Refresh Optive Mega-3 Eye Drops

Manufactured by Allergan

Allergan’s Refresh Optive Mega-3 eye drops treat eye dryness resulting from meibomiam gland dysfunction and providing comfort and relief with a low-blur, preservative-free formula that contains flaxseed oil. The eye drops support 3 layers of the tear film damaged by eye dryness, while HydroCell technology supports hydration and maintains the volume of cells on the ocular surface. This lipid-enhanced lubricant treats the signs and symptoms of eye dryness and helps prevent tears from evaporating. The drops also contain carboxymethylcellulose sodium at 0.5% strength, glycerin at 1%, and polysorbate 80 at 0.5%.



Naturals Baby Cough Syrup

Manufactured by Zarbee’s

Zarbee’s has launched baby cough syrup formulas to help soothe coughs caused by dry throat, hoarseness, and irritants. The products were developed for infants aged 12 to 24 months and contain dark honey to soothe. Honey is also a natural antioxidant that supports overall health and well-being. The syrups come in natural cherry, grape, and are free of alcohol, artificial flavors and sweeteners, drugs, dyes, and gluten, according to the company’s website.



Hemp Oil For Dogs

Manufactured by Pet Releaf

Pet Releaf has launched 2 new products for dogs: a hemp oil at a 750-mg strength for extra-large and large dogs and another at 500 mg for large dogs, both containing cannabidiol (CBD) and organic coconut oil. Herbicide- and pesticide-free, the oils are designed to help support normal inflammatory response and help alleviate joint discomfort and situational stress and promote calmness and overall well-being. One of the main adverse events of CBD in dogs is drowsiness, which should wear off within 9 hours after the animal’s body processes it, according to the company’s website. Pet Releaf advises checking with a veterinarian if a CBD supplement is added to a dog’s daily routine.
