Optimmune Opthalmic Ointment Description
Protect your pet’s eyes with Optimmune Opthalmic 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 Opthalmic 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 Opthalmic 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 and Warnings
Do not use Optimmune Opthalmic Ointment where there is a preexisting viral/fungal ocular infection. This ointment can temporarily blur your dog's vision so be sure to keep your pet still for several minutes after the application.
In some instances, Optimmune Opthalmic Ointment can cause irritation, redness, or spasms to the area around the eyes; these indications, however, are common in animals suffering from dry eye in general
Optimmune Opthalmic Ointment is not a cure for the above canine eye ailments, but regular use will help relieve symptoms and give comfort to your dog, particularly if treatment begins in the early stages of disease.

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 at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the tube properly capped.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by talulah what can you say about eye ointment-see below
For some reason, there seems to be a large air bubble in the middle of the tube. If you don't squeeze it UP before you open it, it just KEEPS COMING OUT OF THE TUBE, thereby wasting a lot of it....NOT COOL!!! It's expensive enough as it is, and then it just keeps coming out....hate that..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Asia8 Optimmune Opthalmic Ointment works GREAT!! Excellent product!!
My bullmastiff had severe issues in her eyes and she would just be miserable every day. She would have a lot of 'mucus' draining from her eyes and several times a day I needed to constantly clean her eyes to get the mucus out. She really tolerated my doing this and I am sure that has a lot to do with the pain of everything going on with both of her eyes. This product works great and I know my girl appreciates the treatments as well because she comes up to me every night and sits down and waits for me to complete her treatment. She is an amazing dog and this is an amazing product and the price is great compared to what the vet charges.
