Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. In order to give an informative and concise answer, it may take a few minutes before I respond back to you, so don't be alarmed if you don't hear back immediately if you have responded back to me within 10 minutes of my response. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
What does the discharge look like?
How much discharge is it?
Any sneezing or coughing?
Any redness or swelling associated with the eyes?
Thanks for the information. The safest thing to try is an artificial tears or eye lubricating ointment. If it is just allergy related, the eyes tend to dry out. Keeping them lubricated can help. If the symptoms continue, though, I would have your vet check it out. There could be a mild infectious conjunctivitis or just a severe enough allergy that she may need a topical ophthalmic steroid ointment to control it. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
