Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't give this a second thought, this is unlikely to cause any adverse effects of any kind, you see the concentration of antibiotics in eye drops is very much less than the oral meds which are sometimes prescribed for dogs. In any case these drugs are not toxic to dogs so the chance are she will be just fine.

2. Given the above there are no special measures you need take. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that your pup's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
