Description

Gentocin Durafilm is an ophthalmic solution meant for the treatment of external eye infections and inflammation in dogs. It can also be used for the management of some cases of pigmentary keratitis (discoloration of the surface of the eye) and pannus (inflammation of the cornea causing opacification). Gentocin Durafilm is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

Three powerful reasons to treat canine bacterial eye infections with Gentocin Durafilm

  • Gentocin Sulfate A broad-spectrum antibiotic with highly effective results against gram-positive bacterial and gram-negative bacterial infections of the eye.
  • Bethamethasone Acetate A rapid-acting anti-inflammatory corticosteroid that provides symptomatic relief from bacterial, allergic, or traumatic tissue responses.
  • Durafilm An aqueous colloidal solution that coats the conjuctiva to maintain extended contact with the active, therapeutic ingredients

A proven performer that goes on like a drop... coats like an ointment

  • Prolonged contact, efficacy, and safety
  • Unique formulation with a history of success
  • Supports treatment and compliance

Key Benefits

  • Treats eye infections
  • Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory
  • Easy-to-apply dropper bottle

How It Works

Gentocin Durafilm contains gentamicin sulfate, which is a highly effective topical treatment in primary and secondary bacterial infections of the eye and surrounding tissues. It works by inhibiting the growth of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Gentocin Durafilm also contains betamethasone acetate, which provides anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-rheumatic effects. It helps control excessive tissue reaction to infections, allergens, and trauma.

Indications

Gentocin Durafilm Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the treatment of external eye infections and inflammation in dogs.

Clinical reports indicate it is useful for the management of some cases of pigmentary keratitis and pannus. Temporary remission of some of the pathological lesions of the aforementioned conditions have been noted following therapy with GENTOCIN DURAFILM Ophthalmic Solution.

Directions

The topical application of Gentocin Durafilm Ophthalmic Solution should, in each instance, be administered to meet the specific needs of the individual case. One or two drops of the solution may be instilled into the conjunctival sac three or four times a day. Thereafter, the frequency of the dosage may be reduced but care should be taken not to discontinue therapy prematurely. In chronic conditions, withdrawal of treatment should be carried out by gradually decreasing the frequency of application.

Caution:

Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Contraindications:

Corticosteroids are contraindicated in initial treatment of corneal ulcers.

Gentocin Durafilm Ophthalmic Solution is contraindicated in ocular conditions where there is deep ulceration without vascularization and in conditions of viral origin before healing has commenced.

Warnings:

Not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. Clinical and experimental data have demonstrated that corticosteroids administered orally or parenterally to animals may induce the first stage of parturition when administered during the last trimester of pregnancy and may precipitate premature parturition followed by dystocia, fetal death, retained placenta, and metritis.

Additionally, corticosteroids administered to dogs, rabbits, and rodents during pregnancy have produced cleft palate. Other congenital anomalies including deformed forelegs, phocomelia, and anasarca have been reported in offspring of dogs which received corticosteroids during pregnancy.

Precautions:

The antibiotic sensitivity of the infective organism in bacterial conjunctivitis should be determined prior to the use of this preparation. The preparation is contraindicated in the case of nonsusceptible microorganisms. In deep-seated infections or when systemic infection threatens, specific systemic antibiotic or sulfonamide therapy should be employed.

Extended use of topical corticosteroids may cause increased intraocular pressure in susceptible patients. In prolonged therapy, it is advisable to measure intraocular pressure. In human medicine, in diseases that cause thinning of the cornea, perforation has been known to have occurred with the use of topical steroids.

Use of corticosteroids, depending on dose, duration, and specific steroid, may result in inhibition of endogenous steroid production following drug withdrawal. In patients presently receiving or recently withdrawn from systemic corticosteroid treatments, therapy with a rapidly acting corticosteroid should be considered in especially stressful situations.

Storage:

Store between 2° and 25°C (36° and 77°F).

FAQ

Gentocin Durafilm requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is indicated for the treatment of external eye infections and inflammation in dogs as well as other conditions of the eye. Appropriate monitoring of bacterial response to topical antibiotic therapy should accompany the use of Gentocin Durafilm. Cushing's syndrome in dogs has been reported in association with prolonged or repeated steroid therapy.
If your pet has a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients within Gentocin Durafilm, tell your veterinarian. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant, breeding, or lactating.
Gentocin Durafilm should be applied directly to the conjunctival sac (under the eyelid). Do not touch the tip of the dropper bottle to the eye or any other surface to avoid contamination. Generally, Gentocin Durafilm should be applied 3 or 4 times a day, 1 to 2 drops each time. When used for chronic conditions, withdrawal of treatment should be done by gradually decreasing the frequency of application.
Potential side effects of Gentocin Durafilm can include polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyuria (excessive urination), vomiting, and diarrhea (occasionally bloody).
Give the next dose as soon as you remember. If it is close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume a normal dosing schedule. Do not give a double dose.
If an overdose is suspected, call your veterinarian.
Avoid giving to pregnant, breeding, or lactating dogs or dogs with a known hypersensitivity to the ingredients in Gentocin Durafilm.
Corticosteroids may interact with Gentocin Durafilm. Talk to your vet before giving your pet other medications.
