Drainage from her eyes. Ruby and she is about 4 years old.

Customer Question
White drainage from her...

White drainage from her eyes.

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

Ruby and she is about 4 years old

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

She also suffers from pemphigus folleaceous. It has been going on for about a year, but finally seems to be getting better over most of her skin, except now she has this white drainage from her eyes. As soon as we wipe it away, more comes out. She has been taking cyclosporine.

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

The white drainage may be secondary to irritation or dry eye.

Can you send me a photo of the eyes- that will help me a lot.
