    Hey all!

    My Maine coon has had a few eye infection issues in the past. He hasn't had one in awhile but today his eye is all 'gooped' up and puffy (the same symptoms as before)

    I have some neopolydex ointment that he was prescribed previously for it. It says it "expired" a little over a year ago, so I was wondering if it would be okay to use? I'm sure the potency has decreased, but is there any dangers with using it?

    Thanks!

    If it was me, I'd use it.  You can always call the vet's office and ask them if it's good to use.
