I notice that in the beginning you say you are applying "tobramycin ointment" but the bottle says "solution". I hope there is a second video about ointment as well! great tips, otherwise!

Good catch Michaela! Applying an ocular ointment is similar in many ways. I still would recommend approaching from behind and toweling for gentle restraint if the patient is a cat or small dog. Usually, with ointments, I put the amount directed on the globe along the lower lid and then close and open the patients eye a few times, ensuring that the ointment covers the surface of the affected eye. We will definitely consider adding an ointment specific video in the future!
