What is Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment?

B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment is a sterile ointment that is used to topically treat eye infections. B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:
  • Successfully treats bacterial infections of the eye
  • Works on a wide variety of bacteria
How it Works:

B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment contains bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin B. This combination of antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections caused by various bacteria. We also carry B.N.P with Hydrocortisone Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment, which contains the added hydrocortisone ingredient.

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.

What is the most important information I should know about B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment:

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.

What is B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment:

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.

Keep the tube properly capped.

What happens if I miss applying a dose:

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet:

An overdose of this medication is unlikely. If an overdose is suspected, wash the eye with water and seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. If the ointment is ingested have the pet drink plenty of water and contact a veterinary emergency center for advice.

Q&A

My dog has an eye allergy. He always gets it in may. What over the counter med can I use for him

My dog has crusty green discharge

Green discharge from both eyes if not clean daily it builds up to a crust around the eye. Will this help. Or can you recommend a antibiotic?
Asked by: Laika
the lubricant will help to comfort dry eyes but you need a veterinarian to prescribe an anti biotic eye ointment or drops. The discharge indicates probable infection. There are no antbiotic products over the counter. Please speak to your vet. We carry B.N.P OINTMENT which is a possible choice by the vet. It is a triple antibiotic opthalmic ointment available by prescription. It is up to the vet to decide the best antibiotic product for your individual pet.

Using Neosporin for cat eye infection? I've looked up the ingredients and they are exactly the same as bnp ointment.

Asked by: Zinc
Neosporin ointment comes in different formulations. The neosporin ointment that is available over the counter is not used in the eye, its only formulated for topical use for cuts and scrapes. There is a neosporin opthalmic ointment that has the same formulation as BNP opthalmic ointment. Always check with your veterinarian before using any product in your pet's eye's.

How long should BNP be used/applied?

I just adopted two kittens who needed love and care (almost stray cats) and took them to an animal clinic. The vet gave me one oral medication (1/2 pill each, daily for 8 days, it's hard for me to read her handwriting but it looks like Amoul 50) for their respiratory infection and a tube (3.5g) of BNP to apply twice daily (for both cats). Now, the tube is almost empty, one of the cat is visibly better but the other still has red eye lids (not as bad as before but she's still sad looking). I am short on $$$ so i am wondering if i should save the remaining of the tube (BNP) for the kitty whose eyes are still red or if i should keep on treating both until the tube is fully empty. (The vet didn't specify and i am not in the same province anymore). Thoughts? Suggestions? Thank you!
Asked by: kllishaw
Duration of treatment is determined by the type of infection and condtion of the pet. The prescribing veterinarian should be consulted.

may i use this in my dogs eyes if it has expired

triple antibiotic with cortisone ointment
Asked by: carby
No. You should never use expired medication, especially a medication for the eye since the product is most likely no longer sterile.
