THERAPEUTIC CLASSIFICATION AND DESCRIPTION: Tetracycline is a broad-spectrum antibacterial agent with activity against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including obligate anaerobes. Tetracycline is well known to be efficacious against Chlamydia, mycoplasma and Rickettsia.
For the antibiotic treatment of infectious conjunctivitis in cats and dogs when caused by organisms susceptible to tetracycline. Laboratory tests should be conducted, including in vitro culturing and susceptibility tests, on samples collected prior to treatment.
Directions For Use
Properly cleanse the eye, removing exudate, debris and any foreign object before treating. Apply a thin layer over the cornea three to four times a day. To apply, insert the tip of the tube beneath the lower eyelid and express a small amount of the ointment into the conjunctival sac. Care should be taken not to contaminate the tip during administration. Treatment should continued for two days after the eye appears normal, or as recommended by the treating veterinarian.
CAUTIONS: If infection does not respond to treatment in two to three days, the diagnosis and therapy should be re-evaluated. Itching, burning or inflammation may occur in animals that are hypersensitive to the product. If a reaction occurs, discontinue use of the product. As with any antibiotic preparation, prolonged use may result in over-growth of non-susceptible organisms including fungi.
