Great bottle, but needs different bottle
Loved finding this on 1800PetMeds since my vet stopped carrying the drops. The reason for the 3 stars is the bottle.. It leaks and you end up losing some of the product. Plus the label basically disintegrates after a little bit because of the leaking. So I recommend because it is better than the gel even with the leaking. 1800PetMeds.. Please fix the bottle!!!

Ditch the plastic bottle...
Effectiveness: the drops were recommended by my vet and we (the vet and I) are both happy with the results. The plastic bottle that it comes in is absolute rubbish. I bought a sterile 1oz amber glass bottle with a dropper. I transferred the plastic bottles into the glass dropper bottle. Works like a dream.

Good product, bad packaging
The solution works great and comes at a great price. However, the plastic bottle it comes in leaks at the cap, which wastes medicine and cancels out your savings. It's also hard to be exact with your drop dosage. The bottle is soft when you squeeze it, but hardly anything comes out when you squeeze it, causing me to over squeeze sometimes, and causes even more wasted drops. What would be nice is if it came in a traditional glass bottle (preferably sun proof) and eye dropper cap. Other than that, the product works.

ANSWERS (1)
Unfortunately, there is no over the counter product that is a suitable alternative to cyclosporine ophthalmic therapy. There is a commercially made 0.2 % ointment that is more cost effective than the compounded drops. Consult your veterinarian to determine if the ointment is an appropriate option.
