I-DEFENSE VET Indications
I-DEFENSE® VET is a long-lasting hydrating and lubricating ointment for the eye surface. I-DEFENSE® VET is recommended for use in species such as dogs, cats, horses and other animals. I-DEFENSE® VET’s viscous nature enables a prolonged adhesion to the ocular surface, performing its moisturizing and protective action even during the night hours.
