Fucithalmic Eye Drops contain the active ingredient fusidic acid, which is an antibiotic medicine. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the membrane that covers the whites of the eyes and lining of the eyelids (bacterial conjunctivitis).
Fusidic acid works by preventing the bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to them. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow, replicate and increase in numbers. Fusidic acid therefore stops the spread of infection and remaining bacteria are killed by the body’s immune system or eventually die.
Fucithalmic Eye Drops can be used in cats, dogs and rabbits for bacterial conjunctivitis.
One drop of the veterinary medicinal product should be instilled into the eye once or twice daily. Treatment should be continued for at least 24 hours after the eye has returned to normal.
If a clinical response is not evident after 5 days following the commencement of administration, the diagnosis should be re-established.
If the animal has one infected eye, it may be advisable to treat both eyes to prevent cross-infection. In such cases, it is better to treat the uninfected eye first to avoid transferring infection via the tube nozzle.
