Inveterinary medicine, diclofenac sodium is used for treatment of uveitis following surgery on the eye orother causes of uveitis especially when corneal infection is suspected or in diabetic patients whose insulinregulation could be altered by the systemic uptake of topical corticosteroids. Diclofenac can be combinedwith topical corticosteroids for better control of uveitis in animals when the condition is severe.Suggested Dosages/Precautions/Adverse Effects - Prior to surgery: One drop 4 times at 20 minuteintervals.
