Directions For Use

Directions for Use

Fucithalmic vet. is used once or twice a day according to your veterinary surgeon's recommendations.

1. For ease of application, it is sometimes helpful if one person holds the animal and another person applies the drops. The animal should be held firmly in the sitting position. Small dogs, cats or rabbits should be placed on a table or similar surface.

2. Remove the discharge and debris from the corners and around the eye with a piece of cotton wool moistened with warm water or a ready-made eye lotion.

3. Remove screw cap.

4. Place one hand under the animal's chin and raise its head up slightly. Hold the head firmly. In the case of a dog, it may be necessary to apply a muzzle to prevent the dog injuring you. In the case of a cat or rabbit, if the animal is difficult to restrain it might be helpful in order to keep the animal in the right position during the administration to wrap the body of the animal in a towel keeping its head clear off the towel (ask your veterinary surgeon for advice regarding this).

5. Treat the uninfected eye first if advised to do so by your veterinary surgeon.

6. Whilst holding the tube between the index finger and thumb of your other hand, place the side of this hand on the animal's head above the eye and use it to pull the upper eyelid upwards to expose the white of the eye. Squeeze one drop of Fucithalmic vet. and allow it to fall onto the eyeball or underneath the upper eyelid making sure that the nozzle does not touch the eye or its surroundings. Then release the eyelid.

7. In some rabbits, it may be easier to pull the lower eyelid down to apply the drop.

8. Repeat this procedure with the infected eye.

9. Replace the screw cap between applications; do not touch the nozzle with your fingers.

10. If twice daily dosing is recommended, repeat this procedure the following morning or evening.

11. Wash hands after applying the product.

12. Complete the course as prescribed by your veterinary surgeon. The normal course is to continue treatment for at least 24 hours after the eye has returned to normal.

Advice on correct administration: Official, national and regional antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.

Active Ingredient

Fucithalmic Eye Drops (3g) ingredients

Sterile, white to off-white, viscous eye drops suspension.

1 g suspension contains:

Active substance: fusidic acid 10 mg.

Excipients: benzalkonium chloride, 0.1 mg as an antimicrobial preservative, disodium edetate, mannitol, carbomer, sodium hydroxide and water for injections.

Side Effects

Side effects of Fucithalmic Eye Drops (3g)

The drops should not be used if your dog, cat or rabbit is allergic or hypersensitive to the ingredients.

Use the drops as instructed by your veterinary surgeon, as Fucithalmic vet. should not be used in specific types of conjunctivitis (associated with Pseudomonas spp.).

Adverse reactions: Allergic reactions or hypersensitivity to the active substance or the excipients might occur. Stop using the product if an allergy develops.

If you notice any serious effects or other effects not mentioned in the data sheet, please inform your veterinary surgeon.

Special precautions for use in animals: When the tube is squeezed, Fucithalmic vet. 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.

You may find a white powder around the eye which is caused when the drops dry out. This is quite normal and is not harmful. It may be wiped off with moist cotton wool.

If you forget to use the drops at the right time, use them as soon as you remember. Then go on as before.

If there is no improvement after 5 days following the start of the course of treatment, please contact your vet.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals: Wash hands thoroughly after applying the product.

Special warnings: For animal treatment only.

For external use only.

To be used under veterinary supervision.

Do not use the same tube to treat different animals.

Once the course of treatment is finished, do not use Fucithalmic vet. again except on the advice of your veterinary surgeon.

Withdrawal period: A withdrawal period is not applicable for Fucithalmic vet.

Not for use in rabbits intended for human consumption.

Q & A

Q. Hi! I was prescribed this product by my vet and my cat struggles every time I put it on him, causing me to have a little blunder and some of the gel came out of his eye and onto his fur (just beneath his eye). Will this cause any problems?? The leaflet says to make sure the gel doesn't touch anywhere but the eye, with no other information. I'm worried this will affect my cat.
A.

No, don't worry - it won't cause any problems on his skin or fur! The reason for the warning is that if the nozzle touches the fur often, it could become contaminated with skin bacteria, which then get transferred to the eye. However, as a one-off, it shouldn't be a problem - just wipe off the nozzle with warm water and try again - wriggly cats aren't the easiest creatures to medicate, and its not just you! If its any comfort, they usually get used to the idea after a while...

Q. my 2 russian hamsters have been acting strange after i started treatment on 1 of them with this product, is it conected and should i stop using it on him please? both are males and normaly live happily together in a 3 storey-well tubed cage
A.

I think it is quite unlikely - there's nothing in Fucithalmic that would cause any change in behaviour. Its more likely that the behavioural change you've observed is due to the discomfort of an eye infection, so I definitely wouldn't stop using it unless your vet tells you to.

Q. should i still use this on my dog every time i keep trying he starts yelping
A.

Some dogs dislike anything being put into their eyes, and he might be objecting to it. However, I DEFINITELY would NOT stop using it - eyes are very delicate and if your vet has prescribed Fucithalmic, it is vital to use it as they direct.
I think it would be worth contacting your vet and showing them how you're applying it, and how the dog is reacting, to make sure it's being applied correctly and there isn't an underlying problem. Your vet may also be able to prescribe a different product that might be easier to give.

Q. what is the recommended withdrawal period for fucithalmic if any for testing please?
A.

Because Fucithalmic isn't licensed for use in food-producing animals, there is no safe withdrawal period established by the manufacturer.

Q. What to do if puppy swallows some fucithalmic vet ?
A.

In general, I would advise you to contact your vet! The gel contains an antibiotic which may give him a bit of a stomach upset.

Q. is isafe to use fucithalmic on my pet chicken that has an eye infection ?
A.

Fucithalmic isn't licensed in poultry, and therefore there haven't been any safety studies that I am aware of. As its a prescription medicine, you should use it according to your vet's instructions; if they have elected to use it on the cascade in your chicken, then I would follow their advice, but be aware that the eggs should not be eaten for at least 28 days after the end of the treatment, or longer as your vet directs.
