What is Dorzolamide?
Dorzolamide is a prescription eye medication for cats and dogs. It is used to treat glaucoma or to prevent glaucoma when glaucoma is already present in the other eye.

Who is it for?
Dorzolamide is for cats and dogs.

What are the benefits?

* Prescription eye (ophthalmic) medication for cats and dogs
* Dorzolamide is used for the treatment or prevention of glaucoma
* Convenient dropper bottle for easy administration

Dorzolamide is used in the eye as a treatment for glaucoma. Dorzolamide may be used in the unaffected eye to prevent glaucoma when glaucoma is already present in the other eye. Convenient dropper bottle.

How does Dorzolamide work?
Dorzolamide works by reducing the production of aqueous humour, the fluid within the eye. This decreases the pressure in the eyeball.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Dorzolamide is the generic equivalent of Trusopt.

How is it given?
Dorzolamide is applied in the eyes. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. If discharge is present, the area should be cleansed with a sterile eyewash solution prior to applying the solution.

Shake the solution well before using. When applying the ophthalmic solution, 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 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.

Take care not to touch the tip of the tube or dropper to the pet's eye, lids, or eyelashes. Do not touch the inside of the cap, the dropper, or tube tip with your fingers, as this will also contaminate the medication. Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication.

If you are applying more than one medication to the eye, allow five minutes between applications so one medication is not washed out by the next. Be sure not to interchange the caps of the medications.

What results can I expect?
Dorzolamide will not cure glaucoma but it can help alleviate the symptoms and prevent glaucoma in the "good" eye when the other eye already has been diagnosed with glaucoma. Symptoms will recur if Dorzolamide is discontinued.

What form(s) does it come in?
Ophthalmic Solution.
