|We have a client who has an am. staff with this problem, she uses I-Drops lubricating drops twice a day (she went to the doggie opthamologist), and so far it is working great for her. The 'basic' otc tears didn't really work for her.
Cal Vet Supply I-Drops
Depending on the severity, we make up a solution for dogs that seems to work well in 'minor' cases. Severin’s Solution is a mixture of Mucomyst, pilocarpine, artificial tears, and antibiotic which can be made up and prescribed. Severin's Solution was what was used before the Optimmune was available. There is a place that 'compounds' this in a 'ready' solution, but I believe the vet would have to order for you. They also have cyclosporin drops which may be cheaper than the ointment.
