Rebecca : Hello,
Rebecca : I am sorry to hear about your Westie.
Rebecca : My name is Regecca
Rebecca : Sorry!
Rebecca : My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.
Rebecca : This could be something simple, like an allergic reaction. But, it could also be an early warning of something more serious, such as glaucoma.
Rebecca : I never take chances with eyes. If a client calls and says there is an eye problem, I try to get them to bring the dog in right away. With things like glaucoma, the sooner you begin treatment the better.
Rebecca : Even if it is an allergic reaction, the only effective eyedrops are by prescription.
Rebecca : Until you can get him checked, you can use moist cool compresses to remove the discharge, and help with inflammation.
Rebecca : If his eyes seem to itch or he is rubbing them, Benedryl might help. If he is over 20 pounds, he could take 25 mg 2 to 3 times a day.
Rebecca : I am not seeing responses from you. I hope you can see what I am writing!
Rebecca : The website just tells me you went offline. I can try to connect with you another way.
