Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

It looks as if part of your question was deleted for some reason but I assume that MacGiver has an eye discharge and you'd like to know if there are any over the counter products which will be safe to use in her eye.

If the discharge is greenish or yellowish in color, then there may be an infection present which would require topical medications that would have to be dispensed by your vet. However, there are a number of human otc products which will be acceptable to use.

I typically treat 3-4 times a day for 7-10 days or as long as needed.

The Systane products listed below can be used,, but the ones with vasoconstrictors, such as naphazoline should be avoided. These products are labeled as "taking the red out" or for "red eye".
Genteal PM
Refresh PM
Tears Naturale Nighttime
Systane Nighttime
Systane Ultra lubricant sterile eye drops
Soothe Nighttime
Advanced Eye Relief Nighttime
Hypotears ointment
Akwa Tears ointment

I hope this helps. Deb
