Cautions:

Before using B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given other eye ointments or eye medications. Sensitivity is rare, however if a reaction occurs, discontinue use. As with any antibiotic preparation, prolonged use may result in the overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms, including fungi. Appropriate measures should be taken if this occurs. If infection does not respond to treatment in two or three days, the diagnosis and therapy should be re-evaluated. If your pet has swelling of the face or itching, or appears to have difficulty breathing, contact your veterinarian immediately. Care should be taken not to contaminate the applicator tip of the tube during application. Do not allow the applicator tip to come in contact with any tissue. Do not use this product as a pre-surgical ocular lubricant. Adverse reactions of ocular irritation and corneal ulceration have been reported in association with such use. Serious hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported in cats within 4 hours of application of antibiotic ophthalmic preparations. Some of these reactions have resulted in death.

Contraindications:

Neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment is contraindicated in thoseindividuals who have shown hypersensitivity to any of its components.

Warnings:

Not for Injection into the Eye

Neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment should never be directlyintroduced into the anterior chamber of the eye. Ophthalmic ointments may retard corneal wound healing.

Topical antibiotics, particularly neomycin sulfate, may cause cutaneous sensitization. A preciseincidence of hypersensitivity reactions (primarily skin rash) due to topical antibiotics is not known. Themanifestations of sensitization to topical antibiotics are usually itching, reddening, and edema of the conjunctiva and eyelid. A sensitization reaction may manifest simply as a failure to heal. During long-term use of topical antibiotic products, periodic examination for such signs is advisable, and the patientshould be told to discontinue the product if they are observed. Symptoms usually subside quickly onwithdrawing the medication. Application of products containing these ingredients should be avoided forthe patient thereafter (see Precautions, General).

Precautions:

General

As with other antibiotic preparations, prolonged use of neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates andbacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment may result in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms includingfungi. If superinfection occurs, appropriate measures should be initiated.

Bacterial resistance to neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment mayalso develop. If purulent discharge, inflammation, or pain becomes aggravated, the patient shoulddiscontinue use of the medication and consult a physician.

There have been reports of bacterial keratitis associated with the use of topical ophthalmic products inmultiple-dose containers which have been inadvertently contaminated by patients, most of whom had aconcurrent corneal disease or a disruption of the ocular epithelial surface (see Precautions, Information for Patients).

Allergic cross-reactions may occur which could prevent the use of any or all of the followingantibiotics for the treatment of future infections: kanamycin, paromomycin, streptomycin, and possiblygentamicin.

Storage:

Store at 59°-77 °F., away from moisture and heat, away from moisture and heat. Keep the tube properly capped.

FAQ

B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic is FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs and cats. It is a prescription medication available as a sterile eye ointment. The sterile ointment is usually applied as a thin film to the eye 3 or 4 times a day. It is used in the treatment of superficial bacterial infections of the eyelid and conjunctiva in dogs and cats when due to organisms susceptible to the antibiotics contained in the ointment. Laboratory tests should be conducted including in vitro culturing and susceptibility tests on samples collected prior to treatment. Contact your veterinarian if your pet's symptoms begin to get worse or if you do not see any improvement to your pet's condition after a few days. Do not touch the tube opening to any surface, including eyes and hands. The tube opening is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.
Bacitracin, Neomycin and Polymyxin B are antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections. Each gram contains Bacitracin Zinc 400 units, Neomycin Sulfate 5 mg (equivalent to 3.5 mg of Neomycin base), Polymyxin B Sulfate 10,000 units in a base of white petrolatum and Mineral Oil. The three antibiotics (bacitracin-neomycin-polymyxin) provide a broad spectrum of activity against the gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria commonly involved in superficial infections of the eyelid and conjunctiva. Bacitracin is effective against gram-positive bacteria including hemolytic and nonhemolytic streptococci and staphylococci. Resistant strains rarely develop. Neomycin is effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including staphylococci, Escherichia coli and Haemophilus influenzae and many strains of Proteus and Pseudomonas. Polymyxin B is bactericidal to gram-negative bacteria especially Pseudomonas. No resistant strains have been found to develop in vivo.
