Dog Eye infection/Greenish Oozing Discharge from Eye
Our 5 year old mixed breed dog (amstaff terrier & vizsla & other mix) has gooey green discharge coming from his eyes and one eye appears to be clouding up. We have been wiping them daily with clean gauze dampened with sea salt water solution. The relief is short lasting and doesn't help the cloudiness at all.
I really want to get him better but we would like to avoid taking him in as we have not been able to find any holistic vets in the area (Alaska). We will certainly take him in to a local vet if necessary though.
We have access to some eye ointments and are hoping that sharing the pictures might be enough to help figure out if we should try any of them.
C) neomycin/polymyxin B Sulfates, Bacitracin Zinc and hydrocortisone acetate
I think we may also have the above ointment (C) without the cortisone.
We have had chronic issues with his skin as well that involves dry, scaly, thick looking skin with hair loss but I figured I would start with the acute problem first and work on one issue at a time unless it would be helpful to address them together.
We also have another dog at home that is not affected by any of this at all.
Thanks in advance!
