Customer Question
My 85 lb 11...

My 85 lb 11 year old dog for the last 3 years has had very red inflammation of the third eye in connective tissue below the eye. Some days it's not so bad but some days it's bright red. I taking him to the vet they just keep giving him the same eye drops but they don't seem to help much. My vet says he has allergies but this is a year round thing for him. Can I give him Visine allergy eye drops or Clear Eye allergy eye drops. I dropped from the vet must soothe his eyes because he'll come to me when I pick up the bottle but they don't seem to make any difference with the redness.

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

Cooper

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Cooper?

No he's pretty healthy for an 11 year old dog. He still runs lap around the field by my house. His eyes look really painful but the BET and I have discussed the thing thoroughly. Drops obviously soothe but don't really help because eyes. I feel sorry for him he's always rubbing them with his paws

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Cooper has a chronic history of reddened conjunctiva and third eyelids. You want to know if you can give an eye medication such as Vision or Clear Eye drops. Is that a correct summary?

I meant Visine allergy drops or Clear Eye allergy drops which I have already
Dog Veterinarian: Scott Perry, Dog Veterinarian replied 9 months ago
Visible or Clear Eye are safe if used sparingly, although they are not used frequently in dogs so evidence is lacking. A proven safe option for allergies in dogs is using an antihistamine eye drop, which is also an over-the-counter medication. An example is Zaditor, which can be applied as 1-2 drops every 12 hours as needed.
