Hi there. This is Dr. G. Thank you for reaching out to Just Answer. I understand that Josh is having itchiness of the eyes for a couple of days. Have you tried giving him anything at home?
My husband tried some allergy eye drops that we have (human)
Ok, so it does sound like allergies, especially with both eyes being effected. However, we can't rule out something more serious like an injury to the cornea so please be sure to have him checked by his vet when you can. At home, you can keep the eyes clean with ophthalmic saline rinse, warm compresses every 8 hours for any swelling and Benadryl at 1 mg per pound of body weight every 8 hours. For maintenance, in the future, giving Zyrtec could help prevent some allergic responses. I hope this helps!! Keeps me posted on how Josh does!
Thank you very much; this is quite helpful
Oh great!! Have a wonderful day!
You as well!
