Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic is rated 4.851851851851852 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works to heal My little Havanese, Dottie, got swiped in the eye by my little rescue dog who likes to play with her. Dottie suffered a slight laceration to her 2nd eyelid so that it was red and inflamed. About 2 days of treatment with Neo Poly Dex (1 drop every 8 hrs) completely cured her. I really recommend for reducing inflammation of the eye, and I think your vet will agree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our sweet rescue Shorty Bear is a chi chi, he came to us with a Proptosis which is a medical condition which causes a dog's eye to move forward. ... is frequently associated with blunt head trauma. Due to this he had surgery to deflate the pressure due to the trauma he lost his sight, but he now has to have a lubricated med because he's eye gets all gunky.. He's veterinary ophthalmologists recommended Neo Poly Ophth Sus... we swear by it.. Thank you so all the great meds you guys carry, Shorty Bear's Vet doesn't carry this ointment..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Quickly! I would recommend the drops every time. You can make sure the right amount of meds is dispensed and directly into the eye where needed. The problem was cleared up in just a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great eye medication for bulldogs Valentino gets cherry eye in the winter when it is very cold. I use this and his eyes clear up. great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dolly responds well to NPDO medication Dolly does well with Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic eye medication. Our Veterinary prescribed this for her. I give her a massage with a hand held battery operated massager. After that, I just pick her up and cradle her like a baby and instill a drop in each eye. She is wonderful about everything. Perhaps it soothes her eye as well as medicates. She is an adult platinum tip Tonkinese cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for eye allergies! I purchased this product because my Sheltie had it prescribed previously and it worked for his seasonal eye allergies. The drops are easy to apply and it gets rid of the redness and irritation within days on onset. I'll keep using it and its wonderful to be able topurchase it thru 1-800-PETMEDS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic The mfgs pamplet says NOT to touch the dropper on the dogs eyes (lids or eye ball) or your fingers. It may cause additional problems. Check out Falcon website for additional information. I suggest you shake the bottle with the lid on. :)

Q&A

can neopolydex cause diarrhea in dogs?

i used these drops friday morning and friday night in my dog's eye as directed by my vet. at 3 am saturday, she woke me up as she needed to go out..she had terrible diarrhea. could this be caused by the two doses of the medication?
Asked by: kyri's mom
I've used these drops on my little Havanese, same dosage, no problems. I don't see how these drops, if put in the eye (one or two drops and wipe up the excess) could cause diarrhea.

Eye ointment or drops

I have adopted a wonderful cat from my local shelter. She has an eye missing and at times she has inflammation and black discharge from her eye socket. My vet gave me neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and dexamethasone ophthalmic ointment. But now they insist on an office apt to re-prescribe this medication. Her eye will always be gone...can I get this medication from you?
Asked by: Pip
This is a prescription required medication, so you can only get it from us with a prescription from your veterinarian.

does this medication expire?

we have a bottle from the vet and it isn't effective, wondering if I need something else or it actually isn't working because its expired.
Asked by: agb
Please refer to the expiration date on the prescription label. The medication does expire once that date has passed. See your veterinarian for a new prescription if the medicine has expired or there is no improvement with your pet.
