What is Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic used for dogs?

Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic is a medication commonly used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of eye infections in dogs. It is an ophthalmic (eye) ointment or solution that combines three active ingredients: neomycin sulfate, polymyxin B sulfate, and dexamethasone. Neomycin sulfate is an antibiotic that belongs to the aminoglycoside class. Neomycin works by inhibiting the growth and killing bacteria that may be causing the eye infection. Polymyxin B sulfate is also an antibiotic, specifically a polypeptide antibiotic. Polymyxin B disrupts the bacterial cell membrane, causing leakage and ultimately leading to the death of susceptible bacteria. Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid with potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Dexamethasone helps to reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling in the eye, providing relief from the discomfort associated with the infection. By combining these three active ingredients, Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic offers a broad-spectrum effect against various bacteria that commonly cause eye infections in dogs. It is typically prescribed by veterinarians to treat conditions such as conjunctivitis (pink eye), keratitis (corneal inflammation), blepharitis (eyelid inflammation), and other bacterial infections of the eye.

Is Neo-Poly-Dex safe for dogs?

Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic is generally considered safe for use in dogs when used as directed by a veterinarian. However, as with any medication, there are potential risks and considerations to keep in mind. Some dogs may be allergic or hypersensitive to one or more of the active ingredients in Neo-Poly-Dex. Signs of an allergic reaction may include swelling, redness, itching, or difficulty breathing. If any signs of an allergic reaction occur, discontinue use and consult a veterinarian immediately. Dogs with certain pre-existing conditions, such as glaucoma or corneal ulcers, may require alternative treatments or adjusted dosages. It is important to inform the veterinarian about any existing health issues or medications your dog is currently taking. Long-term or excessive use of corticosteroids like dexamethasone (one of the ingredients in Neo-Poly-Dex) can lead to side effects such as increased intraocular pressure, delayed wound healing, or the development of secondary infections.

How many drops of Neo-Poly-Dex can I give my dog?

The specific dosage and administration instructions for Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic in dogs can vary depending on the individual dog's condition, the severity of the infection, and the veterinarian's assessment. Typically, Neo-Poly-Dex ophthalmic is applied as drops directly into the affected eye(s) of the dog. The veterinarian will provide you with the recommended number of drops per application and the frequency of application.

How often can you use Neo-Poly-Dex eye drops in dogs?

The frequency of use for Neo-Poly-Dex eye drops in dogs can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the veterinarian's instructions. In most cases, the typical recommendation is to administer the eye drops two to four times per day. However, it's best to follow your veterinarian's instructions precisely, as they will provide the most accurate guidance based on your dog's specific needs and condition.

How serious is conjunctivitis in dogs?

Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the thin tissue that covers the inner surface of the eyelids and the white part of the eye. While conjunctivitis in dogs is generally not considered life-threatening, it can cause discomfort and potentially lead to more severe complications if left untreated. The severity of conjunctivitis can vary depending on the underlying cause and the dog's overall health. Common causes of conjunctivitis in dogs include bacterial or viral infections, allergies, foreign objects in the eye, irritants, or underlying conditions such as dry eye or entropion.

Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic Suspension is generally used in the treatment of severe conjunctivitis, nonulcerative keratitis and different kinds of harmful corneal conditions in dogs and cats. Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic is a potent combination of the antibiotics; neomycin and polymyxin B, and the anti-inflammatory steroid, Dexamethasone in a methylcellulose base. The drug is mainly used by veterinarians to treat susceptible eye infections including inflammatory conditions of palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea, and anterior segment of the globe; chronic anterior uveitis, corneal injury from chemical radiation, ulcers, scratches, and allergies.ย 

Side effects are uncommon with this drug. Some cats may experience an anaphylactic reaction. If your cat appears to be wheezing or choking, call the vet immediately. Prolonged use may cause another bacterial infection, so follow the instructions and do not administer the drug past the prescribed date. Results should be evident within the first 48 hours.

Certain precautions must be taken while or prior to administering the medicine to the pet. Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic Suspension must not be given to animals that are allergic to its ingredients. The medication should not be prescribed for cats possibly suffering from herpes virus infection. If there is no improvement in the condition of the pet within 48 hours or if the condition deteriorates further, do consult a veterinarian. While applying the medicine, do not touch the applicator tip of the bottle or tube to the eye or skin to prevent the medicine from getting contaminated.ย 

If combining this drug with other topical eye treatments, wait at least five minutes before adding any other drops to your petโ€™s eye.

Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic is a prescription medication, which is generally available as suspension drops and ointment. The drops are often applied to the eye of the pet every two to four hours. Shake well before administering the drops. Though unlikely, in case of an overdose of the medicine, immediately contact a veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.ย 

When applying ointments, place one hand under and around your petโ€™s chin and lift upward, so the petโ€™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 petโ€™s head. Be sure the tip of the tube is pointed away from your petโ€™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 animalโ€™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 petโ€™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.

Store this product at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly closed.

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 e1 causing continuous gooks and redness and irritation. One time a day is all it takes to keep her e1 clear and tears flowing.

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.

excellent product

I have been using this product for a couple of years on my Newfoundland's e1. 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.
