Glaucoma causes pressure to build up in your pet’s eye -- Dorzolamide Eye Drops help reverse that process. This prescription medication combines two drugs into one effective, easy-to-dose treatment. Glaucoma is an eye disease that increases pressure in the eye, which can damage the structure of the eye and, over time, cause blindness. The disease is more common in dogs than cats and is usually genetic, but it can also be caused by trauma to the eye.
Cats and dogs
Tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other eye drops or eye medications, before using Dorzolamide HCl. Contact your veterinarian immediately, if your pet has swelling of the face or itching, or appears to have difficulty breathing. Do not touch the dropper opening to any surface including eyes or hands as it is sterile and if becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.
Apply the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, disregard the missed dose and give only the next scheduled dose.
