Questions

Can a human use the same eye medication ( oxytretracheline ophth ointment, as prescribed for a dog

Asked by: Tammy
This exact product is only to be used in animals, as it is not approved for human use. There are however other products like this available for human use, as Oxytetracycline ointment is safe for animals and humans. Hope this helps.

My 8 week old kitten has a URI, we saw the vet last week and she put him on Clavamox .5cc twice a day. I noticed a yellow discharge and he didn't want to open his left eye. Vet put him on BNP. How often can I administer it? The box says every 3-4 hours?

Asked by: Amanda47
This can be used every 6 hours to effected eye. If condition is not improved in a few days it is important to get in touch with the veterinarian for more advice. It is also very important not to touch the tube opening to any surface, including hands and eyes. The tube opening is sterile. If that area that comes into contact with the eyes becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection of the eye or make an already infected eye worse. If you have any questions about this particular medication please call your 1800PetMeds Pharmacist.

Asked by: Tico
You should see improvement in your dogs eye infection within a few days. If you do not see improvement, contact your veterinarian. Your dog should not temporarily lose his vision when using this medication. Make sure you are applying a thin film to inside of the lower eyelid, as directed by your veterinarian.

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.

what if I can't apply the medication 3 times a day for my cat

Is it ok to only apply the medication once a day for 7 days?
Asked by: heidi dirksen
If your veterinarian has told you to apply 3 times a day, anything less means your pet is not getting the full benefit of the medication. If your work schedule is interfering with evenly spacing the dose, I would suggest you apply the medication just before you leave for work, again as soon as you get home, and the last dose just before you go to bed.

Can I use after it's expired?

My cat has a problem where her eyelashes curl under and scratch her eye. When I brought her to the vet they prescribed a pain medicine and Trithalmic Ophthalmic Ointment to put in the eye in case of infection. She seemed to get better and stopped blinking that eye. She's now blinking it again and I'm wondering if I can use the old ointment on it. It expired 7/11/2010. I'm not sure what to do because the vet didn't offer any long term solution. They just said it would always curl under and cause her pain and prescribed the short term meds with no refills.
Asked by: Heather
No you cannot use expired antibiotic. Aside from the fact that it has lost it's potency, it is also not sterile and may harm the eye rather than help. If you believe your cat needs this medication, you should speak to your veterinarian.

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.

Brand Name:

Vetropolycin HC (Dechra), Cortisporin (King), Neobacimyx-H (Schering Plough)

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.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment on my pet:

Do not use B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment if your pet has a viral or fungal infection of the eye. It is used for bacterial infections only. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

Wash your hands prior to using the eye ointment. Apply a thin film of over the cornea three to four times daily in dogs and cats. The area should be properly cleansed prior to use. Foreign bodies, crusted exudates and debris should be carefully removed. Store B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment at 59° - 77 °F., away from moisture and heat. 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.

What should I avoid while applying B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment to my pet:

Do not touch the tube opening to any surface including eyes or hands. This medication may cause blurred vision. Avoid using other eye medications unless approved by your veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of B.N.P. Triple Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment:
