    Default Dry Eye Help Re Meds

    Just took my brand new Bully to the Opthomologist and was prescribed TACROLIMUUS 0.02% for Dry Eye (KCS)

    Now I read this is an immune suppressant so I am scared. Linked to Cancers. I think at her age her immune system isn't what is used to be.
    She is going to be 7years old. Saved her from being a puppy maker.

    Not sure if I should used this.

    Anyone use it now,or has used it.

    Comments appreciated.

    Why did they not choose opt-immune? Also sustaine eye drops work well as long as you can give 3x a day. That will not help produce tears, just keep her eyes lubricated.

    I have never used it, but agree with Lisa, I don't know why they didn't just give you sustaine eye drops.

    This med is $60 for a small bottle and it supposed to stimulate tear production.
    1st visit cost me over $200 and I have take her back next month.All out of pocket.
    Plus she needs to be spayed.

    I want the best for her but hope I am doing the right thing.

    Hoping someone who has used it will comes on board.

    Thanks for your replies.
