Hi, JACustomer. Most detergents are easily removed from the eye and the pet suffers no long-term effects. Try a cool compress on his eye for 5 minutes every hour for the next few hours.

If its not greatly reduced with the degree of irritation tomorrow, please make sure that he sees your vet to ensure that an ulcer has not formed on the cornea. You may see a glazed or white-ish appearance on the cornea if this happens. And this requires an exam and treatment from your vet promptly for the best results.

Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to use the star rating system at the top of the page to leave a rating for me. Until this is done, the website will not compensate me for helping you.

Ok,a compress,do you mean like a towel?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

You can use a wash cloth or kitchen towel. Something similar. You can either use a few crushed up ice cubes in this towel or just cool water. You want to make sure that it's chilly on the skin but not overly cold. If it hurts against your skin, let it warm up a little.
