What is Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment?

Terramycin is an ophthalmic antibiotic ointment to help fight eye infections such as conjunctivitis, inflamed cornea, pink eye, corneal ulcer, and inflammation of the eyelids. Terramycin requires a prescription from your veterinarian (California residents only).

For:

Cats, Dogs, and Horses

Benefits:
  • Provides dual antibiotic activity to fight bacterial infections
How it Works:

One of its main ingredients, oxytetracycline, works by blocking the ability of bacteria to produce proteins which helps them to grow and multiply.

Terramycin Ophthalmic is rated 4.4615 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like magic! My kitty Mocha Latte developed a sudden eye infection. Her eye was red, watery and obviously irritated. went to 2 local Pet stores for a treatment product and there was NOTHING. I ordered a tube of Terramycin from Pet Meds and received it the very next day. The consistency of the ointment was perfect, I was able to quickly and easily apply it to her eye while simply petting her face. Checked her in the morning the next day and the infection was GONE!! This was like a miracle. Highly recommend this product and 1800Petmeds!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! This cream worked great on my shih tzu. She had a lot of gunk around her eyes and after 3 days of using it twice a day it cleared up. Only down, seems that when you squeeze the tube after you use it, it dispenses more of the cream. Just seems wasted. Overall, works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works great In a few days the gunk in my cocker spaniel eyes was gone. She is 10 and getting blind. It really reduced the gunk build up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Cat I just adopted a blind cat. She is young and very fiesty and doesn't let ANYTHING stand in her way! Her little blue eyes get pink each day so this Terramycin really helps her live her life to the fullest! It keeps the pink away and she takes a moment for Mommy to hold her and put the drops in her eyes...thats ALL she takes! I have a happy kitten!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product healed my dogs eye The Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment worked on his eye in approximately 7 to 10 days. My boxer, Wally ran into something and scratched his eye. His eye got infected so I ordered the Terramycin for the first time and used it and it worked. The product healed my dogs eye. Wally is bright eyed and bushy tailed again. Wally's eye is healed and I will use it the next time he gets an eye infection. Wally didn't have any side affects from the ointment. The hardest part is having to open the dogs eye lids and using your finger to rub the ointment into the infected eye without hurting the dogs eye. I recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet! Puppy has an ulcer in her eye and the vet told me to apply this stuff to her eyes to heal her. The vet made it sound so easy, "just a little in each eye 3 times a day." Now I have been using the product for three days and have found if you calm the puppy then squeeze the tube over her eye, it gets in effectively. It does not hurt her, and in two days the redness, crying, and scratching has stopped. The ulcer is still there but getting smaller! Though my puppy is not completely cured yet, I know this product is helping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I use this on my horse whenever he gets eye irritation from fly's. Works great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can do harm My cat had conjunctivitis. he had no other symptoms. the vet prescribed terramycin (but didn't inspect with an opthalmoscope or do any tests.) The conjuncivitis got worse and worse, Kiti's eyes clouded over and he was obviously having trouble seeing, he didn't want to open them, he got tired, miserable and I knew he was aching all over, as he growled and howled when I touched him, his fur was staring and he just wanted to sleep, wouldn't run or play. In the end, i realised that it must be the ointment that was making him ill, stopped using it and just bathed his eyes with warm, very salty water6 instead - and 24 hours later he was as good as new! All medications can be harmful and we should never forget that.

Q&A

can you use terramycin for ear infection

Asked by: Liana
I used Terramycin for my dogs earsz and it worked like a charm.  They say eyes only but come on,  it's an antibiotic and we all know how pricey it can get to own pets.  Sores, ears. It works.

how long should it be used?

Asked by: Jackie
Duration of treatment for Terramycin eye drops depends on the severity of infection and type of infection being treated. Your veterinarian should let you know how long to treat your pet, based on their examination of them.

Can terramycin be for other than the eyes

Asked by: tj
Yes, I used it for a sore on my dogs head from where he cut or scrapped his head. It healed up the sore. My dog apparently cut his head and scratched the cut and I didn't want the cut to get infected.

do we need to keep cat indoors while applying?

Asked by: kizzi
I would for a few minutes at least to ensure they keep their paws from their eyes. We want the stuff to work before introducing something dirty that could be harmful to them getting better.
