Corneal ulcers in dogs and cats are very common. Regardless of etiology (melting or indolent corneal ulcers) and of the affected layers of the cornea (superficial or deep corneal ulcers), local treatment is performed using eye drops with antibiotic and corneal healing drugs (hyaluronic acid and acetylcysteine). Each eye should be instilled 5-8 times per day for 14-21 days. In Romania, the eye drops available on the market have only one active substance and the owner must apply the topical medication from several vials. To remove this drawback, a new healing eye drop formulation containing sodium hyaluronate, acetylcysteine and insulin (as a growth tissue factor) has been developed, reducing the number of daily administrations. This new formulation is well tolerated and the corneal healing is achieved by only 3-4 administrations per day.
