Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is AWESOME! My 8 year old mini doxie was diagnosed with KCS (dry eye) at 11 months. Everyday of our lives since has involved eye drops. Her original course of treatment was tacrolimus, neomycin and polymyxin and an OTC lubricant drop. This regiment was done twice a day and eventually reduced to once a day for YEAS! She stopped responding to this treatment about 6 months ago. A new vet tried us on cyclosporine and after a brief honeymoon period it stopped working. We went back to the original treatment and limped along until I was certain we would be visiting the specialist for a more aggressive solution. I was researching and found the reviews here and decided the few bucks was worth the try compared to the specialist fee of $125 just to walk in the door. OMG!!! This stuff is working! Two weeks in and I treat the eye two to three times a day. The eye has not looked so healthy in months. I am crossing my fingers that we aren't having another "honeymoon period" and will update if things change. I cannot believe after YEARS of buying high priced, compounded drops a simple, OTC counter solution would be available. It is worth the few dollars to try this product. Give it three or four days if you have a serious eye issue like I did. The effort and cost are nothing compared to the excellent outcome!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LiquiTears Winter in Northeast means woodstove weather. Lola's eyes were very dry and using the drops before bed seems to make her so much more comfortable. No more rubbing! I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My Shih Tzu had dry eyes which were red and she could hardly open her eyes. Initially this product didn't work for the first few days but I continued using it for a week and viola! It works! Now she is back to her normal playful and feisty self, bright eyed and bushy tail. I'm so happy that finally I found a product that worked and thanks to those who posted positive reviews about this product which was the reason why I tried it because the vet prescribed several other topical cream and none worked after spending $$$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My shih tzu Katie at 10, has dry eye. The meds from the vet were so expensive. I'm on a fixed income & read all about LiquiTears & Puralube ointment. Has same ingredients at an affordable price. I use it twice a day & she is bright eyed & feels so good now. That's why I call it "Katies Miracle". thank you so much for being there when I was so desperate to keep my baby girls eyes healthy. I am recommending these products to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LiquiTears Brittany was suffering from dry eye and this was recommended to me. From the vet, it was very expensive so 1800 PedMeds came to my rescue. I am very satisfied and at her last appt vet said she was doing well. I also am using Puralube ointment along with the LiquiTears. She was getting this 3x's a day but we are down to two.

Will this help with a Dog that has red eyes due to allergies?

My dog has red eyes due to allergies and he has been using Omega 3 Fish oil to help his joints. Will this help his red eyes? 11 year old Rough Collie
Asked by: jakenrudy
I would try it since it may bring your dog some relief. The drops helped immediately with my dog's dry eye condition. It seems to be soothing and lubricating at the same time.

Use on 3-week old kitten?

Could I use this on a 3 week old kitten? Details: One of the ferals in our neighborhood had kittens - in the box I made up for her if you can believe that! We've been taking care of the lil sweethearts, their mama is a devoted and wonderful mother, and she is just a kitten herself :( Not to worry, we will be paying to have her spayed after she's weaned the lil ones..she showed up pregnant at my doorstep about 4 weeks ago with another feral that I've been feeding for about a year. Anyway, she has a bit of clear gunk that's sort of "pasting" her eyes closed, for the most part. Washing them with sterile saline helps, but rather than having to do this several times a day, can we use this? Will it hurt the lil mama if she licks it from the kitten's face? I suspect it shouldn't be an issue, but I would love some feedback. Thanks :)
Asked by: Toshira
There should be no problems with using this product in the kitten. However since this is just a lubricant it may not resolve the underlying problem that is causing the secretions from the eye.
