Glaucoma, a disease of the eye, can affect cats and dogs, causing increased pressure within the eye that can lead to pain and eventual blindness if left untreated. Timolol Maleate Eye Drops is a prescription ophthalmic solution designed specifically for dogs and cats to manage and prevent glaucoma by reducing fluid production within the eye.

  • Usage -Veterinarians prescribe Timolol Eye Drops to treat existing glaucoma cases in pets or prevent its occurrence in those at risk. By helping to reduce the pressure within the eye associated with glaucoma, these drops alleviate discomfort and protect against further vision loss. The dropper top bottle ensures easy and precise application, with approximately 20 drops per milliliter in the solution. Store the product at room temperature, away from moisture and sunlight to maintain efficacy. Duration of use may vary for dogs and cats; consult the veterinarian for guidance on usage duration.

  • Potential Problems -It is crucial not to use Timolol Eye Drops if the solution changes color, becomes cloudy, or contains particles, as this may indicate contamination or degradation of the medication. While generally well-tolerated, some pets may experience mild side effects such as burning, stinging, irritation, or eye redness. Additionally, Timolol may temporarily alter pupil size, which the prescribing veterinarian should monitor.

  • Administration Tips -Proper administration techniques are essential to prevent eye drops from contamination. It's advisable to wait at least five minutes after applying Timolol before administering other eye medications to ensure optimal absorption and effectiveness.

  • Ingredients -The active ingredient in Timolol Eye Drops is Timolol Maleate, a beta-blocker that reduces eye pressure by decreasing fluid production and blocking certain eye fluids' production. Timolol Eye Drops are sold as an FDA-approved generic drug, and the brand may vary from order to order. The brand availability cannot be guaranteed.

Glaucoma can be painful, and if your pet is suffering, you want to ease their pain. Talk to your veterinarian about Timolol. Timolol treats open-angle glaucoma and secondary glaucoma. It is absorbed across the cornea into the front chamber of the eye and decreases the amount of aqueous humor the eye produces. This releases pressure in your pet's eyes and offers some relief for you and your pet.

Do not use the medication in animals with known hypersensitivity to the drug or any other beta-blockers. Take extra care or if possible avoid using the medicine in animals with congestive heart diseases or respiratory complications. It is best to exclude cats with asthma or any other respiratory diseases from treating with the medication. Timolol Maleate has a tendency to interact when in certain combinations. In addition, ensure that the dropper tip is not exposed to any surface. Medication overdose can cause a drop down in the heart rate and bronchospasm.

Cases of medication related adverse reactions or toxicity in the animal is rare; however, there can be local irritation and miosis.

Eye injury treatment

We have used Timolol Opthalmic Solution on two cats with serious eye injuries. The first cat did not respond to ointment but TOS over an extended period was affect. Second cat is progressing nicely . . . but I find eye treatment is not a quick-fix and treatment may require 6 weeks, or longer . . . in my opinion.*This is a prescription item
