This produt worked great for my cat's glaucoma
My burmese cat is on eye meds for glaucoma... Timolol and Dorzolamide. These two topical meds just couldn't quite keep his eye pressure at an acceptable level... until the Methazolamide was added. He takes a half tablet in the evening. This medication has made such a big difference in his eye pressure. He has to be on three meds now for his glaucoma, Timolol, Dorzolamide and Methazolamide, but his eye has been saved!

you changed pill size
I have a small dog. He takes 1/2 pill 2 times a day. You changed the size from 1/2 mg to 1mg. Means I have to cut small pills into quarters. Lot more time consumed and a real pain. Please restock your 1/2 mg pills. Ron

Methazolamide has helped my dog
I was told by an animal eye specialist that the only solution for my dog which was diagnosed with glaucoma was to have her eyes removed. My dog is like a child to me. I went to get a second opinion and they gave me a methazolamide presc. to help keep her pressures low and that she may not need the surgery to remove her eyes. I was all for it, of course with initial routine checkups. She has been doing very well with methazolamide for almost 2 years.

QUESTION
My dog's eye specialist prescribed 50mg of this med 3x per day for her glaucoma. She's a 25 lb shihpoo, so this dose is double what it should based on the recommended dose of 1mg per lb. Do they typically up dosage on this med if warranted? 
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. The USUAL dosage is 1 mg/lb; however, your veterinarian prescribed a dosage more suited towards your pet's needs. You can always double check with them to verify.
