We are quite sick huh ....Dogperson!!!! Ba ha ha ha
I'm not going to answer on the grounds it may incriminate me.
I also squeeze the eyelids slightly shut to make the goob....um...stick out? a little more.
Got it! Tried it - it works!I'm not working with the inner eyelid--just the outer ones--sorta between the dog's iris/pupil and the goober...umm...on the nose side...thumb on the lower lid, forefinger on the top lid...balls of fingers only, no nails...and quickly.........
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I'm not going to take a picture of that to post here...I'm just not.
I thought ..... hoped it was seasonal. But w/ all the ice we have it got worse!Actually allergies to things in the environment happen much more often that true food allergies in dogs. Of course, if your dog was clear just a little while ago and only now has symptoms you may get lucky in ID'ing the culprit. But sometimes the dog is allergic to something that is seasonal (like people's hay fever) so it's possible that the change he is reacting to is actually some pollen or mold or whatever (though it is winter, so that might be unlikely.)
If you do decide to run a limited diet trial, you need to find a food that he has no symptoms with and then add protein sources one by one with a month or more between new foods.
