About Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalmic 1% Suspension

Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalimic is used to treat common eye infections in dogs and cats, including mycobacterial or fungal infections. This product may also be used in eyes to aid the post-surgery healing process. A corticosteroid, prednisolone acetate regulates inflammation, which will help your pet's eye(s) heal, as well as ease your pet's comfort during the healing process. Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalimic is available by prescription only and must be administered directly into a pet's eye through a tapered nozzle tip. The veterinarian who prescribes the solution should dictate dosage -- typical dosages may involve administering drops every hour or two until symptoms subside.

  • Effective treatment for infections of the conjunctiva and cornea, and other eye conditions, in cases where steroid use is deemed necessary
  • Aids in the healing of corneal injuries, whether from chemical, radiation, or thermal burns, or other causes

How Does Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalmic 1% Suspension Work?
Prednisolone acetate is a glucocorticoid, which means it's a highly effective anti-inflammatory (more so than popular hydrocortisones, for example). Glucocorticoids inhibit a number of ocular functions in order to allow an infection or wound to properly heal. Glucocorticoids also prevent the formation of scars within the eye, thereby protecting vision.

  • Be sure to adhere closely to veterinarian prescription amounts.
  • This medication isn't typically prescribed for more than 10 days at a time.

  • Point the tip of the dropper away from your dog's eye in case he jerks his head.
  • For the first few minutes after administering the medication, don't allow your pet to rub her face or wipe the drops out.
