Prednisolone Acetate is used to treat common eye infections in dogs and cats, including mycobacterial or fungal infections. This product may also be used in eyes to aid the post-surgery healing process. Prednisolone Acetate is a corticosteroid, which means that among other things, it regulates inflammation which will help your pet's eye(s) heal, as well as ease your pet's comfort during the healing process.

Prednisolone acetate contains the active ingredient prednisolone acetate (microfine suspension)

1.0% Preservative: benzalkonium chloride.

Prednisolone acetate is a topical anti-inflammatory agent used for managing swelling, itching, and redness of the eyes and eyelids in cats and dogs. It is a potent glucocorticoid, which could be used effectively for the inflammation of the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva, cornea and frontal globe.

Inactives: boric acid; edetate disodium; hypromellose; polysorbate 80; purified water; sodium bisulfite; sodium chloride; and sodium citrate.

Some of the common side effects of Prednisolone Acetate might include blurred vision, severe eye pain, irritation and discharge from the eyes. If overused, Prednisolone Acetate can have negative effects on your petโ€™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 isnโ€™t typically prescribed for more than 10 days at a time.

Sterility of the solution has to be strictly maintained and the dispenser should not come in contact with the eye. Extreme caution is called for, while administering this medication in pregnant pets or in those having a record of hypersensitivity specifically to this drug or corticosteroids in general. Never use Prednisolone acetate if there is any fungal ophthalmic infection.Extended application of this medicine might result in glaucoma, corneal and scleral thinning, damage to the optical nerve or posterior subcapsular cataract formation. It also paves the way for a host of secondary eye infections as it has immunosuppressive properties. If bacterial infection is present in the eyes, it should be managed prior to applying Prednisolone acetate as it lacks antimicrobial features. It might also cover up purulent infections of the eye, or worsen the severity of various ophthalmic viral infections such as herpes simplex. If the situation warrants the application of Prednisolone acetate for more than ten days, intraocular pressure needs to be monitored regularly. Post operative healing of cataract might be delayed with increased chances of bleb formation. If there is no marked improvement in the condition even after 48 hours of treatment the medication should be withdrawn.

Prednisolone Acetate is available by prescription only and must be administered directly into a petโ€™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 petโ€™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 dogโ€™s eye in case he jerks his head. For the first few minutes after administering the medication, donโ€™t allow your pet to rub her face or wipe the drops out.

Never use expired Prednisolone acetate. The recommended dosage would be one to two drops applied 3-4 times a day. Never stop the therapy abruptly as chances of relapse are high.

Store Prednisolone Acetate at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly capped.

Ask your veterinarian or consult with one of our pet care specialists at 1-800-844-1427 before giving your pet Prednisolone Acetate.
