All antibiotic eye drops and ointments do require a prescription. In order for a product to be available over-the-counter, it must be labeled so a pet owner will be able to use the product in a manner that will not cause harm to an animal. This may include harm caused by a delay in seeing the veterinarian for a condition that progresses to a much more serious state. The type of medical condition for which this product is intended to be used for will also determine prescription verses over-the-counter status. Eye infections can be viral as well as bacterial and may be the result of another problem requiring a different treatment. Improper treatment or delay in treatment can lead to more serious complications such as changes to or loss of vision. Proper diagnosis will determine the correct treatment for the best possible outcome for your dog.
