Neo-Poly-Dex Ophthalmic is applied topically to the eye.
It is important to follow your Veterinarian's prescription instructions for your pet.
It is important to always wash your hands before and after you give this medication to your pet.
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?
If the prescription is 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 eye. 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.
Place one hand under and around your pet's chin and lift upward, so the pet's eyes are looking towards the ceiling. Rest your other hand, holding the dropper bottle, on top of the pet's head. Squeeze the drops into the corner of the eye, taking care not to touch the dropper to the eye surface.
Continue to hold the head back for a moment while the drops disperse over the whole eye surface.
