Dog's Eyes Are Watery and Itchy
by Laura R.
(Laporte, MN, USA)
Zeus has always had watery eyes. He stays in a heated kennel with 2 other dogs and 2 cats. Last week he started having heavily watering eyes and itching at them with his paws.
It is very cold here and I thought he was doing that because of the cold. It is between 45 degrees and 60 degrees in the kennel. He stays inside except when going for a walk or to the bathroom.
Both eyes are affected but his right eye seems to cause him the most discomfort. There is light greenish "boogers" in his eyes.
Is there something I can do for him to make him comfortable?
I used some Genteal eye gel that I use for dry eyes. After talking to my boyfriend, decided not to use it again. I brought him inside last night so he wouldn't be shivering. It was -45 degrees. He is eating and drinking like normal. His nose is dry also.
Hi is a 15 month old Olde English Bulldogge. We've had him since he was 4 months.
