Issue with Eye

My 11-year-old male Doberman has some itchiness occurring around his right eye and its even started to become crusty as well as forming somewhat of a callus appearance from the itching.

I've attempted Benadryl and even vitamin eye gel applying several times a day. Does anyone have recommendations for over the counter solutions? I will be headed to the vet if something doesn't work soon but figured I would reach out. I live in Florida so this could be related to multiple items and he's had this in the past but it will usually clear up. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to DT Hudson --- From the Racing Capital of the World

First thing that I thought of was Pink eye = ( conjunctivitis ) But Pink eye , as far as I know -just don't go away - Your boy could have something in it or could be enviro .

I think that I would take him to the Vet as son as possible - Pink eye can cause damage to the Corina ( If I remember right ) and that's not a good thing . I will guess that the Vet may treat it with some kind of eye drop ( Antibiotic ) type .

I have had to go to the Doc for something in my eye before and it is very uncomfortably , really , it hurts like hell . I vote Vet trip as soon as possible

Good luck .

I don't mess around with eyes either--an immediate trip to my vet is the first thing I'd do--and one time that ended up with my vet sending me down to a vet opthamologist--(immediately, today was what my vet said as he picked up the phone to tell that vet I was on my way. Turned out that my vet suspected what was going on with my dog was something that could so damag the cornea very quickly and result in a dog blind in one eye. The cure was pretty easy but it was specific and used a med that wasn't one of the common antibiotics.

Same...I go in same day with any eye issue. In fact, we've had a couple of times where I wasn't sure it was "that bad" and it turned out my dogs could have had permanent eye damage if I'd waited.

I hope you got in ASAP.
