Product Description

Can-C™ K9 Eye Drops: Works within weeks to improve canine vision without surgery

Can-C™K9 eye drops are based on the original N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) formula used with great success in humans. They work to shrink cataracts and normalize vision in dogs; of a recent study, 96% of dogs treated with Can-C™K9 saw notable improvements within weeks.

The original Can-C™ formula may also see other benefits in humans due to its added synergistic lubricants, and the same can be said for dogs – discolouration of the lenses was seen to improve, and even dogs with longstanding cataracts saw a vision improvement.

How do Can-C™ K9 eye drops work?

Can-C™K9 contains a form of the di-peptide carnosine, N-acetylcarnosine (NAC). This has been well documented for its properties to mop up free radicals, which are the root cause of tissue damage, aging, and cataracts.

Cataracts, which are caused by glycosylation (cross linking), cause vision loss and discomfort to sufferers, so it is important that steps are taken to shrink them, especially in the earlier stages. As the eye lens hardens and discolours over time, the vision gradually reduces. Whilst they are not normally painful, they can become irritated at an advanced stage or if they are present alongside another eye condition.

Can-C™ and Can-C™K9 work to deliver L-carnosine directly to the aqueous humour, the transparent fluid found in the anterior and the posterior chambers of the eye. This is important, as other forms of carnosine are broken down by the naturally occurring enzymes in the eye. Once the L-carnosine is present in this fluid, it conveys proteins and antioxidant protection to the lens, negating the effect of free radicals.

In addition, the drops help to lubricate the dog’s eyes and reduce inflammation – this naturally rebalances the eyes and slows down the growth of cataracts.

After ongoing use, the cataracts start to shrink from the outside in, reversing vision loss. No surgery should be required, and even dogs with ongoing, longstanding cataracts have seen good results with Can-C™K9 eye drops.

What else is Can-C™ K9 used for?

In humans, good results have also been reported when using the original Can-C™ eye drops in certain eye conditions including:

  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Lubrication for contact lens wearers
  • Eye strain
  • Blurred vision
  • Corneal disorders
  • Vision complications from Diabetes

Whilst there is no definite research on whether Can-C™K9 can be used for other eye conditions in dogs, certainly their lubricant and anti-inflammatory properties will have benefits to comfort and vision.

Typical use of Can-C™ K9 Eye drops

We would always recommend seeking your veterinary practitioner’s advice before commencing a course of Can-C™K9 eye drops.

In humans, Can-C™ eye drops have been shown to have measurable effects within a month of use, but for maximum efficacy, it is recommended that administration continue for 3-5 months. N-actylcarnosine works best the sooner it is used after a cataract is detected.

Frequently Asked Questions About Can-C™ K9 Eye Drops

Disclaimer: Please note that only your own veterinary practitioner can determine the precise needs of your dog and their cataract impairment.

How long has Can-C™ and Can-C™K9 been on the market?

The original Can-C™ formula has been available in eye drop form since 2001 – it’s estimated in the time since, there have been over 50,000 cases documented of patients using Can-C™.

How are Can-C™ eye drops different to other NAC eye drops?

Can-C™ eye drops are the originals; they mimic the research and are the ONLY version that have been tested and approved by the institute that conducted the original clinical trials.

Can Can-C™ be used to treat cataracts in dogs and other pets?

Yes, in the form of Can-C™K9 eye drops. It has been extensively tested on not only dogs, but also rabbits, to ensure it is safe. It has also been found that the drops actually work faster in animals, because they do not have the enzyme carnosinase like humans do; carnosinase can inhibit the amount of active ingredient that reaches the eye, so this lack helps the eye drops be more effective. However, if the animal shakes their head or blinks, it can mean more product is lost – the bottom line is, Can-C™K9 eye drops are known to improve canine vision after only a few weeks.

What standard is Can-C™ manufactured to?

All variants of Can-C™ eye drops are made to pharmaceutical standards under cGMP and ISO9001 standards in an approved and licensed facility.

Where can I read clinical studies about Can-C™, Can-C™K9 and N-acetylcarnosine?

Storing Can-C™ K9 eye drops

Can-C™K9 eye drops should be kept in the warmest part of the fridge (i.e. the door) – especially opened bottles.

Always check with your veterinarian before administering Can-C™K9 eye drops.

  • As a preventative measure, 2 drops into each eye once a day may be a suitable regime for your dog.
  • As a treatment, two drops into the affected eye(s) twice a day may be an ideal regime – administering more than this will not give any additional benefit unless you feel a lot has been lost through blinking or the dog shaking their head.
  • It is recommended that you continue with N-acetylcarnosine eye drops even after the cataract has reduced or reversed, to prevent reoccurrence.

Can-C™  K9 side effects

To date, no serious side effects or contraindications have been noted in any of the clinical trials.

Can-C™ K9 (N-Acetylcarnosine eye drops for dogs) Testimonial

THANK YOU FOR MAKING CAN-C AVAILABLE!!! I am legally blind in one eye. When my ophthalmologist said I needed cataract surgery on my good eye, I was frightened. While it is a common procedure, having only one good eye, I didn’t want to risk it. For several years I tried a very expensive product that did nothing for it. Then I found Can-C. I have used it for 3-4 years, and have close to 20/20 vision in that good eye.

I’m 84 years old, and can still see well. It has kept the cataracts from progressing, and spared me the surgery. I dumped that ophthalmologist because for 3 or 4 years, all he said was that I really needed cataract surgery, and overlooked the fact that I needed new glasses. When using it, I do keep the drops in twice as long, and move my eyes around while closed. This is a fantastic product! I’m so glad I found it! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH. Geraldine
