Dogs commonly suffer from ophthalmic diseases that can diminish not only their sight but also their quality of life. Most breeds of dogs are genetically predisposed to developing many different kinds of ocular diseases, such as retinal disease, glaucoma, and cataracts. Additionally, any dog can develop ocular disorders as a result of diet, age, and/or environment. The eye is constantly bombarded by light, creating oxidative stress. This in turn can trigger a toxic soup of free radicals which damages cells of the eye.
Ocu-GLO Rx Canine Vision Supplement was formulated by veterinary ophthalmologists and a compounding pharmacist to help combat the damaging effects of free radicals at the cellular level. It also helps support ocular health in normal dogs, which is especially important for any dog at risk for developing ocular disease. Ocu-GLO Rx provides a balanced blend of 12 natural antioxidants derived from the purest and highest quality ingredients available. Because Ocu-GLO Rx is administered orally, it may also help support healthy brain function, which is especially important in geriatric dogs with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. It also supports immune health, joint health, and also skin and coat health.
While Ocu-GLO Rx is an excellent stand-alone canine supplement, it can also be combined with the other members of Animal Necessity's family of natural nutraceuticals, including: Joint Guard; Imuno-2865; Serenin Vet; Healthy Aging Vet, Weight Guard Vet, and ShaNa Vet;
Ocu-GLO Rx is available in two convenient dosage sizes: Small Dog Gelcaps for dogs weighing 10 lbs or less, and Medium/Large Dog Gelcaps for dogs weighing 11 lbs or greater.

Ocu-Glo is highly recommended by my Yorkie's eye specialist. Problem is that this is a very expensive product. After researching the internet, this is the absolutely best price available. Also, the service from Entirely Pets was excellent.
ocu-glo by buddy05/23/2014
I give this to my two senior dogs. One is diabetic and lost his vision; the other is getting old which the doctor recommend this to. I buy the snip version which I can't find on this website. The snip version has a long slim tail which makes cutting it very easy. So, for ppl that want to squeeze it out rather than the whole pill, try the snip one.
Works if you can get the dogs to take it by Thelma from WInston Salem NC09/22/2014
I had a diabetic dog about 16 years old. He developed macular degeneration, and the vet recommended Ocu-GLO for him. I gave it to him for 6 months and took him back to the vet to see how he was doing. She said his eyes were still about the same, so I feel that it slowed the degeneration down. Unfortunately, I lost him two months ago, but I have been giving the remaining pills to another older dog who has a congenital catarat. The capsuls are very large, and she will pick it out of her food and leave it on the floor. I have tried squeezing the contents over her food, hiding it in a pill pocket, and pressing the contents between two pieces of meat. She doesn't like it and eats around whatever it's in, leaving the remnants in the bottom of the dish to dry up. It does seem to help and there doesn't seem to be any other equivalent product out there. I wish they would make the pill in a chewable tablet..
My Dog Won't Take It by DaisysMom from Atlanta, GA07/21/2014
My dog's veterinary opthamologist highly recommended Ocu-GLO for my senior Shih Tzu after her cataract surgery. Unfortunately these pills are too big and no matter what I put them in (peanut butter, bread, pill pockets, etc.), she will not swallow them. I find them on the floor around my home and the liquid is red and stains my rugs. My dog usually doesn't have a problem taking other pills if they're in peanut butter, so these must not smell/taste very good. These pills are too big for a small dog. The vet suggested squeezing out the filling and putting it on her food, but these are too expensive to buy a second bottle and try that. I wish they made it in a dropper.
difficult by lulu's mom from PA02/13/2014
the vet suggested we try this product, lulu is losing her vision. i don't like giving this product a poor rating because it might be fine for another dog. lulu is tiny, 6lbs. and can not take the small dog portion since it is still to big. i cut it open to retrieve the insides (not that easy) and it stains (which is stated on the label). i wish there could be an easier way.
