My dog has a film discharge I've never seen before..I have a picture but not sure how to share it on here...

Hello and thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.

Where on her body is the film?

To post the picture on here, use the tool bar icon that looks like a "paper clip."

Hi sorry, it's in her eye. It's not over her eye, but under it.

It looks like mucous from inflammation?

Can you wipe it away? Or flush it out with eye drops or eye saline?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

With my finger I tried to wipe it away thinking it was normal discharge. Since it didn't move as easily, I didn't want to force it since I didn't know what it was exactly.


I wasn't overly concerned and was just going to watch it, but the more I thought about it, I just began to freak out, if you know what I mean.

Can you run to the drug store, and buy some eye flush saline, and try to flush it out of the eye? Then let me know what happens? The saline flush will be in the eye care aisle or in the first aid aisle of the drug store. It is inexpensive.

I have some! And that seemed to came out super easily!


Thank you!

Great! Smile Most likely she got some dust, or allergens, in her eye which caused more inflammation than normal. If it happens again, you know what to do.
