Dog eye infection

Customer Question

My dog has a low grade eye infection that wonÕt go away with
the vetÕs goo. My housemate says his use to have the same
problem, until he cleaned the tear ducks with a certain oil fro a
week, and then it finally went away. He can not remember the
type of oil, however.

Motor is an Akita / Belgian Shepard mix, about 30 months old,
and otherwise in good health, with all current shots. The
constant eye boogers have been present for going on two weeks
now, and I just want to get rid of them, and get his eye's healthy
again.

Thanks.

 I have never heard of an oil that will help with an eye infection.


If the medication is not working, you should return to the vet so that they prescribe medication that will work.


Let me know if you still have questions.

Reply to Tammy Falkner's Post: I have been to the vet three times, its not working, and getting
VERY expensive. I was looking for an answer that was a bit more
proactive than "Don't know what you are talking about, go back
to the vet."
Expert:  DanaDVM replied 11 years ago.

 If you have been to the vet three times have they told you medically what is wrong with the eyes? Conjuntivitis? Tear duct obstruction? Akitas are bad for entropion???

If I had a diagnosis of some kind I can help you out.

Reply to Dr. Vamvakias's Post: I'm sorry that nobody seems to know about the cleaning method
my housemate used, he was so happy with the way it worked. I
guess I will just have to find a different vet.

 That may be your only option.
