Relief within days My English Bulldog is a rescue who had cherry eye and the surgery for it while he was in foster care. As a result, he has dry eye and frequently would get a crusty discharge from his eyes. The right eye was much worse than his left one but with the daily use of the Puralube Ointment, his eyes are no longer crusty. They stay hydrated and the reddness is much improved. I had been using a replenishing eye gel that the foster care had used but this is so much better. Would definitely recommend this product. 08/10/2011
Eye Mucus No More... Only after a day of use and he has no more mucus from his eye. My dog, Gunner, is blind in one eye and he was having dryness with mucus discretion so I ordered this and it worked like a lucky charm. 05/09/2011
Dry Eye Syndrome We have been using this product since we adopted our newest four legged "baby".When we first got her out of the county animal shelter it was obvious that she had an eye infection both her eyes were almost half covered with mucus, we immeadiately took her to the vet to have her treated and had to use a antibiotic ointment @ $40+ a tube for the same 3.5 grams of this ointment. The vet said once we got the infection cleared up she would have to use an eye lube for the rest of her life because she can't produce her bodys natural eye lube. We purchased/ordered this brand and took it to the vet for her follow up visit and the doc said this would do the jobjust fine, we would have to do it 2-3 times daily and we have been using this going on 3 years now with no problems. Moral to the story is that it does NOT always have to be the most expensive product to take care of your pets medical issues. BTW she's a Shepoo (LOL) thats the best we have sumized, combo of Shi-tzu/Poodle. 5 stars for this product... 11/01/2010
Opt for Optimmune I tried using this instead of Optimmune for my dog's dry eyes. However, this ointment does not help at all. If anything, it has made my cocker spaniel's eyes worse. They are constantly getting large gobs of mucus that have to be cleaned out. I am using this in conjunction with the LiquiTears (which works fine). However, for future orders I will opt for the Optimmune, which I find to be a great product. 04/28/2010
Cheap & Effective Alternative As a rabbit advocate, I have dealt with a lot of various medical issues with rabbits. I serve three bunnies at this time, and my eldest, Muffin, has KCS. Currently, I am strapped for funds, so I have a hard time affording Optimmune, the premiere, default prescription to KCS. Puralube is a much cheaper alternative route, until I can afford to get the former. Granted, it will not perform like Optimmune, but it still soothes my bunny's eyes, and she "chisels" (noting she is enjoying it) whenever I put it in. I recommend this to anyone who has been told by a doctor to give Optimmune to his or her rabbit, and just cannot afford to pay for what the vets call "liquid gold." This is for life, so it's a costly thing. Puralube is a godsend for the "little people." 12/02/2009
