I’m so glad you mentioned something about diet! My 14-year-old Yorky was diagnosed with dry eye last year. She has been on cyclosporine 1%, two times daily since then. It seems to help but I noticed that she has little bumps growing on both the inner edges by her eyes where hair isn’t growing. Has anybody ever noticed that with their dogs? I recently switched her food to Wellness Core and miraculously her eyes cleared up! Then, as a treat, I was giving her some processed chicken (broasted chicken from Costco) and that night the gunk was back. I haven’t discussed the diet thing with my vet yet, but wonder if that could be the answer to a lot of pup’s problems out there? FYI: For people having trouble getting the gel and cream in the eyes, you can run the tube under warm water for about a minute, making it more liquefied. Goes in like a charm! (Having had had three cornea transplants feel I’m somewhat of an expert in the eye-gel-drop department!)
Nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment is particularly useful in the treatment of acute and chronic otitis of varied etiologies, in interdigital cysts in cats and dogs, and in anal gland infections in dogs. The preparation is also indicated in the management of dermatologic disorders characterized by inflammation and dry or exudative dermatitis, particularly those caused, complicated, or threatened by bacterial or candidal ( Candida albicans) infections. It is also of value in eczematous dermatitis; contact dermatitis, and seborrheic dermatitis; and as an adjunct in the treatment of dermatitis due to parasitic infestation.
