Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. This green discharge form only one eye usually indicates an injury or infection in that eye that has caused inflammation. For now, the best thing you can do is to apply Artificial tears to this eye every 4-6 hrs. This is available over the counter at the pharmacy by Bausch and Lomb and will help flush away any irritants or bacteria that may be present. If this is not enough after a day, your vet wil have to examine Chester's eye and apply a stain to be sure that there is not a corneal ulcer which could be very serious for sweet Chester and require intensive treatment. Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
