How long is this medication good for? The left eye exploded on Mother's Day 2014. He had 2 eye graphs to fix the hole. His right eye is looking bad, it's Saturday, and won't be able to be seen until Mon. Can I use leftover med., stored at room temp??
Renly, Each tube of B.N.P. with HC ointment will have an expiration date on the tube. Usually on an eye ointment, the expiration date will be listed on the crimp of the tube. It is never recommended to use expired medication. Your veterinarian needs to be consulted to determine if B.N.P. with HC ointment would be appropriate for the current condition. Using leftover medication for a new condition without consulting your veterinarian can lead to even greater problems resulting from the incorrect medication used, incorrect dosing and delay of proper treatment.
