Reviews for OptixCare Eye Lube for Animals, 25 gm (1017992)
Great for my cat!
Diego, my 12 year old male cat, has a chronic herpes virus that manifests as dry eye. I used to use an eye wash followed by artificial tears. Then my vet recommended OptixCare Eye Lube instead of the tears. Each treatment lasts much longer and easy to administer. You really only need a tiny amount in each eye.
One word of caution. The nozzle of the tube is fairly narrow and pointed, so take care when bringing it near your pet's eyes, especially if they tend to wiggle around during treatments.
My vet ophthalmologist recommended this
My 11 yr. old pug had trauma to one eye and glaucoma in other with dry eye in both. Since most eye drops last only 20 minutes, this lube lasts for 2 hours and is the most practical and comfortable for her. I have been using for 4 years and no problems, easy to apply and does the job.
OptixCare Eye Lube for Animals
My 9 year old pug has had several corneal abrasions since she was young and has developed keratitis and keratconjunctivitis. Her sleeping with her eyes open (and the fact that pugs sleep most of the day) has caused her to have constant dry, red, and sore eyes. I used to buy the OpticCare at her optometrist and it would cost so much money but she had to have it. Because of the price I would use it very sparingly and hinder the protection she needed to maintain her eye sight. I found VetDepot and was amazed at the price. This product is even a little thicker than sold by the vet and it stays on her eyeballs better, it all stays and doesn't run out. My dog can see again and isn't running into things like she used to.
Perfect as backup for artificial tears
My aging Shih Tzu has chronic eye problems - which I keep under control by dedication to keeping her eyes gob-free, keeping the hair around here eyes trimmed, using artificial tears and (when that fails) using a bit of this. She's doing fine. I figure Vet Depot products are saving me hundreds on vet bills and I have a happy dog. (I am so grateful I found this site; not just for the prices, but for the priceless feedback of other dedicated pet owners.)
Seems to help.
OptixCare Eye Lube seemed to help my pet's eyes.
OptixCare is a great and really helpful lubricant for my Pugs dry eyes. The price was double at the eye doctor I took Rudy to.
