Reviewing Vetericyn Antimicrobial Ophthalmic Gel for Animals

The best relief for Dog's eyes.
It is spring allergy season. And our allergies are raging this year. I'm struggling. And poor Willy, my dog, is struggling. This is always a rough time of year for him. Fortunately, I have found something that helps alleviate his eye irritation. Vetericyn products are recommended by farmers and homesteaders as a brand that is reliable for the treatment of their livestock and pets. It was from these recommendations that I learned about Vetericyn Antimicrobial Ophthalmic Gel.


Vetericyn Plus Ophthalmic Antimicrobial Gel


Willy has very sensitive skin. Every year we struggle with his allergies. He looks like he has mange, we go to the vet and get him tested, and we learn that it's allergies. 

Willy gets itchy and scratches until he loses patches of hair. Shampoos and creams alleviate some of the body itching. However, his eyes are often extra sensitive. When his eyes are itchy, he ends up rubbing the hair off from around his eyes.

It is very difficult to treat a pet in areas near their eyes. The creams and shampoos that provide the most itch-relief are usually not safe for use near their eyes. The prescription eye cream from the vet is the only other thing that is safe for use on and in the eyes - and it is expensive and comes in a very small tube. It runs out very quickly.

Because of his allergies, and my frequent rubbing him down with something-or-other, Willy hates for me to approach him with any cream, spray, or gel. Hates it. I have to follow him to catch him. I typically take him to the bathroom to decrease the chance of his escape before I am able to administer whatever it is I have to administer.

But, when he sees me with this little blue bottle he dances around and whines. He wants to avoid me and yet he wants the relief in his eye. It's easy to see by the way he dances around, finally approaching me with his head down, that the Vetericyn provides relief. 

I keep Vetericyn eye gel on hand for poor Willy's itchy eyes. But even if his allergies end some day (fingers crossed that day comes), I will always keep a bottle on hand for as long as I have pets. Vetericyn is a brand I've come to trust.

  1. I never thought about animals having allergies and being as miserable as we are with them. Add in the fact that they can't TELL us how they feel, it's especially important to observe their symptoms and find relief for them. Glad to hear that this Vetericyn Antimicrobial Ophthalmic Gel helps poor Willy's eyes during allergy season.

  2. Wow, I never thought about our pets having allergies just like we do. What a wonderful find. While I am pet-free at this point in my life, I will recommend this to all my friends and relatives that do have fur babies. It's always nice to see a recommendation from a pet and owner that knows it works.

  3. Poor Willy, and poor Dawn! I know that has to be really awful for both of you. I sure am glad that you have found a way for the pup to get some relief. I can only imagine how hard it is though to put eye-drops in a dogs eyes. I won't hardly be still to put eye-drops in my own eyes. Having fought the battle of giving doggies much needed medicine many times, I am all too familiar with the chase, catch or corner game required.

  4. A good number of dogs at our animal shelter deal with allergies. Thank you for this recommendation. This is something we should have on hand to provide relief. I feel for your Willy. It is miserable to fight against those allergens. I hope his season of discomfort ends soon. Thank you for being so good to him.

  5. I'll have to see if my son knows about this. Not being a pet owner too often in life, I'm sorry to say I hadn't really considered that Pets have allergies. Silly I know. Of course I've long since learned that they do.
