How to apply Visiocare?
Vision care Ointment (Cyclosporine) is the cream that should be applied externally only. Remember that this medicine is for use on dogs and at no instance should be used to treat any condition in human patients. It comes in a new, large 5-gram tube as an ointment and here’s the instruction on how to apply it.
- Clean your dog’s eyes for any dirt and leave it to dry naturally.
- Squeeze a small amount of the cream from the tube to your fingertip.
- Gently apply the ointment to the affected eye of your dog forming a thin layer of the cream.
This should be done twice a day or every 12 hours. Always wear protective gloves and take extra care to prevent the spread of the cream to other unaffected areas.
Your veterinarian will determine the best dosage for your dog. They will consider how severe the dog’s eye condition is, its health and history and also what other medicinal drugs have been prescribed to the dog. How the dog responds to treatments is also crucial and allows for alterations of the dosage. Do not use another dog’s prescription for a similar condition on your pet or prescribed a dosage for the dog.
Once the tube of Vision care ointment has been opened, it should only be used within a month. Always check that the cream is not expired before applying it to your dog’s eyes. In most cases, it will take some few weeks for results to be noticeable. Do not use this medicine unless it has been prescribed for your dog by your vet.
