Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!If your dog has been diagnosed with dry eye or KCS then there are a few things you can do. - Talk to your veterinarian about increased concentration of the cyclosporin if you are on 0.5 or 1% which will slow progression of the disease- Possibly add in tacrolimus which is another medication that helps increase lubrication of the eyes- Refresh eye drops between the medicated drops to maintain hydration of the eyes and therefore limit the buildup you are seeing which is the body's way of treating the dry eyeI hope this information helps but please let me know how else I can assist you both today If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
