What is Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment?

Terramycin is an ophthalmic antibiotic ointment to help fight eye infections such as conjunctivitis, inflamed cornea, pink eye, corneal ulcer, and inflammation of the eyelids. Terramycin requires a prescription from your veterinarian (California residents only).

For:

Cats, Dogs, and Horses

Benefits:

  • Provides dual antibiotic activity to fight bacterial infections

How does Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment work?

One of its main ingredients, oxytetracycline, works by blocking the ability of bacteria to produce proteins which helps them to grow and multiply.

Cautions:

Do not touch the tube opening to any surface including eyes or hands. This medication may cause blurred vision. Avoid using other eye medications unless approved by your veterinarian. Prolonged use of this medication may result in a serious bacterial or fungal infection.

Brand Name:

Generic Name:

Oxytetracycline HCl, Polymyxin B sulfate

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment on my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to Polymyxin B, oxytetracycline, tetracycline, or doxycycline.

What is the most important information I should know about Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment?

Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment is FDA-approved for veterinary use in dogs, cats, and horses. Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment is available over-the-counter, except in California where it requires a prescription. Terramycin is available as a sterile eye ointment. The sterile ointment is usually applied as a thin film to the inside of the eyelid 2 to 4 times a day. Contact your veterinarian if your pet's symptoms begin to get worse or if you do not see any improvement to your pet's condition after a few days. Do not touch the tube opening to any surface, including eyes and hands. The tube opening is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.

What should I avoid while applying Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment to my pet?

Do not touch the tube opening to any surface including eyes or hands. This medication may cause blurred vision. Avoid using other eye medications unless approved by your veterinarian. Prolonged use of this medication may result in a more serious bacterial or fungal infection.

What are the possible side effects of Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment?

Serious side effects are not expected. Some stinging may occur. Fatal allergic reactions in cats may occur. Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room immediately if your cat has swelling of the face, itching, or appears to have difficulty breathing. Talk to your veterinarian about any other side effects that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

NOTE: The use of oxytetracycline and other antibiotics may result in an overgrowth of resistant organisms such as Monilia, staphylococci, and other species of bacteria. If new infections due to nonsensitive bacteria or fungi appear during therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.

What other drugs will affect Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment?

Before using Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other eye medications. Drugs other than those listed may also interact with Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy cat and roommate This stuff works great. Our orange tabby was always having gooky eye discharge that would dry and crust on his eyes. Not sure if it was allergies or infection. Starting using this and within two days a significant improvement was seen. After using twice daily for a week his eyes are all cleared up and look great. My handsome ginger is happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like magic! My kitty Mocha Latte developed a sudden eye infection. Her eye was red, watery and obviously irritated. went to 2 local Pet stores for a treatment product and there was NOTHING. I ordered a tube of Terramycin from Pet Meds and received it the very next day. The consistency of the ointment was perfect, I was able to quickly and easily apply it to her eye while simply petting her face. Checked her in the morning the next day and the infection was GONE!! This was like a miracle. Highly recommend this product and 1800Petmeds!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! This cream worked great on my shih tzu. She had a lot of gunk around her eyes and after 3 days of using it twice a day it cleared up. Only down, seems that when you squeeze the tube after you use it, it dispenses more of the cream. Just seems wasted. Overall, works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works great In a few days the gunk in my cocker spaniel eyes was gone. She is 10 and getting blind. It really reduced the gunk build up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Cat I just adopted a blind cat. She is young and very fiesty and doesn't let ANYTHING stand in her way! Her little blue eyes get pink each day so this Terramycin really helps her live her life to the fullest! It keeps the pink away and she takes a moment for Mommy to hold her and put the drops in her eyes...thats ALL she takes! I have a happy kitten!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product healed my dogs eye The Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment worked on his eye in approximately 7 to 10 days. My boxer, Wally ran into something and scratched his eye. His eye got infected so I ordered the Terramycin for the first time and used it and it worked. The product healed my dogs eye. Wally is bright eyed and bushy tailed again. Wally's eye is healed and I will use it the next time he gets an eye infection. Wally didn't have any side affects from the ointment. The hardest part is having to open the dogs eye lids and using your finger to rub the ointment into the infected eye without hurting the dogs eye. I recommend this product to anyone.

Hello my dog is 11even years old and recently I started seen eye boogie ..would this item work or what can I use

Asked by: Benji
Thank you for your question. Terramycin is an ophthalmic antibiotic ointment to help fight eye infections such as conjunctivitis, inflamed cornea, pink eye, corneal ulcer, and inflammation of the eyelids. Terramycin requires a prescription from your veterinarian (California residents only). An eye boogie does typically concern for a bacterial infection. Most of the time, you can just pick it off.

Can I use this on my dog even if she's blind on one eye

Asked by: Anony132
I would recommending consulting with your veterinarian before using this medication. This medication is used to treat active eye infections and should not be used if your pet is currently using other eye medications.

can you use terramycin for ear infection

Asked by: Liana
