Product Description

Dorzolamide can be a crucial medication in managing ocular hypertension in pets. Designed as an anti-glaucoma medication, it effectively tackles increased eye pressure, a common concern in various animals.

While primarily intended for human use, dorzolamide finds widespread off-label application in veterinary medicine, particularly in cats, dogs, and horses. Veterinarians may prescribe it to combat glaucoma, a condition characterized by elevated intraocular pressure.

Administering dorzolamide requires precision and adherence to veterinary instructions. Typically, the medication comes in liquid drop form and is applied directly to the affected eye. Before administration, it's crucial to wash hands thoroughly to prevent contamination.

  • Dosage and Timing Considerations -Dorzolamide should be administered at least 5 minutes apart from other eye medications to maximize efficacy. The onset of action is relatively swift, typically within 1 to 2 hours post-application. However, regular laboratory tests may be necessary to gauge its effectiveness accurately.

  • Managing Missed Doses and Side Effects -In case of a missed dose, administering it upon recollection is recommended. However, if the next dose is imminent, skipping and resuming the regular schedule is advisable. Like any medication, dorzolamide can elicit side effects ranging from mild to severe. Common reactions include a stinging sensation, eye inflammation, dry eyes, runny nose, nausea, and vomiting. On the other hand, serious side effects such as a cloudy or blue eye, difficulty breathing (indicative of an allergic reaction), fever, or skin rash warrant immediate veterinary attention.

  • Special Considerations and Monitoring -Dorzolamide demands cautious use in pets allergic to dorzolamide or sulfonamides. Furthermore, pets with underlying kidney disease or those who are pregnant or nursing require special consideration. Although no specific drug interactions have been identified, informing the veterinarian about all concurrent medications, including supplements and herbal therapies, is imperative. Regular eye pressure monitoring is essential to assess the medication's ongoing effectiveness. At-home vigilance for serious side effects complements this monitoring regimen.

Storage and Emergency Protocols - It should be stored at room temperature and shielded from moisture, sunlight, and freezing temperatures. In the event of an overdose or adverse reaction, prompt veterinary consultation is paramount.
