Customer Question
Hi! My six year...

Hi! My six year old Labradoodle has a sore red eye with a crusty yellowish booger in the corner that I remove once a day ish. I took her to my vet about three weeks ago and he gave me chloramphenicol ointment which fixed it for a few days but it keeps coming back as soon as I stop using it. I was just trying to work out if I can use human chlorsig ointment on her

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the Labradoodle's name?

Her name is Lola

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

No she’s otherwise really healthy and happy. She’s wire haired too, not as woolly as a normal labradoodle
