Clinagel Vet for Dogs & Cats

  • 4g Tube £10.51


Clinagel Vet is an antibiotic eye ointment. It contains a powerful, broad spectrum antibiotic in a safe and soothing gel. It can be used to treat all parts of the eye and associated structures which come into contact with the gel and tears after application. The antibiotic is not significantly absorbed and so is not suitable for intra-ocular infections.


Sterile clear eye gel containing 3 mg gentamicin (as gentamicin sulphate) per gram of gel.

It also contains benzalkonium chloride 0.1 mg/g as antimicrobial preservative, and hypromellose.


Clinagel® Vet is an eye gel indicated for the treatment of infections of the external structures of the eyes and the eyelids and for the treatment of superficial eye infections caused by bacteria which are sensitive to gentamicin in dogs and cats.

These infections include

Bacterial conjunctivitis, keratitis, bacterial kerato-conjunctivitis, ulcers and abscesses of the cornea, blepharitis and blepharo-conjunctivitis, acute meibomitis and dacryocystitis. Infectious complications caused by corneal or conjunctival foreign bodies, and infections associated with physical or chemical agent.

Dosage and administration

Topical administration in the eye, avoiding contact between the tube and the eye. Administer in small amounts (~ 1 cm strip) two or three times a day in the conjunctival sac of the lower eye lid. The duration of the treatment is one to several weeks, depending on the nature and the severity of the infection.

Instructions for use

1. When using the product for the first time unscrew the complete cap

2. Remove the lowest ring from the cap and discard

3. Replace the remainder of the cap which will pierce the seal at the top of the tube

4. The tube is now ready for use

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Hypersensitivity to any of the components. Local intolerance has not been reported. However, benzalkonium chloride can cause allergic reactions. In the case of allergic reaction it is recommended to stop treatment immediately. As is the case for other antimicrobial agents, long term topical treatment can cause overgrowth of non-sensitive organisms such as fungi. Avoid contact between the tube and the eye. Do not use concurrently with other antimicrobial ophthalmic products. Due to likely variability (time, geographical) in the occurrence of resistance of bacteria for Gentamicin sulphate, bacteriological sampling and susceptibility testing are recommended. There are no reports about local intolerance. In case of allergic reaction it is recommended to stop the treatment. Benzalkonium chloride can cause allergic reactions.

The product may be used during pregnancy, lactation. For animal treatment only. Keep out of reach and sight of children. For external use only.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the product to animals

Suitable eye drops?

20th Dec 2015

What can i use on a wart on my dogs eyelid hes 14 so dont want him to have anesthetic to have it removed

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

If your dog is only mildly affected, then some non-prescription lubricating drops can help for this (eg Lubrithal). If any discharge is coming from the eye, then CleanOcular is a good non-prescription product to wash this away and keep the eye generally healthy.If things are at all worse, then your vet can prescribe anti-inflammatory +/- antibiotic drops for this. They are very cheap (eg Maxitrol at £5.43 from us) and usually keep the eye healthy and comfortable. However these sort of warts always seem to slowly get bigger and bigger and become more of a problem. Personally I always recommend removing them as soon as possible because the surgery is simple and quick and should not be a great risk for your dog, but that is for you and your vet to assess.

My french bulldog has been prescribed chloramphenicol 1% which is effective when he gets an eye infection. Do you have something similar that I can keep in his medicine cabinet?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Chloramphenicol is a powerful antibiotic and all antibiotics are controlled in this country. We cannot supply any of this type of product without receiving a prescription from your vet first. There are no non-prescription products which are as good, which is a shame. Sometimes using a product such as Optixcare will keep the eyes clean and healthier, so you could try that. Using it regularly before there is a problem will sometimes help. It is not however a substitute for chloramphenicol drops.

Is this suitable

13th Apr 2015

My vet prescribed clinagel for an ulcer on my dogs eyeball, hes had two weeks of treatment with added treatment of remend corneal treament,should it have worked or is there a better option. Thanks

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Ulcers on the cornea can be very slow to heal sometimes. Often the rate of healing is very dramatically increased if the ulcer is simply debrided under local anaesthetic. I would suggest that you ask your vet if this would be suitable. It is a simple technique but not appropriate for all ulcers. There is probably not a better medication than Clinagel, though this again will depend on exactly what happening with your pet. If in doubt, ask your vet for a referral to a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist.

my puppy has conjunctivitis, would this help. Vet has confirmed what it is and has given me Fucithalmic for him, but to be honest, im not all that happy with the results. Eye is still red and weaping.

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Clinagel is a good choice for many cases of conjunctivitis. However in the UK all antibiotic preparations legally have to be prescribed by your own vet. If you are not happy with the results so far you would have to talk to your own vet about alternative treatments.
