Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. It is possible that she may have gotten something in the eye or rubbed an ulcer on the cornea. If all you have is sterile antibiotic eye ointment (NO STEROIDS IN IT!), then that shouldn't harm anything. I would try getting some saline eye rinse first, though, and rinsing the eye out with that. If the eye starts to look worse, though, I wouldn't hesitate to get her to the vet sooner. If there is an ulcer, and it continues to get worse, it can affect vision. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
