Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.

I am sorry for your concerns about Zanzibar's eye. Soap can be very irritating. You can flush his eye out with plain tap water, or for more comfort, you can use a saline solution made for contact lenses. Any brand available at your local pharmacy would be appropriate. Bathing the eyes 2-4 times daily should remove any residual soap & soothe the irritated eyes. You can also purchase an over the counter product called Vetericyn for eyes. This will help the eyes even more.

If any significant redness should occur in the eye(s), or after 24-48 hours the discharge has not improved, or Zanzibar has any pain in his eye manifested by significant squinting or tearing, you should have him examined by your veterinarian to rule out any corneal injury.

I hope this makes sense & you fid the information helpful. Pleas let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.
