Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution

If your dog or cat has conjunctivitis, keratitis, blepharitis or another bacterial eye infection, your pet's veterinarian may prescribe Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution to treat the infection and give your pet relief.

  • Prescribed for bacterial eye infections
  • For dogs and cats
  • Dropper top bottle makes eye drop application easy

 

Gentamicin, the active ingredient in these eye drops, is an aminoglycoside antibiotic, which inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause infection. Veterinarians prescribe sterile Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution for dogs and cats because it works quickly and effectively on a range of bacteria. The dropper top bottle on Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution makes it easy to apply the drops, but be sure not to touch the tip to any part of the eye.  Gentamicin Ophthalmic is also available in an ointment.

What you should know about Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution:

  • Talk to your pet's veterinarian before using this product.
  • Follow dosing directions exactly - don’t give your pet more medication than directed and don’t skip doses.
  • Read the label carefully for information about storage, possible side effects, and drug interactions.

 

For additional information about Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution, click the “More Information” and “Package Insert” tabs above.

 

Resistance is a major concern when giving antibiotics. Resistance occurs when bacteria survive and mutate and are then able to survive even after antibiotics are given. To help avoid any resistance, it is important to give antibiotics as they are prescribed for as long as they are prescribed even if your pet is looking and feeling better.

  • Q:

    My 2 1/2 year old Cocker Spaniel has cheery eye (right eye only) I used Garasone optic drops a year ago and it worked. however I just got back from being away for 3 weeks and it is back, will these drops work that same?
    Asked on 8/31/2014 by Alma from British Columbia, Canada

    1 answer

    • A:

      Cherry eye is a condition in animals in which the gland of the third eyelid falls down, protruding into the eye and appears red and swollen. The most commonly reported treatment is a veterinarian surgically stitching the gland back in place. Garasone is a combination product of a steroid: betamethasone, and an antibiotic: gentamicin. The steroid is intended to reduce swelling and irritation of the eye, while the antibiotic is intended to kill bacteria causing infection in the eye. These medications are usually useful in conjunctivitis or “pink eye.” It would be important to discuss with your pet’s veterinarian to confirm a diagnosis and chose appropriate treatment. It is also important to remember to never use expired or out-dated medications.

  • Q:

    Is this the exact same solution that is prescribed for people?
    Asked on 11/6/2013 by Ivy

    1 answer

    • A:

      Ivy,

      Gentamicin and many medications used in veterinary pharmacy are the same medications used in human pharmacy.  However, we do not dispense for human use, and can only accept prescriptions from licensed United States veterinarians.

  • Q:

    My chameleon has been fiddling with his eye lately. Some mornings i will find him struggling to open it. I've read multiple website suggesting this Gentamicin. Do you guys at VetRX suggest this is a possible solution.
    Asked on 11/4/2013 by Nick

    1 answer

    • A:

      Nick,

      Gentamicin is an option for certain types  of bacterial eye infections. It will require a veterinarian to determine whether the infection is from bacteria and that this medication is able to treat it. I recommend contacting your pet's veterinarian for his/her expertise in diagnosing the issue your chameleon is experiencing.

      Thank you,

We have 2 persian cats who develop "weepy" eyes as a result of allergies this time of year. These eye drops work well to clear up the problem and reduce sinus drainage.

Comments about Pacific Pharma Gentamicin Sulfate Ophthalmic Solution:

They work pretty good but my only problem was couldn't get my dog to stay still. My dog won't let me put the drops in his eyes I think cream version of it would be much better.
