My Dog Hank's Poor Eyes
About 2 1/2 weeks ago I brought my 16 week (at the time) lab/Shepard pup to his vet with what looked like droopy red eyelids. The vet prescribed 5ml of Maitrol eye drops to be administered twice daily in both eyes.
Presently one eye has cleared up almost completely but the other has been good some days and bad others.. some days good at times but bad later... and his eyes have what look like really thick tears always in the corner of his eyes... like where tears come out (I always clean them away).
He also has giardia and he was prescribed some white powder that I put in his food ... and then some pills that I had to feed him 3 times a day (I can't remember the names of them ).
All of his shots are up to date and he is a big healthy boy.. 37 lbs and on Preformatrin Ultra puppy food. He eats fine.
He doesn't rub his eyes and it doesn't seem to really bother him.
Thanks for your help.
