Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am so sorry Teddy has this discharge! I can give you some basic guidelines but if there is no change or they progressively have drainage I would advise a veterinary exam to ensure there is no medical cause for the discharge that requires attention.- Saline flush for contact lenses to flush the eyes out, particularly after dinner and before bedtime to remove the debris that builds up throughout the day in the eyes- Benadryl with dinner at 1 mg/ pound which might cause mild sedation but if there is an allergic component it will help reduce the amount and the frequency- Moist compresses (cool) on the eyes if the discharge is progressingIf there is worsening, the discharge is red, yellow, green, increased rubbing and irritation then it is time to have a veterinary exam but if it is primarily at night and both eyes it sounds like there is an allergic component to the discharge and the above recommendations should helpPlease let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with today!
