What is I-DEFENSE VET for Dogs and Cats?

  • I-DEFENSE VET is a long-lasting, lubricating ointment for dogs and cats with severe dry eyes.

  •  It provides superior hydration and protection of the eye. 

  • I-DEFENSE VET is uniquely formulated to have prolonged contact-time with the eye surface, so your dog or cat receives continuous, long-lasting relief. 

Why is I-DEFENSE VET used for dogs and cats?

  • This ointment provides soothing relief from soreness, irritation, dryness, or inflammation associated with dry eye.

  •  I-DEFENSE VET is ideal for providing hydration to animals that suffer from severe dry eyes and nocturnal lagophthalmos, which is the inability to fully close the eyes during sleep.

  •  It contains sodium hyaluronan (HA). Hyaluronan is a natural biopolymer that provides long-lasting lubrication and hydration for the eyes and the cornea.

  •  Hyaluronan may help reduce evaporation of the tear film while acting as a barrier against moisture loss.

What else should I know about I-DEFENSE VET?

  •  I-DEFENSE VET is recommended to be used at night but can be used during the day as well. 

  • I-DEFENSE VET comes in a sterile tube. In order to keep the tip of the tube and the contents sterile, it is recommended that I-DEFENSE VET be dropped into the eye, without touching the cornea or surrounding tissues.

  •  It is most effective when used at night while the animal is asleep, to allow for the ointment to remain on the cornea longer. 

  • I-DEFENSE VET should be used within 8 weeks of opening.

  •  Store away from direct heat, in a cool, dry place at a temperature ranging from 9°C to 25°C (48°F to 77° F).

  • Do not use I-DEFENSE® VET on more than one companion animal.

What problems could by dog or cat have with I-DEFENSE VET?

  • When used during the day, the animal may experience some blurring of their vision.

  • In case of ocular irritation, stop using I-DEFENSE VET ointment and consult your veterinarian for advice.

  • After application, your companion animal may experience a foreign body sensation which passes after several blinks.

  • Do not use I-DEFENSE VET in case of known hypersensitivity or allergy to any of the components.

  •  If you are using any other eye drops or ointments, leave about fifteen minutes between each application. It is recommended that you use I-DEFENSE® VET last.

  • Do not use I-DEFENSE® VET in case of ocular lesions or active infection.

How do you use I-DEFENSE VET?

  • Wash your hands well before you use I-DEFENSE® VET.

  • When initially opening I-DEFENSE® VET, do not use the first delivery of the ointment which may be aqueous. Gently squeeze the tube until the ointment begins to come out.

  • Tilt the head of your companion animal up slightly and pull the lower lid of its eye downwards, to form a pouch.

  • Hold the tube vertical to the eye.

  • Press the tube gently to release a small quantity of the product on the eye (preferably at night). Repeat this process for the other eye.

  • If an additional application is required, apply a small quantity of the ointment every 3-4 hours, or according to your veterinarian’s instructions.

  • Please ensure that the tip of the tube does not touch anything, including the animal’s eye or your fingers.

  • Close the cap tightly after use.
