® already proved its efficacy successfully in various medical devices for human use. The cell-protective and inflammation-reducing characteristics of Ectoin® can also be used to treat epithelial dysfunctions in man’s best friends: horses, dogs, cats and guinea pigs.

These animals often have problems with their skin, eyes and ears. Skin irritations and eczema appear after intensive licking of the paws or in case of allergic reactions after insect bites or towards feed. Eye irritations such as burning, redness and itching are very common discomforts for animals and need to be treated directly, to avoid further damage and infection of the eyes. The ears of dogs and cats need to be kept clean, because – in contrast to humans - they do not have a self-cleaning function.

Irritations and itching occur when dirt and cerumen stick in the ears and the animals start scratching. bitop's products “Ectoin® Vet Cream”, “Ectoin® Vet Eye Drops” and “Ectoin® Vet Ear Spray” offer effective and gentle relieve from these discomforts. Within the animal health sector, bitop remains with its principles to offer products free from potentially irritating substances, such as cortisones, emulsifiers, preservatives, perfumes and dyes.
