Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
In most cases, veterinarians use the human ophthalmic antibiotic drops and ointments in our patients; these products aren't specially made for dogs or cats since the human varieties work quite well for the most part.
Gentaminin is one such medication which would be safe to use in Toes and is one which I frequently dispense for my patients.
The dose would be a small amount of ointment 3-4 times a day for approximately 7-10 days (or a little longer, if necessary). If the eyes look more red or inflamed the drug is started, then Toes may be having a drug reaction and it should be discontinued.
I hope this helps to reassure you about use of this product for him. Deb
