Description

Help fight eye infections caused by bacteria with Terramycin. This broad-spectrum antibiotic ointment is prescribed to help combat a variety of eye infections, including pink eye, inflamed cornea, corneal ulcer and inflammation of the eyelids. These infections can cause pain, irritation, irregular tear production, among other issues. This medication is applied topically for easy administration. California state law requires a prescription for Terramycin. However, non-residents can purchase the drug over the counter.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

Uses

Terramycin is used in the treatment of infections such as conjunctivitis, inflamed cornea, pink eye, corneal ulcers and inflammation of the eyelids.

Possible Side Effects

Terramycin is typically safe and serious side effects should not be expected, but some stinging can occur. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat has swelling of the face, itching, or appears to have difficulty breathing—these may be signs of an allergic reaction to Terramycin. Talk to your veterinarian about any other side effects that seem unusual or bothersome to your pet.

Drug & Food Interactions

Before using Terramycin, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other eye medications, as they could interact with Terramycin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any additional prescription or over-the-counter medicines.

Precautions

WARNING: Serious, life threatening, hypersensitivity (anaphylactic) reactions have been reported in some cats following application of antibiotic ophthalmic preparations. If your cat has swelling of the face, itching, appears weak, vomits, or has difficulty breathing within 4 hours of application you should discontinue treatment and contact your veterinarian immediately. Note: The use of oxytetracycline and other antibiotics may result in an overgrowth of resistant organisms such as Monilia, staphylococci, and other species of bacteria. If new infections due to nonsensitive bacteria or fungi appear during therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.

    Unhappy with RX

    By Marlene on Sep 12, 2021

    I've been buying this for multiple cats eyes for years. Now I come on and need a prescription from the doctor. That's ridiculous. Now I have to have an office visit the cost of that and the cost of the eye cream.

    Confused2021

    By Patsy2020 on May 2, 2021

    I was reading about Terramycin because my dog had infected eye. It named 47 states and DC that it could not sent to. Hawaii, Alaska and California not included. So I got to order a tube and I read that once you buy the product you give your vet name and it had to be approved first before it sends. So If your vet doesn't approve request do you get your money back? As I scroll down even further it says it can not be sent to Calif. Is that because you have to have it approved by a Vet?

    It helped BUT tube is annoying!

    By Norton on May 11, 2019

    It’s a very small tube and you have to be very careful not to hold the tube too tight or a lot of the product comes out. I did see a difference and there were instructions...”use as needed”.. I just, very carefully, squeezed out enough ointment to cover the eye on a cotton swab. Dog had no negative reactions from this product. It’s a bit pricey.

    Why an Rx product?

    By Joyce on Jun 13, 2019

    I have used this product as needed for more than 25 years and it has never required a prescription from a vet! Chewy should indicate which states (if any) require a Rx for this product and several others they sell that DO NOT commonly require Rx.

    No instructions

    By Emily on Feb 20, 2019

    This came with zero instructions. I ended up not using it because, as a concerned dog mom, all I could find on the box was the warning signs and no instructions.
