    Default Eye Wash

    What kind of sterile eye drops are good to use on your bulldogs? Is there a specific brand ? I am just wondering.

    I use Baush & Lomb Gentle Sensitive Eyes Plus for a general flush. When Emma scratched her eye her vet had me use a gel drop. I bought Systane Gel Drop Lubricant Eye Gel and got it at Walgreen's I think. Probably can get it just about anywhere I imagine. That worked wonderfully.

    I've been using this ointment on my bully. My cat scratched her eyelid. I've been giving her this ointment that I got from my vet. I took her to the vet today for a follow up and shots and the vet stated her eye looks way much and much better than before. I still see some redness at times. I will take some pics today and upload them so you guys can see it. She does not blink or it doesn't bug her. It was nothing big the vet stated. I look at other bullies around here I see some with WHITE BRIGHT EYES . lol

    I use Referesh over the counter eye drops from the Drugstore, but you can use pretty much any over the counter brand, if its safe for our eyes then generally it's safe for dogs as well. I also have a prescription for an eye ointment from the vet when Blossom had her cherry eye surgeries in the summer. I use it once in a while if I see her eyes are a little red or irritated, but I've only used it a couple of times.

    I use a all-in-one contact lense solution. It's inexpensive, sterile, and also moisturizing. Especially if we have been running around a dusty dog park or any real dirty activities, I flush their eyes out. It also does improve the whiteness of their eyes to flush out irritants. They are not big fans of mama putting drops in their eyes though.

    The eye flush would be great to do if there's been excessive windy days, lots of dust flying around, stuff like that.

    @luis323 I use Opti-Free Replenish which is a moisturizing contact lense solution. The ingredients are the same as the eye drops but is far more economical to buy a bottle of lense solution. I am in Canada so not sure if the same brands are available to you. Don't use a solution meant to remove protein but an all in one rinse solution. A plain saline solution would also work for rinsing but won't moisturize the eye.

    I hope little CoCo's eyes are better.
