Latanoprost Ophthalmic Eye Drops are prescribed to reduce the pressure in your dog’s eye caused by primary glaucoma.

  • For treating primary glaucoma in dogs
  • Generic form of Xalatan
  • Reduces pressure in the eye
  • Dropper top bottle for easy application

Many dogs with glaucoma face partial or complete loss of vision due to the disease. Glaucoma causes the aqueous humor, the eye’s normal fluid, to stop draining properly from the eye. The additional fluid puts pressure – called Intraocular Pressure (IOP) -- on the eye that can damage the optic nerve and cause loss of vision. Latanoprost Ophthalmic is a prescription medication that can reverse that process. These eye drops, which are in a class of drugs called prostaglandin F2-alpha agonists, increase the amount of fluid flowing out of the eye, therefore reducing pressure in the eye. Often Latanoprost is prescribed when other ophthalmic treatments for glaucoma have failed. Latanoprost is the generic form of Xalatan. We carry various brands of Latanoprost that all work the same way and come in a convenient dropper top bottle.
