Okay, I never got around to asking for dosing, but when I call my vet to call in the prescription next week I will ask. I think its one drop in each 3-4 times a day (since it doesnt last long in the eye) but I wanna cut him back if I can.

I will pick it up next week to have on hand when I finish up the tube of Optimmume that should be made of gold...His eyes looks better today. Though its still red...not sure if that will take time to clear up

The one thing thats bothering me is I call and ask them to call a prescription into the pharmacy. The lady says I will write it down and give it to the vet. Well it never makes it to the vet or they just never call me back.

That drives me insane, because then they think I am rude when I keep calling back. I will not have my dog go without medication and it bothers me they cant seem to find 2 minutes to call in a prescription.

Ugh im having a bad day. If worse comes to worse I will show up in person and ask her to write me a script between an appointment so I can get his meds filled.

Why don't you just use the Optimmune ointment until you get the drops?

I am going to finish the tube of Optimmune. But this tube will only last 1-2 weeks. So I will be less anxious if I get the prednisolone drops before this tube runs out. I hate doing things last minute. So as long as the script is called in I can pick it up the end of next week.

Okay, I wanted to ask a couple questions.

How long until I get the full effects of the drops? Will any of the pigment clear up?

Also does the Optimmune sting? After I put it in he paws at his eye and tries to scratch it with his back paw. He never did this until after the drops.

Cut the BS. You dawdled and dawdled over even taking him to the vet - so don't try to float the "my dog will not go without medication"; further more you want a cheap fix, trying to get around what they perscribed. "my dog will not go without medication" -- Now everyone at the vets office is supposed to drop everything because you have called?

The inconsistency in your posts damages your credibility.

Middle, you have to learn to let things go. It makes YOU look like the inmature one.

Thye prescribed Optimmune because its going to cost me $100 a month to buy from them. If they truly wanted him on only that they wouldnt of wrote me the script for the pred drops. The pred will cost me $32 every 2-3 months, they arent making much profit off that.

First you complain when I dont take him to the vet. So when I finally do your not happy with me trying to find a cheaper option to treat him.

Now I am reminded again as to why I stayed away from this forum for a while. Now I think I may go back to the other forum where people actually HELP me rather then complain because I am trying to treat my dog verses leaving him un treated.

My dog will not go without medication if there are cheaper options to try. If everything was gunna cost over $100 a month, then yes I likely wont be able to treat it. The pred drops are also used to treat pannus. Not sure what crawled up you to always have to find something to complain about
