Hi. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand that Scrappy has a red eye and yellow fluid coming from it. I am sorry to hear about this problem. How does the other eye look?

His other eye looks fine. He also has arthritis in his hips making it difficult for him to walk.

Thank you for that information. A red eye can be caused by a few different factors. One common cause is from trauma, which can be something as light as a small particle getting into the eye. Inflammation of the conjunctiva (i.e. pink part of the eye) will result in redness and yellow discharge. In addition to trauma, other causes could include a deficient tear production, or inflammation inside the eye (i.e. uveitis). Allergies are less likely to occur in one eye, but it is possible. You could apply a human over-the-counter antihistamine eye drop to reduce inflammation, but if the problem is from a low tear production or inflammation inside the eye, then a veterinarian visit is necessary.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If the antihistamine eye drop will work, you should see an improvement within 5-6 hours. If it is still red then Scrappy should definitely have a couple preliminary eye tests performed.

Do you have any questions about that?

He's used neomycin and polymyxin eye drops before that worked for him. Can u give him a prescription? Thank you.
Unfortunately, state laws prohibit me from writing prescriptions for patients I have not physically examined. That medication may work, but it would require a prescription from a veterinarian in your area.
