Fucithalmic Vet Eye Drops contain an antibiotic to treat conjunctivitis in dogs, cats and rabbits. The tube is held a short distance above the open eye and one drop is allowed to fall onto the eye itself. This quickly spreads within the tear film and is absorbed into surrounding structures. This means that the antibiotic action persists for some while afterwards, rather than just being washed away by the tears, which happens with some other preparations. Fucithalmic is active against a wide range of bacteria known to cause conjunctivitis in dogs, cats and rabbits. Fucithalmic vet is normally applied once or twice daily
1 g suspension contains: Active substance: Fusidic acid 10 mg
Excipients: Benzalkonium chloride 0.11 mg as an antimicrobial preservative, disodium edetate 0.5 mg as a co-preservative. Also contains mannitol, carbomer, sodium hydroxide and water for injections.
Eye drops, suspension. A sterile, white to off-white, viscous formulation.
Dog: For the topical treatment of conjunctivitis associated with Staphylococcus aureaus and in particular the biotype Staphylococcus intermedius.
Cat: For the topical treatment of conjunctivitis associated with secondary staphylococcal infections.
Rabbit: For the topical treatment of conjunctivitis associated with staphylococcal infections.
One drop of the veterinary medicinal product should be instilled into the eye once or twice daily. Treatment should be continued for at least 24 hours after the eye has returned to normal.
If a clinical response is not evident after 5 days following the commencement of administration, the diagnosis should be re-established.
If the animal has one infected eye, it may be advisable to treat both eyes to prevent cross-infection. In such cases, it is better to treat the uninfected eye first to avoid transferring infection via the tube nozzle.
The veterinary medicinal product should not be used in conjunctivitis cases associated with Pseudomonas spp.
Do not use in cases of known hypersensitivity to the active substance or any of the excipients.
Special warnings for each target species: In cats, the possibility of a primary cause of the conjunctivitis should be investigated and treated if possible.
In rabbits, conjunctivitis may be associated with dacryocystitis and/or dental disease. In such cases, appropriate additional treatment should be instituted.
Special precautions for use in animals: For external use only.
When the tube is squeezed, the veterinary medicinal product comes out as a thick (viscous) drop. The drop quickly becomes liquid on contact with tear fluid and does not affect the sight.
Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the contents during use, and to avoid the nozzle of the tube coming into direct contact with the eye. Avoid fingers touching the tube nozzle.
Do not use the same tube to treat different animals.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals: Wash hands thoroughly after applying the product.
