Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in the treatment of certain types of anterior uveitis and iritis. It is particularly helpful in the control of chronic uveitis where long-term topical corticosteroids may be detrimental. It is also given as a pre-operative and post-operative anti-inflammatory medication to reduce uveitis associated with eye surgery.
Ketorolac is widely used for treating seasonal allergic conjunctivitis in people and may have similar benefits in dogs and cats.
