Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. IF YOU GET REQUEST FOR A PHONE CALL, IT IS FROM THE WEBSITE AND NOT MYSELF. JUST IGNORE IT. My concern is that she got some soap in her eye and developed a corneal ulcer. It is a common injury with baths. If that is the case, then she actually needs to be on a topical eye antibiotic ointment to prevent infection and help it heal quickly. Even if superficial, some ulcers can progress to deep ulcers or non-healing ulcers, which may permanently affect vision. You can try rinsing her eye with a sterile eye irrigating solution from the store, but my best advice is to have your vet check out the eye, stain it to look for an ulcer and get her on the appropriate medications. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. IF YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH MY ANSWER, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get compensated for helping you, and we can still continue our conversation after rating. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Asking more specific questions usually helps a lot. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
