Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be VERY Careful I had to use this for an extended period of time because the Vet recommended it be used until I could get into see a Pet Ophthalmologist. I have a 6 year old Shar Pei and her eyes began watering more frequently over a period of the last 6 months. The vet put her on this medication only temporarily until the specialist could see us, then had to reschedule for 2 weeks later because of a severe ice storm, then the specialist went on a 2 week break over the Christmas holiday season. Immediately got into the see this specialist 2 days after he returned to work. At that point, I had been using this eye drop for 5+ weeks and the eye wetting seemed to increase, although the eye lid swelling decreased. Was then told by the specialist that my dog has early stage Glaucoma in both eyes. NOW, we're on an 8 drop per day regiment that will likely never end. The eye pressures were VERY high (up to 59mm) and so be careful using this drug. One of the noted side effects is increased eye pressures - which can lead to Glacouma. Be VERY careful....

Can this be used on cats? For conjuctivitus?

Asked by: Fozzie
apparently, because my vet recommended either trying this, or going to a vet ophthalmologist. Then the ophthalmologist recommended it. After the treatment the conjunctivitis was cured. BUT there are conditions that it can make worse - (I think herpes or bacterial or fungus infections are some). My cat was tested for these first and did not have them, so do not give it to your cat without a doctor doing the tests for other disorders first!

What is the difference?

What is the difference between predniso lone acetate opthalmic suspension usp1% & prednisolone acetate opthalmic solution usp 1%?
Asked by: Duncan's Mommy
Since the drug and the strength are the same, the only difference is the dosage form. A solution is a homogenous mixture which is transparent. A suspension is a mixture that separates upon standing. It has a more opaque appearance and must be shaken before administration.
