Is there a safe over-the counter eyewash for dogs

This answer was rated:

Daughter''s Yorkie got dog shampoo in her eyes. We''ve washed them out 3 times with water. They are opening more, but it''s 11pm; and we are worried about effects and watching her all night.
Thank you.


The safest eye wash we use in an emergency is Plain Saline Eye Drops that are used for contact lenses. You do have to make sure that it is preservative free and it should help clear the eyes until your little one can be see by the Vet for a follow up in the AM. Joan
