    Great product and results

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    This eye ointment works very well, treating my Shelties eye condition. I give it to him twice a day. My vet’s office charges three times as much as Chewy does for the same product! Glad Chewy has prescription medicines.

    Clears up film on eye

    By on

    Our boxer had an infection which caused a grey film to completely cover one of her eyes. This medicine is slowly clearing up the infection and she can now see out of that eye again.

    My precious Finn suffered a traumatic eye injury at a VERY young age. He will require prophylactic treatment forever. I apply this antibiotic salve twice daily and it’s so soothing for him.

    IT WAS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!

    By on

    This eye treatment was ordered by our vet for our shih tzu eye allergy. Chewy.com processed the order through their pharmacy and we had it in our hands in just a few days. The ointment has worked and the allergies in her eye have cleared up.
