While Pender Veterinary Centre has not prescribed many of these products recently, please be advised of a recent voluntary Product Recall of Vetropolycin Ophthalmic Ointment 3.5 gm, Vetropolycin HC Ophthalmic Ointment 3.5 gm, and Puralube Vet Ophthalmic Ointment 3.5gm.
If you have been prescribed any of these medications for your pet in the last few weeks, through Pender Veterinary Centre, please call us to check the Lot Number of the medication, or if you have any questions or concerns.
Pender’s answer is that each pet should be evaluated by one of our veterinarians at the time of their annual exam and the doctor will make recommendations based on the pet’s lifestyle, breed, age, and exposure. We don’t vaccinate our own pets with more than they truly need, and we treat your pets the same. We do recognize, however, that vaccines are the best and safest agents to control and prevent many common infectious diseases. Our vaccines are chosen for quality, effectiveness and safety … not by price!
