Hi... so what's the answer Doc! :)
Expert:  Dr. Andy replied 2 years ago.
Hello, Any time there is a chronic eye discharge, there is a real concern for possible conjunctivitis, a corneal ulcer (eye trauma like a scratch), or KCS (keratoconjunctivitis sicca - dry eye condition.So, you need to get in to a vet for sure. They can do a simple eye stain test and schirmer tear test to quickly ascertain the cause of why there is persistent discharge. More important, to help get a appropriate topical medication to start treating the secondary infection.The most common eye tests performed by your veterinarian: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/fluorescein-stain/page1.aspx.http://www.petplace.com/dogs/schirmer-tear-test/page1.aspx.http://www.petplace.com/dogs/tonometry-in-dogs/page1.aspx Hope that info helpsGood Luck!Dr. Andy
