Orson always has lots of eye boogies, I remove 2-3 everyday. In the morning he always has at least one HUGE glob in the corner of one of his eyes. THe morning boogie is like a glob of thick snot........(I know GROSS)
I have mentioned this to the vet, and he says it's normal.........I just wanted to hear from you guys that your dogs have this too! Orson is still a baby (turning 8 months soon) so I was wondering if it is age related or what.
Oakley, (almost 6 months) gets them really bad too... I'm constantly wiping her eyes... My 5 year old got them a lot when he was younger but not so much now... dunno if this helps just wanted to let you know you're not the only one
Java seemed to have them more when she was young (she's 20 mos now) and they seem to be worse during allergy season. We are still trying to get rid of the fine plaster dust that's floating around from new construction and I'm sure that doesn't help matters.
If it gets really crusty (sorry, that's the only way to describe it) and the lower lid seems unusually red/inflamed check w/ the vet - dogs can give each other conjunctivitis (pink eye) when in contact @ the dog park.
Ours also had them during our first two years...It seems around when we changed a season, it would happen. But now, we seldom have anything major at all. I wonder if its more of an allergic reaction that they need to be accustomed to after a while...and then it goes away...who-knows
