Possible Side Effects
Terramycin is typically safe and serious side effects should not be expected, but some stinging can occur. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat has swelling of the face, itching, or appears to have difficulty breathing—these may be signs of an allergic reaction to Terramycin. Talk to your veterinarian about any other side effects that seem unusual or bothersome to your pet.
Drug & Food Interactions
Before using Terramycin, tell your veterinarian if your pet is using other eye medications, as they could interact with Terramycin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any additional prescription or over-the-counter medicines.
Do not use in pets with a known allergy to any of the ingredients. Your pet’s eye should start to look better in 48 to 72 hours. If it looks the same or gets worse, consults with your veterinarian. Extended use of these medications could result in a more serious bacterial or fungal infection.
Store at controlled room temperatures between 68° – 77°F.
