Product Info:

Tropicamide eye drops relax certain muscles in the eye and dilate the pupil. This prescription medication is in a class of drugs called anticholinergics. It’s often used for diagnosing eye problems in cats and dogs. In some cases, veterinarians may prescribe Tropicamide eye drops to treat some types of glaucoma in pets. However, these drops are usually not used to treat primary glaucoma. Your veterinarian may also prescribe Tropicamide to reduce your dog or cat’s eye pain prior to and after cataract surgery.

Side Effects:

  • If the eye drops get into the mouth, the animal may salivate.

  • Tropicamide may sting when applied.

  • If the pet receives too much tropicamide, dry mouth, constipation and vomiting may occur along with changes in heart rate and rhythm, increase in body temperature and the inability to urinate.

  • Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.

  • Cautions:

  • Wash your hands before and after administering tropicamide.

  • DO NOT touch the eye with the tip of the dropper.

  • DO NOT give the pet more medicine than directed and do not give more often than directed.

  • After administration of the medication maximal dilation occurs in 15 to 30 minutes and may persist for 6 to 12 hours. Since the pupil is dilated, the pet will be very sensitive to sunlight. Keep pets out of bright light while receiving this medication.
