Ectoin® has successfully proven its efficacy in various medical applications for human use. The cellular protection and inflammation reduction characteristics of Ectoin® can also be used to treat epithelial dysfunctions in man’s best friends: horses, dogs, cats and small animals.

These animals often have problems with their skin, eyes and ears. Skin irritations and eczema can appear after intensive licking of the paws or due to allergic reactions from insect bites or feed. Eye irritations such as burning, redness and itching are 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-cleansing 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 relief from these discomforts. Within the animal health sector, bitop adheres to its principles to offer natural products free from potentially irritating substances, such as cortisones, emulsifiers, preservatives, perfumes and dyes.
