Definitely Helps

By Cassie

About Me Long-time Pet Owner

Comments about Prednisolone Acetate 1% Ophthalmic Solution For Dogs and Horses:

This is a great product. It definitely helps with my dog's eye irritation. Just know that the exact brand in the picture is not necessarily the brand you will receive in the mail. I was ok with that. If you are expecting the same brand you originally received from your vet, you may not get it. For example, in the picture it displays the Falcon brand of Prednisolone Acetate 1% Ophthalmic Solution, but I received the Pharma brand Prednisolone Acetate 1% Ophthalmic Solution.

      Comments about Prednisolone Acetate 1% Ophthalmic Solution For Dogs and Horses:

      I use the drops as part of treating my GSD's pannus. It does the job. The price recently shot up but I was able to buy it here very reasonably with Free shipping. Fast delivery once my vet faxed in the rx. As far as I can tell it is the same stuff from the same manufacturer as I have been using.

      • Daily Care

      Comments about Prednisolone Acetate 1% Ophthalmic Solution For Dogs and Horses:

      This product has kept my dog's symptoms at bay which is at least something. It is also a bit of an inconvenience to have to apply it twice a day and forever, but what can a dog lover do? Regardless, this product is doing what it's suppose to do and purchasing it from this vendor saves a lot of dollars compared to other options and it has so far proved service friendly.

          Our vet prescribed this and we had been buying from him. I checked out buying it online and Pet Food Direct had the best price, which was 1/3 of what we had been paying.
