Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Do you have pictures of his eyes showing their glassy and red appearance?
2) Is he still eating and drinking well?
3) Is it hot in your area?
4) Any vomiting or diarrhea?
5) Does he have a history of ingesting foreign bodies?
