How it works

Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution 0.3% is used to treat conjunctivitis as well as many other susceptible bacterial infections of the eye, including gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens that cause eye infection. It works by stopping bacteria from making DNA. This kills the bacteria and stops the infection.

Storage:

Use according to your veterinarian's instructions.

For Corneal Ulcers:The usual recommended dosage for corneal ulcers is two (2) drops into the affected eye every 15 minutes for the first six hours and then two (2) drops into the affected eye every 30 minutes for the remainder of the first day.
