is that normal?? or should it worry me?? I have to clean her eyes from the nasty slimey eye boogers very very often.
It's clear sometimes and yellowish other times. I have to clean them like 3 or 4 times a day if not more. She doesnt act sick, though... I guess I could call the vet and see what they recommend for safety precautions.it could be an infection , My girl had that recently was wondering why I had to clean them a few times a day took her to the vet and got some ointment we put on a couple times a day and cleared up within a few days. cleaning them once or twice a day can be normal anything more id get it checked out. Is it green? clear? is her eye red at all? could be a blocked tear duct could be dirt you can try a saline solution and flush it out a bit see if ti helps.
She does play in the sand a lot...my boy gets eye boogies on the regular. i clean them once or twice a day. but more often when it's windy and lots of dust is kicked up. or when the air quality is bad.
if we've been hiking dusty trails i come home and use my contact saline solution to rinse his eyes out. that seems to help alot.
you can check his eyes by gently pulling down on his face high on the cheek, directly under his eye. the tissue should be light pink without any blood vessels pushing out of the surface. if it looks inflamed, i would rinse and ask a vet for ointment.
if one eye produces more gunk than the other, that's also an indicator of infection. but if it's only contamination, saline rinse will make a big difference.
:goodpost: how much eye boogers are we talking about? just a little in the corners for full on gunk in the eyes? If it is just a little in the corners then I might not worry. If it is a lot of green or yellow then you could have a sinus infection for conjunctivas. So my question is how much discharge?could be a sinus infection or conjunctivas
