Glaucoma can be painful, and if your pet is suffering, you want to ease their pain. Talk to your veterinarian about Timolol. Timolol treats open-angle glaucoma and secondary glaucoma. It is absorbed across the cornea into the front chamber of the eye and decreases the amount of aqueous humor the eye produces. This releases pressure in your pet's eyes and offers some relief-for you and your pet.
Do not use the medication in animals with known hypersensitivity to the drug or any other beta-blockers. Take extra care or if possible avoid using the medicine in animals with congestive heart diseases or respiratory complications. It is best to exclude cats with asthma or any other respiratory diseases from treating with the medication. Timolol Maleate has a tendency to interact when in certain combinations. In addition, ensure that the dropper tip is not exposed to any surface. Medication overdose can cause a drop down in the heart rate and bronchospasm.
Cases of medication related adverse reactions or toxicity in the animal is rare; however, there can be local irritation and miosis.
Side Effects & Warnings
Side effects while rare may include eye irritation and miosis. Do not use this medication in animals allergic to beta-blockers. Use with caution in cats with asthma. Use with caution in animals with COPD or congestive heart failure. Do not touch the eyelid or any part of the eye with the dropper.
Do not allow the dropper tip to touch any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper opening is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection of the eye.
