Eye issue

My dobe has a clear mucus in both eyes. I took him to the vet and they gave me a steroid to put in his eyes. They think it's just allergies but I can afford to keep taking him to the vet. Any suggestions on this?

I was always told clear eye boggers are normal. When they turn green or yellow you start to worry. Are they eye boogies? Or like a film? What do you mean by mucus?

As long as the goop is clear or grey I wouldn't worry about it--Dobes have a relatively deep set eye and fluid, normal fluid tends to accumulate, especially if they've been asleep--I use a Q-tip and lift it out.

I've been doing it for my Dobes for over 50 years. If the goop is green or yellow it's probably an infection and then the dog should go to the vet.

Yeah it's clear but it seems like I am cleaning it out every day. It used to be just one eye but now it's both. These are my 1st dobes so I didn't know if it's normal. Never had a dog that has had it

Clear eye crap every morning . Going back for years (decades?).

I don't even wipe them out anymore. Within a half hour, they are sitting on the muzzle and I remove them with tissue.

On the other hand, if your pup appears to have an infection, such as conjunctivitis, you may want to have a vet look at it and prescribe an anti-biotic optic ointment.

Does he have any other allergies? I'm just wondering why they went straight to allergies as a cause.

Food allergies can cause eye discharge and so can dry eyes. My boy kept having an eye discharge in one eye which was not normal for him. I kept watching it and then the other eye started. He began rubbing his head on the couch and carpet, so I took him in. They ran the schirmer eye test and he had developed dry eye. I have to put gel eye drops in his eyes twice a day now.
