Customer Reviews
Tacrolimus Compounded is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm sure this is a fine product, but... I purchase .03% tacrolimus 15ml @ eye vet for $40. I was checking this site to ascertain if their compound is the clear or white liquid type. We prefer the clear because of the application. In addition, our dog is more cooperative when using the clear.

Q&A

Just want to confirm the current base used. Is it still water?

Asked by: ampnj

Would there be any reason to use this PLUS Optixcare lubricant with Hyaluron? Or is that overkill? Thanks!

Asked by: ErinI
Yes, that may be overkill. One ophthalmic treatment for dry eyes should suffice.

Can you compound .3% Tacrolimus?

Our dog has dry eye. The vet upped his tacrolimus perscription to .3% from .03%. Do you compound this strength and if so what would be the price?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sorry but we do not currently offer the Tacrolimus in that concentration.

What base is used (e.g., safflower oil, corn oil)?

My pup is allergic to safflower oil and so needs tacrilimus compound using corn oil.
Asked by: Anonymous
No oil is used in our compounded Tacrolimus. Our formulation is water based.

I see that you offer amounts in 5, 10 & 15 ml. My dog gets one drop per day - how long would each of these amounts last?

Ex: 30, 60, 90 days?
Asked by: Anonymous
The general average for liquids is 20 drops per milliliter of volume. That does not factor in the size of the drops nor the visconsity of the liquid as it is just an average. For a 5ml bottle, generally there is 100 drops and so on.
