Customer Question
Our dog is having...

Our dog is having some issues with his eyes. He was fine this morning then all of a sudden he couldn't open his eyes. And when he does open them the third eyelid is covering up half of his eye and his pupils look a bit more cloudy than normal. Also his eyes look a bit goopy. He's acting normal and I have checked his vitals and they are fine it's just his eyes are bothering him. We've tried just flushing them out but that seems to only help for a few minutes. Have any ideas?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Deuce

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Not that I can think of. He is a Pit Doberman mix if that helps at all

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand that Deuce is keeping his eyes closed, and there is a cloudy appearance in his pupils, and also mucus in both eyes. Is that a correct summary?
