Neo/Poly/Dex Ophthalmic Suspension Description
Neo Poly Dex Ophthalimic Suspension is a highly effective and fast acting prescription medication for cats or dogs, used to treat eye problems. Neo Poly Dex Ophthalimic Suspension may be used to treat a variety of eye conditions including but not limited allergies, ulcers, scratches, corneal conditions, non-ulcerative keratitis and palpebral and bulbar conjunctivitis. The medicine may come in drops or as a more viscous ointment, depending on your preference and your doctor’s recommendation. Neo Poly Dex Ophthalimic Suspension treats eye infections and injuries with a combination of antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory steroids. (Steroids are commonly used to help eyes heal.) Results are typically seen within 48 hours of administering the first dose.
This medicine should not be given to cats that have the herpes virus.
Neo Poly Dex Ophthalimic Suspension is the generic form of Maxitrol.

Always seek the advice of your veterinarian or other qualified professional with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard or delay seeking professional advice due to what you may have read on our website. Our medications are FDA approved and/or EPA regulated when and as required by law.
Store this product at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly closed.
When applying ointments, place one hand under and around your pet’s chin and lift
upward, so the pet’s eyes are looking towards the ceiling. Pull down gently on the lower lid with a finger or thumb, depending upon which eye you are treating. Rest your other hand on top of the pet’s head. Be sure the tip of the tube is pointed away from your pet’s eye so if your pet jerks, the tube tip will not injure the eye. Hold the tube of ointment about one inch from the eye and apply a short ribbon of ointment along the inner edge of the lower lid, starting at the inside corner of the eye. Rotate the tube when you reach the outer portion of the eye to help detach the ointment from the tube. Have your pet blink, and gently hold the eyelid shut. Gently massage the closed eyelid to disperse the ointment. Ointments will blur your animal’s vision for a few minutes after administration. Prevent your pet from bumping into things and becoming injured.
If using eye drops,shake the suspension well before using. Follow the directions above, but squeeze the drops into the corner of the eye, taking care not to touch the sterile dropper to the eye surface. Continue to hold the head back for a moment while the drops disperse over the whole eye surface. Never touch the tip of the tube or dropper to the pet’s eye, lids, or eyelashes. Do not touch the inside of the cap or the dropper or tube tip with your fingers, as this will also contaminate the medication.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smileytwin Outperforms all other types of eye drops tried.
Eye drop is working well for my 7 year old female pug who has allergies and dry eyes causing continuous gooks and redness and irritation. One time a day is all it takes to keep her eyes clear and tears flowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Franklin14 Drops prescribed by vet for chronic non-infectious conjunctivitis.
This product is easy and convenient to use, does not require refrigeration, but is a prescription-only med. The only quibble I have is with the vet's original recommendation that it be used only once a day (which was not good enough to resolve my doggie's problem). When I addressed the issue with the vet again, I was told that it could be used 2-3X a day (every 8 to 12 hr). Using it twice a day only has been enough to address the issue.

my doctor prescribes this medication for one of my dogs...he takes three medications. unfortunately I can only get one from you (have to order the other two from different places)...but overall the use of the prescription and availability is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer excellent product
I have been using this product for a couple of years on my Newfoundland's eyes. According to his vet he will need medication for the rest of his life and this has kept his eye infection from worsening and requiring a much more expensive medicine.
