Description

Latanoprost Ophthalmic Eye Drops to reduce the pressure in your dog's eye caused by primary glaucoma. Many dogs with glaucoma face partial or complete loss of vision due to the disease. Glaucoma causes the aqueous humor, the eye's normal fluid, to stop draining properly from the eye. The additional fluid puts pressure called Intraocular Pressure (IOP) on the eye that can damage the optic nerve and cause loss of vision. Latanoprost Ophthalmic is a prescription medication that can reverse that process. These eye drops, which are in a class of drugs called prostaglandin F2-alpha agonists, increase the amount of fluid flowing out of the eye, therefore reducing pressure in the eye. Often Latanoprost is prescribed when other ophthalmic treatments for glaucoma have failed.

Key Benefits

  • For treating primary glaucoma in dogs
  • Generic form of Xalatan
  • Reduces pressure in the eye
  • Dropper top bottle for easy application

How It Works

Latanoprost Ophthalmic Solution 0.005% 2.5 ml increases the volume of fluid drained from the eyes, reducing eye pressure.

Indications

Latanoprost is a prostaglandin F2α analogue indicated for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Directions

  • Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian.
  • If you have difficulty applying the medication, contact your veterinarian.
  • If discharge is present, the area should be cleansed with a sterile eyewash solution prior to applying the ointment or solution.
  • Shake the solution well before using.
  • Place one hand under and around your pet's chin and lift upward, so the pet's eyes are looking towards the ceiling.
  • Rest your other hand, holding the bottle, on top of the pet's head.
  • Be sure the tip of the bottle is pointed away from your pet's eye so if your pet jerks, the tip will not injure the eye.
  • Hold the bottle about one inch from the eye.
  • Squeeze the drops into the corner of the eye, taking care not to touch the dropper to the eye surface.
  • Continue to hold the head back for a moment while the drops disperse over the whole eye surface.
  • Never touch the tip dropper to the pet's eye, lids, or eyelashes.
  • Do not touch the inside of the cap or the dropper or tube tip with your fingers, as this will also contaminate the medication.
  • Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication.
  • If you are applying more than one medication to the eye, allow 5 minutes between applications so one medication is not washed out by the next.
  • Be sure not to interchange the caps of the medications.
  • Do not give more often than prescribed, or it may stop working.
  • If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give 2 doses at once.
  • This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

After using this medicine my dog's (Poco's) glaucoma pressure points went from 35, to 1st use 27, to second use 21, to third use 17 to last use 13 after four months. Normas is 10.

We will be treating her eyes for the rest of her life But, right now she is doing great.

Merchant Response:Glad to hear Poco is doing better. Thanks for the review.
