Veterinarians prescribe Tobramycin and Dexamethasone eye drops for dogs and cats with bacterial eye infections. These antibiotic drops combine two active ingredients to treat the infection while reducing swelling.
Eye infections including conjunctivitis can cause pain, swelling, itching, and light sensitivity in dogs and cats. If your pet appears to have an eye infection or eye discomfort, talk to your veterinarian about prescription Tobramycin and Dexamethasone eye drops. These sterile drops fight infection in two ways. Tobramycin is an antibiotic that stops the growth of bacteria and the spread of the infection. Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that reduces the swelling associated with many infections. The bottle has a dropper top for convenient application.

Q:Can Tobramycin eye drops cause nausea and diarrhea in dogs?
A:The combination of two drugs, tobramycin an aminoglycoside antibiotic and dexamethasone a corticosteroid, is a human-labeled eye medication. This combination is used in the treatment of bacterial eye infections that also involve inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissue. The most common adverse effects with this combination medication are burning, irritation, swelling and redness of the eye and surrounding tissue. An increase in light sensitivity has also been observed, as the tobramycin can cause eye dilation. As this ophthalmic combination medication is for topical use only, the development of nausea and diarrhea is not a known adverse effect. It is recommended that you contact your veterinarian with any questions regarding the development of nausea and diarrhea while your pet is on this medication.
