Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Can you please attach pictures of the eyes themselves?
2) What color is the discharge from the eyes?
3) Is Carla on any medication?
4) Have any medications been tried?
5) Is she rubbing her eyes?
6) Is she indoor? outdoor? both?

I can attach pictures later. I'm not with her right now. The discharge ranges from clear to yellowish. No medication. She doesn't run them. They just stay matted. We got her from a friend. She is outdoors.
