Excellent for Pannus Treatment
Our three-year-old German Shepherd developed a case of Pannus and was prescribed a steroid by the urgent care vet. While steroids can be used to treat this condition it is not recommended for long-term care due to the possibility of eye ulcers and over time steroids lose their effectiveness. Since this is a lifelong condition we were looking for a better treatment so our regular vet prescribed Tacrolimus, and we ordered it easily through Petmeds. Not only does this medication work far better than the steroids we were using before but it is actually cheaper when we order in bulk. The medication was shipped to our door in a temperature controlled package withvery specific instructions to refrigerate and protect from light. Our dogs eyes have cleared up dramatically and we will be using this medication for the rest of his life.

Possible side effects
I used this for my dog who was suffering from dry eye. The drops helped alleviate the symptoms of dry eye. However, I had read reviews in blogs regarding the possible side effect of developing cancers in other parts of the body as a result of the immune system suppressing nature of the drug. My dog developed cancer within a few months of using this. Considering that he was perfectly healthy before, I think there is a possible correlation.

Way better than the Vet
The specialist dog eye doctor never told us it should be stored in the fridge and in a light blocking bag. I ordered the 15ml and they split it into 3 bottle so the formula stays fresh/sealed. The old vet just gave us 1 giant bottle that we opened daily for a year. Will definitely order again!

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.

QUESTION
My vet prescribed Tacrolimus drops to increase tear production, is this the same product? The word compound after it is confusing me. Thank you
ANSWERS (1)
The product is the same. Compounded means a special compounding pharmacy is making the medication for your pet instead of a commercially available product.
