Atropine treats corneal ulcers, uveitis (inflammation inside the eye), and other painful conditions associated with the eye. It is also used to dilate the pupil when there is an inflammatory condition or in post-surgery situations. This medication is an anticholinergic agent. Anticholinergic agents act on the parasympathetic nervous system causing the eye muscles to relax. Atropine also paralyzes the sphincter muscle of the iris of the eye, resulting in pupil dilation.
Atropine requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available as an ointment or as a solution. The ointment is available in a 3.5 gm tube. The solution is available in 5ml tube

Benefits:

  • Availiable as an ointment or as a solution.

Directions
