Dog Squinting, Pink Eye with Mucus
Two mornings ago, I noticed my dog was squinting and she could not fully open one eye. She had mucus in the corner of her eye, and her eyes were pink.
I did some research and tried out saline solution. This morning, I noticed her eyes are still the same.
She does scratch her eyes every now and then, but she does not cry as if she's in pain. She can still see because I swing my hand in circles to see if she can follow it and she does.
I'm sure she got the infection from our basement, as it is being remodeled, and one of the workers left our basement door open and my dog went in there. There is a done of dust from the dry wall, cement, or insulation.
I fear that she might have injured herself from nails or got some of the itchy insulation in her eye.
Unfortunately I do not have a picture on hand, as I am at work trying to figure out my next move with her.
So to recap:
Both eyes are red
Left eye is discharging mucus
She can't fully open both eyes
She scratches the left eye often
No crying that indicates pain
She still has vision
It's been going on for 2 days
She is an English bulldog, about a year and half.
Thank you much in advance.
