Customer Question

This morning I noticed my 4 year old boxer, Bruno has greenish - yellow discharge in both eyes. His eyelids look inflamed and the whites are red. It looks like he has pink eye! I have sulfacetamide sodium ophthalmic solution USP 10%. Can I use that for him?

Hello again Sorry to hear Bruno has this problem, but hopefully it is something minor, however I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. There is no reason why this sort of product { sulphonamide based ophthalmic solution } should not be used in dogs and it could well be effective in simple uncomplicated eye conditions such as conjunctivitis { Pink Eye } 2. You would normally put two or three drops in each affected eye four times a day for five days or so. 3. However eye conditions can quickly go wrong in a spectacular and irretrievable fashion, so if the condition does not quickly start to improve or if you note any deterioration then you should have Bruno's eyes checked over by a vet without delay.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
