Ophthalmic Solutions & Ointments

Atropine is a prescription pet medication that is used as a mydriatic to dilate the pupils and as a cycloplegic to help control pain associated with corneal or uveal disease.

Atropine Sulfate dilates your pet's pupils prior to eye examinations. It may also be used to control pain associated with uveal and corneal disease, cataract surgery, eye injury, and other conditions. The medication works quickly and is available as an ointment and as an injectable solution.

Benefits of Atropine Sulfate:

  • Reduces pain after eye injury or cataract surgery
  • Helps in the treatment of glaucoma
  • Controls pain caused by corneal and uveal disease
  • Dilates the pupils to enable eye examinations
  • Well tolerated when used as directed

Use Atropine only as directed by your veterinarian.

Use cautiously on dogs with primary glaucoma.

Protect animals from sunlight and bright light during and after use.

Ointment Directions:

  1. Apply Atropine ointment 1 to 3 times daily to treat mild to moderate ulcers of the cornea and anterior uveitis.
  2. Follow your veterinarian's recommendation regarding dosage when using to dilate the pupils.

Solution Directions:

  1. Give cattle 30 mg per 100 lbs. of body weight in split administrations daily. Inject 1/4 to 1/3 of the dose intravenously, and administer the remainder subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
  2. Give horses 6.5 mg per 100 lbs. of body weight in split administrations daily. Inject 1/4 to 1/3 of the dose intravenously, and administer the remainder subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
  3. Give sheep 50 mg per 100 lbs. of body weight in split administrations daily. Inject 1/4 to 1/3 of the dose intravenously, and administer the remainder subcutaneously or intramuscularly.
  4. Dose based on individual response once symptoms are under control.

Frequency of Use:

Frequency of use depends on the desired degree of dilation and the responsiveness of your pet's iris. Generally, the more inflammation present in the eye, the more resistant it is to dilation. Do not administer more than once daily to dogs and cats.

Storage:

Store Atropine Ointment at controlled room temperature, between 59 and 86 degrees F. Keep away from children and animals.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Atropine Sulfate is an anti-muscarinic and works by blocking receptors in the eye muscles that are involved in controlling the shape of the lens and the size of the pupils. Blocking these receptors causes pupil dilation and prevents the eye from accommodating for near vision.
