We moved to France last November and shortly afterwards our English Cocker Spaniel exhibited symptoms which the local vet diagnosed as 'dry eye' and prescribed Optimmune. This has dealt very well with the problem but on ordering the next tube last week I was told that the Laboratoire in question had ceased production and no information was available regarding its re introduction!
Has there been a problem with this item and is it possible to use anything else.
Can you possibly shed some light as we are very concerned and the Vet in question does not seem to have any info re the cream and has suggested an injection.
Why has the cream been discontinued if it is such an effective remedy and what are the implications of ceasing use?
What should we do to safeguard our beloved Spaniel?
Please can you help!
I feel that the Vet is good but the language barrier may be partly to blame and I am very concerned.
Many thanks for your kind assistance.
Optimmune has been discontinued. I do not know why. We have it compounded at our practice. Some vets use a pill called Atopica. I do not know if you can get this med in France. vetcare
