My Boy Danzig's right eye is really red (the white part) and he has some clear discharge. Does anyone know of anything I can do for him? Maybe one of my cats got him in the eye but I can't see a scratch or anything.

I wiped his eyes clean with boiled salt water (colled) and a cotton ball.

I'm (so people tell me) still looking very good for my vintage (all me own - mostly brown - hair, and my original teeth!!) - As a 1956 model I'm still quite sporty, but the bodywork has seen better days, the piston rings are a bit worn and the paint job is a little dull!!.

HI, Aloseth.

My daughter's dog Reggie had a very similar eye last week. The 'white' part of his eye was completely red and with the discharge too. We don't know what he did, but she bathed it like you and the next day it was much better. And a day or so after that it was fine and normal coloured. I think he (Reg) may have popped a blood vessel somehow.

Obviously if you're concerned you'll have to call the vet, but you might want to wait 24 hours if he's otherwise ok (Reg was fine, no discomfort or anything.)

Hello, again, Aloseth! The same thing happened with Griffin --- again, maybe he got something in it or scratched it. I would only worry if you notice any swelling or the discharge gets gummy and yellow like pus.

But again, if you're concerned and it lasts longer than a few days, see your vet.

Kudos!

Thanks Guys, I am just a worried Mommy, but I will see how it is after work. I'm sure he's fine. Thanks again!

My dog zady had the exact same thing last year and I tried everything. I took her to the vet and they said she had eye allergies and prescribed some eye drops and within 2 days her eyes cleared up and they have stayed that way since. I can't remember the name of the drops but I believe they cost only 5 dollars.

It's called congunctivitis. Same thing people get and yes it is highly contagious.

It could be congunctivitis or it could be a small scratch. In either case unless it gets worse, bathing with sterile water or a sterile dilute solution of boric acid is the best (get instructions from your pharmacis for the boric acid). Often this works better than messy ointments etc from the vet. My last dog a yellow lab tended to get sore eyes and I at first always took him to the vets and then a breeder get me the ab ove advice and that worked better.
