eye problem

Hi all,

So Kane recently has started to have some fluid building up in his eyes. At first it was just one, now the other has started. They are also showing signs of redness. The fluid is "snot" like and sometime a light greenish or white. He does not seem to be in any discomfort and he never rubs them.

Anyone had this problem before? I will be taking him to the vet if it gets worse. I have been using eye drops which does clear up the redness.

How old is he? My boy had this last summer when he was six months old and eventually it went away on it's own. I gave him the polysporin eye drops.

I'd get him checked by a vet to make sure there is no foreign object in there.

its probably just eye snot.. its normally food or environmental...related.

not to worry if its clear or cloudy..

wipe it away with a tissue..

get him checked out if you are unsure but its quite common !!

If the eyes are red, I would recommend a vet visit.
Corneal ulcerations/abrasions can be very serious if they get infected. And as pdubois64 said, they can get foreign objects (plant awns, tiny fragments of plant material) caught under the 3rd eyelid and cause irritation.

"eye boogers" are quite common with dobes, dakota gets them daily. They don't bother her at all, and she got a clean bill of health from the vet, so I'm not concerned about it, I just wipe them off and keep going. After doing some research, the common belief seems to be that it's allergy related, i've heard of dogs all over the country getting them, in all different areas that have very different plant life. But I haven't been able to find a solid answer as to why it happens. So, I'm not exactly sure what it is, but unless Dakota's eyes were red, or it was bothering her, I won't be concerned about it.

Sounds to me like it could be some type of conjunctivitis in the eye and your pup may need some Terramycin Ointment to clear it up. I would have your vet take a look at it. I always keep a couple of tubes of the stuff laying around.

If it is clear eye gobbies, don't worry about it but if it is green, I would look into it further
