hi read another post on this forum woman says pug was blind and was on tacromilus/genteal drops
ower put genteal drops first, then took tacromilus out of fridge, put in freezer then in dogs eyes
dog has 80% vision back
that the cold medication freezed the pk off
has anyone head of this working?
my dog is on opptimune not tacromilu because the opptimune helped with tear producation so he did not need anything stonger
1) what type of genteal should you use, is there "gel" and "drops" offered? are they the same of different?
2) are you supposed to keep tacromilus or opptimune in the fridge?
3)has anyone put that in he freezer and did it work in "freezing the pk off"
Wouldn't that be painful for the Pug's eye.

I use tacromulus and keep it room temp. It helps with tear production. My Scruffy has been on the drops for three months and the Opthalmologist just said Tuesday her eyes look the best he has ever seen them.

I asked my specialist about it.....and she didn't think it was a good idea at all!

is tacromilus really that much better than opptimune? my vet said that his tear production is up with opptimune so he doesnt need anything stronger...thoughts? results? thanks
I have one Pug on Optimmune and one on Tacrolimus. Both of them have had their PK progression stopped, so both medications work. We do not refrigerate either of them. The freezing idea does not sound good at all.
I gave you this link for Genteal on your previous PK thread: Amazon.com:]Amazon.com: Genteal Genteal Lubricant Eye Gel Severe: Beauty Genteal Genteal Lubricant Eye Gel Severe: Beauty
That link is for the Genteal Severe gel, which is what our ophthalmologist recommends. Genteal does come in various formulas, including mild/moderate drops and an overnight ointment.
Edgar is on tacrolimus and until this bottle of drops, we always kept them in the fridge. The opthomologist got a new supplier and this one does not recommend that they be refridgerate. There is no way I would be putting drops kept in the freezer in his eyes, that has to hurt.
