I-DEFENSE VET for Dogs and Cats - Night Time Use Hyaluronate Eye Ointment for Severe Dry Eye

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. 

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

 

I-DEFENSE VET Recommendations 

I-DEFENSE VET is recommended to be used at night but can be used during the day as well. When used during the day, the animal may experience some blurring of their vision. 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 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.

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

 

I-DEFENSE VET Directions for Use

  • 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.
