How to Apply Ointment to your pet's eye:
Assess your pet's eye to determine if there is discharge present, if there is then the area should be cleansed with a sterile eyewash solution prior to applying the ointment or solution.
Is the prescription for one eye or two? I if the prescription are for both eyes it is important that you do not touch the tip of the applicator or your fingers in one eye and then touch the other. If you do so, it will increase the chances that you could spread infection from eye to eye.
If you are applying more than one medication to the eye, allow five minutes between applications so one medication is not removed by the next medication.
When applying ointments, place one hand under and around your pet's chin and lift upward, so your pet's eyes are looking toward the ceiling. Pull down gently on the lower lid with a finger or thumb, depending upon which eye you are treating.
Rest your other hand on top of your pet's head. Be sure the tip of the tube is pointed away from your pet's eye so if your pet jerks, the tube tip will not injure the eye.
Hold the tube of ointment about one inch from the eye and apply a short ribbon of ointment along the inner edge of the lower lid, starting at the inside corner of the eye. Rotate the tube when you reach the outer portion of the eye to help detach the ointment from the tube. Have your pet blink, and gently hold the eyelid shut.
Gently massage the closed eyelid to disperse the ointment. Ointments will blur your animal's vision for a few minutes after administration. Prevent your pet from bumping into things and becoming injured.
Never touch the tip of the tube to the pet's eye, lids, or eyelashes. Do not touch the inside of the cap with your fingers, as this will also contaminate the medication.
