Product Description

Flurbiprofen is an ophthalmic solution used on pets to treat certain inflammation, itchiness, or eye redness. The eye treatment solution is easy to administer and can be applied to dogs and cats. Use the simple eye-dropper to quickly treat your dog's or cat's inflamed eye, and you will see a marked reduction of eye redness.


Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Solution works to counteract the substance that causes painful eye inflammation, called uveitis. These eye drops are effective in relieving redness and irritation. They are non-steroidal eye drops and can improve the side effects of uveitis, which include redness, itching, and puffiness. It's time to give your pet a soothing escape from the painful irritation of uveitis eye inflammation and treat their red, itchy eyes with a proven Flurbiprofen ophthalmic solution.


Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Solution for pets belongs to the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) class. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit the activity of cyclooxygenase enzymes, particularly COX-1 and COX-2, which are involved in synthesizing prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are signaling molecules that play a central role in the inflammatory process. By inhibiting these enzymes, Flurbiprofen reduces the production of prostaglandins, thereby exerting its anti-inflammatory effects.


In the context of cataract surgery, Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Solution is prescribed to mitigate the inflammatory response associated with surgical trauma. Cataract surgery involves the removal of the cloudy lens from the eye, and postoperative inflammation is a common concern. Flurbiprofen helps control this inflammation, promoting a more comfortable recovery for the pet and aiding in the healing process.


Corneal ulcers, which are defects in the outermost layer of the eye, can be particularly painful for pets. Flurbiprofen's anti-inflammatory properties are crucial in managing the inflammatory response associated with corneal ulcers, contributing to pain relief and the healing of the cornea.


In cases of eye infections, Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Solution aims to reduce inflammation in the infected tissues. Inflammation is a hallmark of the body's immune response to infection, and by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, Flurbiprofen helps modulate the immune response and alleviate associated symptoms.


Regarding tear stains, excessive tearing in pets can lead to fur staining around the eyes. Flurbiprofen helps manage tear production by addressing the underlying inflammation, offering a solution to the aesthetic concern of tear stains, and promoting ocular comfort.


Flurbiprofen can cause numerous side effects. These can include gastrointestinal issues, kidney problems, and, in rare cases, adverse effects on blood clotting. Regular veterinary monitoring and adherence to prescribed dosages are essential to ensure the safety and efficacy of Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Solution for pets.


This drug should not be prescribed in case of glaucoma. If the pet experiences pressure within the eye, careful monitoring must be done during administration. Flurbiprofen has the tendency to interact with various other medications. Consult a veterinarian to determine if the pet is taking other drugs that might interact with flurbiprofen.


Always consult a veterinarian before administering Flurbiprofen to your dog or cat. If your pet has active uveitis, administer drops 2-3 times daily. If your pet struggles with chronic uveitis, administer drops 1-2 times daily. Even if your pet's symptoms subside, it's important that you follow through with the entire length of the prescribed treatment plan.

Side Effects & Warnings

Flurbiprofen can cause extreme side effects in some animals. The drug should not be administered to animals that have hypersensitivity or allergy to the drug, or to any of the topical or systemic NSAIDs. Flurbiprofen should not be prescribed to pets that are suffering from eye hemorrhage or defects associated with systemic clotting. The medicine has the possibility to increase bleeding tendencies during eye surgery when it is used before operation. Besides, Flurbiprofen delays the healing of wounds and should be completely avoided in case of corneal ulceration. The drug should be used with extreme caution during the active wound-healing phase subsequent to eye surgery. 

Keep out of reach of children. Not for use in pets with glaucoma. Will cause a decrease in pupil size. Talk to your vet if your pet experiences any unusual symptoms. Be sure to inform your vet of any medications your pet is taking.
