Simple wounds will be treated with an Elizabethan collar to prevent your dog from scratching, along with prescription antibiotic or atropine eye drops. Antibiotic eye drops treat bacterial infections, while atropine eye drops dilate your dog’s pupil and help relieve pain. In some cases, your veterinarian will prescribe a soft contact lens to protect the wound.

I lost my glasses months ago, and still haven’t taken the time to go and get a new pair. It’s no surprise, then, that with all that goes on in our lives, the ocular health of our dogs is something we probably don’t think enough about. Like our own eye issues, dog eye problems can come out of nowhere and subject our dogs to rapid and serious complications. Regular, vigilant attention to dog eyes can alert us to the onset of dog eye infection. Did you know that humans carrying the bacterial form of pink eye can actually transmit the infection to dogs?

Dry eye (KCS in dogs) is a disorder of the eye glands that produce the liquid part of tears. Dogs with KCS don't produce enough tear film to keep their eyes adequately lubricated. This causes a dog's cornea and conjunctiva to become dry, thickened, red, irritated and inflamed. If not diagnosed and managed, KCS can lead to painful corneal ulceration, eye infection, impaired vision, and even blindness. In most cases, the cause of KCS in dogs is unknown, but an autoimmune condition is believed to take place. KCS may also occur secondary to general anesthesia, trauma, and prior surgical removal of the third eyelid gland. The use of antibiotics and many diseases like hypothyroidism, canine distemper, Cushing's Disease, Addison's Disease, and diabetes may also play a role in KCS. Signs of KCS include excessive squinting or blinking, light sensitivity, eye redness, swollen inflamed eyelids, protrusion of the third eyelid, dull dry cornea, or thick yellow or green discharge. Definitive diagnosis requires a veterinary exam. While various over-the-counter products can be used to lubricate the eyes, including and , a medication that requires a prescription from a veterinarian such as is best for treating this condition.A common eye disease in dogs, corneal ulceration is defined as a scratch or break in the cornea. This may occur secondary to trauma, infections, and less commonly as a result of an inner eye disease. Corneal ulceration is seen more in dog breeds with protruding eyes, such as the Pekinese and Shih Tzu breeds. Symptoms include holding the eye closed, light sensitivity, redness, eye discharge, and sometimes clouding of the cornea. Diagnosis is typically made by a physical exam, but definitive diagnosis requires veterinary application of fluoroscein dye. Topical antibiotics are used to treat corneal ulceration. In serious cases, or those that are non-responsive to topical antibiotics, surgery may be needed.The conjunctiva is the delicate membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelids and covers the outer layer of the eye. When it becomes inflamed or infected, it often leads to what is commonly known as pink eye. Conjunctivitis is the most common eye problem in dogs, and it usually heals without complication if properly treated. If left untreated, it may spread to deeper areas of the eye. Symptoms include red, inflamed eyelids stuck together, and/or thick yellow discharge from the affected eye. Conjunctivitis can have many causes from irritants/allergies (grass, trees, dander, ragweed, mold, pollens) to fungal, viral, and bacterial infections. Canine Distemper is another common cause of secondary conjunctivitis in dogs. While it is difficult to prevent conjunctivitis, in most cases, topical antibiotics will provide a cure. Allergy medication, low allergy diets (when given long term), and fatty acids may also help. Signs of an eye infection can also include: pawing or rubbing of their eyes, scratching the head around the eye area and/or discharge from one or both eyes. When infected, the whites of your dog’s eye may also appear more pinkish or red than normal.
