This medication is also prescribed for birds, rabbits, and other pets. 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.
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. To learn what pet parents think about Gentamicin Ophthalmic Solution, click the “Reviews” tab 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.
Gentamicin is sold as an FDA approved generic drug. Brand varies from order to order and variation to variation. VetRxDirect is unable to guarantee which brand will be available at the time of order shipment.
