Reviews

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.

Wedgewood pharmacy does not refrigerate this product. Why are you saying to refrigerate?

Asked by: Andy
Thank you for your question. The inactive ingredients and formula used by the compounding lab determine if refrigeration is required. Wedgewood Pharmacy obviously use a different formula.

My pug requires drops every four hours, which is very expensive. Also, we live in Seattle, so by the time I know we are REALLY out, ordering from Wedgwood takes at least five days. So I’d like something I can use in an emergency.

Optimmune Ophthalmic Ointment is a sterile eye ointment containing cyclosporine, which helps to treat keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS or dry eye) in dogs. It reduces inflammation, stimulates tear production, and helps to reduce damage to the tear glands. Optimmune is commercially produced as opposed to being compounded. Your veterinarian will determine if Optimmune is an appropriate alternative for your pet's condition.
