Side Effects and Warnings
If overused, Prednisolone Acetate can have negative effects on your pet’s vision. Do not use Prednisolone Acetate if your pet has a bacterial, viral or fungal infection without also using proper anti-infective treatment. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating before giving them Prednisolone Acetate. Be sure to adhere closely to veterinarian prescription amounts. This medication isn’t typically prescribed for more than 10 days at a time.
Store Prednisolone Acetate at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly capped.
Prednisolone Acetate is available by prescription only and must be administered directly into a pet’s eye through a tapered nozzle tip. The veterinarian who prescribes the solution should dictate dosage; typical dosages may involve administering drops up to every hour or two until symptoms subside.
With clean hands, gently cradle your pet’s face, and encourage their face toward the ceiling. Using the control-drip nozzle, drip the recommended dosage into the affected eye(s). Point the tip of the dropper away from your dog’s eye in case he jerks his head. For the first few minutes after administering the medication, don’t allow your pet to rub her face or wipe the drops out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobthedog Works for my dog
My vet was unable to get this product from their suppliers. I was having to use an ointment that was much harder to give to the dog. My dog has been on this medication since he was 6 months and now is almost 14 years old.
This product is in drop form and much easier for the dog and me! to administer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bandn Great price and fast turn-around.
I always worry when I need to send the paper prescription for my dogs eye drops that it will take a long time. The pharmacy turn-around time was very quick and delivery was fast. The price was the lowest I could find anywhere, half of what my vet was charging for the exact same medication.

Our one dog had hereditary cataract surgery at only 5 months and has been on these eyes drops ever since. Your price is a great savings to us over what vets were charging!! Look forward to buying them from you for many more years!

I have a 12 year old basset hound who has glaucoma, and with daily use of Prednisolone his eye pressure levels are well under control. Ask your Vet if this is right for your pet as well.
