Consistency is Key!
We see many patients who need chronic medications to control their eye issues. Often things improve and the pet’s eyes look normal and comfortable. This is when it can become difficult to stay consistent because they are looking so good! Unfortunately, eye medications do not have a lasting (long term) effect and must be given consistently at the prescribed number of times per day to continue to control some of these ocular diseases that cannot be cured such as dry eye, Pannus, and glaucoma. If medications are reduced or stopped, and the disease is no longer controlled, your pet has less chance of responding each time we restart treatment. To maximize your pet’s results and save some headaches down the road, do your best to keep up with routine follow up exams, treat as directed, and give us a call for refills before you run out of medications!
