Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

There are a number of conditions that can cause this white discharge from Oreo's eyes. This could be that when they age, their conformation changes and this causes more pressure of the skin over his eyes. It may also be that there is irritation from hair or infection that could cause this. For now, the only thing you can do that will help is to apply a few drops of Artificial Tears, available at the pharmacy over the counter by Bausch and Lomb, every 4-6 hrs. This will flush away any irritants and bacteria that are causing Oreo this discomfort. You can also give Oreo aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to ease his disocmfort while the medication is working.

It would be good to have your vet examine Oreo at some point especially if this medication is not enough to help your poor old friend.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
