Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

While treating the eyes directly with Cyclosporine is the treatment of choice, dog compliance is a common issue. Therefore, if Keeta just won't allow you to treat her in this way, then it would be worth speaking to her vet about Atopica. This is an oral version of Cyclosporine and can be used to manage autoimmune tear duct disease for situations like this.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
