Optimmune: Notes from our vet
If your dog is suffering from trouble with their eyes then they could have a disease called Dry Eye. This is caused by a problem with your pet’s immune system which stops tears being produced. Tears are needed to keep dog’s eyes moist and healthy.
Dry Eye is very common in some breeds of dog especially West Highland White Terriers, Yorkshire Terriers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels and Bulldogs.
Lack of tears causes a thick yellow discharge to develop on a dog’s eye which often builds up round the eye lids and can make them stick together. In severe cases ulcers can develop on the surface of the eye. These are very painful and can lead to blindness if left untreated.
Treatment of Dry Eye involves using false tear drops or ointment to lubricate the eye to help reduce the discharge and make it more comfortable. However this is generally not enough to change the condition.
Optimmune works to try and stop the problems with your dog’s immune system so that the eye starts to produce its own tears again. Usually a small amount of ointment is put into your dog’s eyes twice a day.
Most dogs with Dry Eye will need to have treatment for life as it’s rare that the disease will be cured. However by continuing to give them Optimmune ointment you should see your dog’s eye problems begin to get much better.

Excellent service. Items arrive very quickly, usually within two days of ordering. Have been using them for a couple of years now and items are very cheap compared with vets and pet stores.
I have been totally satisfied with the products I have brought and really pleased that it is so much cheaper that buying from the Vets. The products both the flea treatment and worming tablets for both cat and dog we real value for money
Delivery was good
Product was not . . . The flea treatment used was not very effective, definitely won't be buying again.

Hi Kimberley, we're sorry to hear this. Sometimes fleas can be pesky things to get rid of. On average, 95% of fleas are in the home, with only 5% on the animal itself so it is essential to ensure that the home is treated in addition to the pet. If you would like advice on effective flea control, we can offer a free consultancy by phone with one of our vets. You can either arrange this by requesting on our website or calling us on 0344 748 0108. Regards, Pippa
Always prompt service sometimes delivered next day. cannot fault them.
Price very reasonable much cheaper than the vets.
Very good service as usual - updated my 3 monthly prescription for our dog and ordered the relevant tablets and we received them in the post a couple of days later.
No Fuss, no bother, prompt delivery and the medication suits our dog ideally. We live in a very high tick area and he has been free since we began using Bob Martins. Excellent product, excellent service. Well done.

Please be assured, this is not the usual standard of service that our customers can expect from us. Apologies again for any inconvenience caused. Kind regards, Claire
