Protect your pet's eyes with Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment. One of the most common eye ailments facing dogs is dry eye (scientifically known as Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca or KCS). Dogs suffering from KCS experience dry, red, and itchy eyes due to their inability to produce enough tears to keep their eyes moist.
The active ingredient in Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment modifies your dog's immune response to correct and reduce symptoms of KCS, as well as to treat Chronic Superficial Keratosis, an inflammation of the cornea. Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment is FDA-approved and treats dry eye' without causing system toxicity. It is also preservative-free and thus has little chance of causing secondary or chemical infections in your pet.
Side Effects & Warnings
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: For ophthalmic use in dogs only. The safety of OPTIMMUNE® has not been determined in cases of preexisting viral or fungal ocular infections, nor in puppies, pregnant bitches, or dogs used for breeding. In clinical trials, ocular and periocular inflammatory reactions, transient hyperemia, epiphora, mild discomfort of the eye and mild alopecia were reported in a small number of treated dogs. For full prescribing information, including directions for use, precautions and adverse reactions, see Package Insert.
Cyclosporine opthalmic oiuntment (Cyclosporine) is indicated for the treatment of keratoconjunctivits sicca (KCS or “dry eye”) and chronic superficial keratitis (pannus) in dogs. Keratoconjunctivits sicca is a condition in which insufficient tears are produced. Keratitis refers to the growth of a film across the surface of the eyes and this condition is commonly observed in German Shepherd breed of dogs. It is also used for the treatment of anal furunculosis - an immune mediated skin disease affecting the skin around anus.
Cyclosporine ophthalmic ointment is FDA approved for use in dogs. The standard dosage is to apply a ¼ inch strip of ointment to the affected eye(s) twice a day. While administering, the ointment may be placed directly on the cornea or into the conjunctival sac. Make sure to remove debris from the eyes using non-irritating solution before the application of the ointment.
Before use, remove any debris from your dog’s eye, then apply a ¼ inch strip of ointment to the cornea near the lower eyelid. This treatment is for chronic eye problems, and will most likely need to be administered on a regular basis.
