Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment

Pet Size

Don't know your pet's weight?

If you can't get them on the scale, try this super simple method:

  1. Weigh yourself.
  2. Weigh yourself holding your pet.
  3. Subtract the two numbers to get their weight.

Too heavy to hold? Your vet will weigh them if you ask (or may already have it on file if you call).

  • Description

    Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment is an effective solution for treating a wide range of eye infections in pets. Whether your pet is a dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, and horses, rabbit, or another small animal, this ointment is specially formulated to combat common eye infections caused by bacteria. Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment is a prescription medication that provides rapid relief from symptoms and promotes the healing of eye infections, making it an essential addition to your pet's first aid kit.

    Before you buy Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment for your pet, it is important that you talk to your veterinarian about its effectiveness and potential side effects.


    Terramycin for cats or dogs should be applied 2-4 times daily, depending on the severity of the infection and your veterinarian's recommendations.

    Gently clean your pet's affected eye with a mild, sterile saline solution or warm water to remove any discharge or debris.

    To apply Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment, hold the tube in one hand and gently pull down your pet's lower eyelid with the other hand, creating a small pocket between the eyelid and the eye itself.

    Squeeze a small amount of ointment into the pocket you've created. Be careful not to touch the eye's surface with the tip of the tube.

    Release your pet's eyelid, allowing them to blink naturally. This will help distribute the ointment evenly across the eye.

    Repeat this process as instructed by your veterinarian or as indicated on the product label.


    Terramycin uses oxytetracycline and polymyxin B as its active ingredients.
