Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear that your boy has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
Shampoo is a big eye irritant and can even lead to ulceration of the eye. This is not an uncommon occurrence after a bath. If the eye was fine before the bath then I suspect that he may have gotten some of the shampoo in his eye. What you could do is rinse the eye twice daily with sterile saline such as that used for contact lenses. Never use medicated eye drops like Visine. If he start squinting, rubbing his eye or the eye seems to get worse then I would have him seen by a vet.
In the future what you can do to try to prevent any problems during a bath is apply artificial tears ointment in the eyes before his bath. This is not medicated and is basically just a lubricate but the ointment helps protect the eye should any shampoo get in there.
I hope this helps and his eye gets better soon. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue. If you have no additional questions please take a few moments to provide a rating so that I am compensated by just answer for assisting you today.
