It is a hypertonic ophthalmic ointment (highly concentrated).
This medication is used in pets to temporarily relieve corneal edema (a build-up of water in the cornea that gives the appearance of a veil on the eye).
The veterinarian in charge of the animal will need to regularly check the condition of the animal's cornea. The frequency of re-evaluations will depend on the condition of the animal and the cause causing the corneal edema.
The Muro 128® is available as an eye ointment.
Keep the vial upright at room temperature (15 ° C to 30 ° C).
This product should never be used without supervision by a veterinarian.
This product may cause irritation or a temporary burning sensation when applied to the eye.
It is recommended to stop the medication and to consult again the veterinarian in charge of the animal if:
- the problem is not cured at the end of treatment
- the appearance of the eye gets worse during treatment
- the animal seems uncomfortable when applying the ointment
- there is no improvement 2 or 3 days after the start of treatment
Wash hands after handling the product.
Clean the eye with a non-irritating solution indicated for this purpose before applying the medication.
Avoid touching the eye with the tip of the container and disinfect it with rubbing alcohol after each application.
Close the animal's eyelids and gently massage them for a few seconds to fully spread the product over the entire surface of the eye.
