Veterinarians prescribe Tobramycin and Dexamethasone (generic of Tobradex) eye drops for dogs and cats with bacterial eye infections. These antibiotic drops combine two active ingredients to treat the infection while reducing swelling.
Eye infections including conjunctivitis can cause pain, swelling, itching, and light sensitivity in dogs and cats. If your pet appears to have an eye infection or eye discomfort, talk to your veterinarian about prescription Tobramycin and Dexamethasone eye drops. These sterile drops fight infection in two ways. Tobramycin is an antibiotic that stops the growth of bacteria and the spread of the infection. Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that reduces the swelling associated with many infections. The bottle has a dropper top for convenient application.
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.
Tobramycin/ Dexamethasone Eye Drops are 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.
