So would you discontinue the Restasis medication and just use the optimmune for now.?
My dog ususally wipes off the optimmune so I had not been using it as much. I will start using it again.
How long should I use this before seeing an improvement if any ? I am suppose to see the Vet. again on Tuesday. Also is there anything else to do if this doesn't work and do you think that the scratch on the eye caused the tear ducts to dry out. His eyes were always had plenty of water in them before this happened.
The Vet. I thought said that the drops Prednisolone Acetate was another name for Restasis. I might have misunderstood her. My yorkie is on the drops Prednisolone Acetate and the optimmune. These meds were given to me this last Tues. He was suppose to take the drops twice daily of the Prednisolon and the optimmune tube(small amount covering the eyelid twice daily. I stopped the optimmune tube application due to my dog whipping it off. But since I have talked to you I am using the optimmune on him again. My question is: Do you think he needs both of these meds and how long do you think they will take to work on him? Also do you have any ideas that would help us in keeping the ointment on his eyes?
