Comprehensive Guide to Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment

Meet pet's eye superhero: Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment!

Neomycin, Polymyxin B Sulfates, and Bacitracin Zinc (Neo Poly Bac) Ophthalmic Ointment are FDA-approved and a prescription-only medication that treats and prevents bacterial eye infections and inflammation in both dogs and cats. The sterile ophthalmic ointment is applied to the pet's eye(s) three to four times a day.

How does Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment work?

Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment includes three active (and antibiotic) ingredients - Neomycin Sulfate, Polymyxin B Sulfate, and Bacitracin Zinc. It also contains hydrocortisone. The combination of antibiotic and steroid medicines is used to treat eye inflammation caused by uveitis, eye injury, radiation, chemical burns, etc.

The three antibiotics work to stop the growth of bacteria. Neomycin is a pharmacological antibiotic that reduces the risk of skin infections. Polymyxin B Sulfate is a bacteriacide. Bacitracin Zinc kills germs. Hydrocortisone is an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid that reduces swelling.

How is Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment administered?

Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment is an ointment, with 3.5 g of ointment in every applicator tube, that is administered to the lower lid three to four times a day. Here is an easier way to apply the ointment.

First, comfort your pet by being soothing and patient. Speak gently or rub the top of their head with one hand before applying the ophthalmic ointment. This makes it a better experience for both of you and is essential for a prompt recovery.

Position one of your hand's thumb and index finger on the ointment tube. The other hand should be placed under your pet's chin/jaw to stabilize the head and the thumb should pull down on the chosen eye's lower lid.

Make sure that the tube's tip is pointed away and is at least one inch away from your pet's eye so if the pet jerks, it doesn't scratch or injure the eye. When placed on the lower lid, the warmth of the eyeball will melt and spread the ointment's medicine.

Note: Wait 10 minutes before any other medication may be administered.

Which pets should not be prescribed Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment?
  • Any pets that are allergic to any ingredient or aminoglycoside antibiotics

  • Any pets that are pregnant or nursing

  • Any pets that have a viral or fungal infection in the eye

  • Cats with possible chances of a herpes infection

Other eye medications, oral steroids, and a large list of drugs that may negatively interact with Neo Poly Bac Ophthalmic Ointment, including prednisone and oxycodone.

Ensure that you are transparent with your veterinarian and pharmacist.
