Description

Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution is a sterile topical antibiotic solution for the treatment of corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, keratitis, and other susceptible bacterial infections of the eye in cats, dogs, and horses. The active ingredient, Ciprofloxacin, is a fluoroquinolone antibacterial that is active against a broad spectrum of gram-positive and gram-negative ocular pathogens.

Key Benefits

  • Kills bacteria in the eye including conjunctivitis
  • Safe for dogs and cats
  • Dropper top for easier dosing

How It Works

Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution is used to treat conjunctivitis as well as many other susceptible bacterial infections of the eye, including gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens that cause eye infection. It works by stopping bacteria from making DNA. This kills the bacteria and stops the infection.

Indications

Ciprofloxacin Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by susceptible strains of the designated microorganisms in the conditions listed below:

Corneal Ulcers:

  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Serratia marcescens*
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Staphylococcus epidermidis
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae
  • Streptococcus (Viridans Group)*

Conjunctivitis:

  • Haemophilus influenzae
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Staphylococcus epidermidis
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae

*Efficacy for this organism was studied in fewer than 10 infections.

Prescription Required

Directions

  • Use according to your veterinarian's instructions.
  • For Corneal Ulcers: The usual recommended dosage for corneal ulcers is two (2) drops into the affected eye every 15 minutes for the first six hours and then two (2) drops into the affected eye every 30 minutes for the remainder of the first day. On the second day, instill two drops in the affected eye hourly. On the third through the fourteenth days, place two drops in the affected eye every four hours. Treatment may be continued after 14 days if corneal re-epithelialization (wound healing) has not occurred.
  • For Bacterial Conjunctivitis: The usual recommended dosage for bacterial conjunctivitis is 1-2 drops instilled into the conjunctival sac(s) every 2 hours while awake for two days and 1-2 drops every 4 hours while awake for the next 5 days.

Tip: Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the surface of your pet's eye.

Only a few patients had a history of hypersensitivity reactions. Serious anaphylactic reactions require immediate emergency treatment with epinephrine and other resuscitation measures, including oxygen, intravenous fluids, intravenous antihistamines, corticosteroids, pressor amines and airway management, as clinically indicated.
