Gentocin Durafilm is a prescription eye medication that contains gentamicin sulfate (antibiotic) and betamethasone (anti-inflammatory). If your dog has been diagnosed with an eye infection your veterinarian may prescribe a medicated eye drop like Gentocin Durafilm. Gentocin Durafilm is indicated to work against certain bacterial infections and help alleviate inflammation in the eye. It is especially designed to create a thin film over the eye for longer lasting treatment.
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.
