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.
These are symptoms that we see from all types, shapes, and sizes of pets at Pender every week. If either of these are seen just one time by an owner, there is very seldom a serious problem. But, if the frequency is often or chronic with either, there can be serious life threatening problems. Small animals dehydrate and get chemically out of balance quickly, and must receive IV fluids to get re-balanced. Call immediately for assistance in making decisions if your pet vomits or has diarrhea more than once. Our friendly technicians and doctors will help you decide if your beloved pet needs additional care at our hospital or if rest and your TLC are the right prescription.
