Yes, Dave, ketorolac opthalmic ointment (Acular, e.g.) is another nonsteroidal antiinflammatory product useful in dogs. It's primarily used to control uveitis as I suspect that the Voltaren was prescribed for. Dosing of ketorolac is usually 4 times daily to decrease inflammation. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
