Contact your veterinarian if the symptoms begin to get worse or if there is no improvement in the pet's condition after a few days. Do not touch the dropper or tube opening to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper or tube opening is sterile and if it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic?

Before using Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other eye drops or eye medications. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to this medication or to any of the individual ingredients. Do not use this medication if the pet has a viral or fungal infection in the eye. It is used to treat bacterial infections only. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic be applied?

The drops are usually applied to the eye every 2 to 4 hours. Shake well before applying the drops. When using the drops, shake the drops to make sure the medication is mixed well. If using more than 1 drop, wait about 1 minute between drops. The ointment is usually applied to the eye every 8 to 12 hours. When using the ointment, apply a thin film into the lower eyelid. Wait at least 10 minutes before applying any other eye medication.

Give the missed dose and continue with the regular dosing schedule.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic?

Customer Reviews
Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works to heal My little Havanese, Dottie, got swiped in the eye by my little rescue dog who likes to play with her. Dottie suffered a slight laceration to her 2nd eyelid so that it was red and inflamed. About 2 days of treatment with Neo Poly Dex (1 drop every 8 hrs) completely cured her. I really recommend for reducing inflammation of the eye, and I think your vet will agree.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Quickly! I would recommend the drops every time. You can make sure the right amount of meds is dispensed and directly into the eye where needed. The problem was cleared up in just a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great eye medication for bulldogs Valentino gets cherry eye in the winter when it is very cold. I use this and his eyes clear up. great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dolly responds well to NPDO medication Dolly does well with Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic eye medication. Our Veterinary prescribed this for her. I give her a massage with a hand held battery operated massager. After that, I just pick her up and cradle her like a baby and instill a drop in each eye. She is wonderful about everything. Perhaps it soothes her eye as well as medicates. She is an adult platinum tip Tonkinese cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for eye allergies! I purchased this product because my Sheltie had it prescribed previously and it worked for his seasonal eye allergies. The drops are easy to apply and it gets rid of the redness and irritation within days on onset. I'll keep using it and its wonderful to be able topurchase it thru 1-800-PETMEDS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neo Poly Dex Ophthalmic The mfgs pamplet says NOT to touch the dropper on the dogs eyes (lids or eye ball) or your fingers. It may cause additional problems. Check out Falcon website for additional information. I suggest you shake the bottle with the lid on. :)

My dog just chewed the top of the dropper. I don't think she igested much, What might I expect?

Asked by: Gracie
If a very small part is ingested it should most likely be excreted without causing much of a problem. If you do notice adverse effects however such as vomiting or it appears that the pet is in any kind of discomfort please contact your veterinarian right away.
