    Eye boogies are a big problem for Piggy. She has chronic dry eye so the mucus and goop that tears normally wash out get stuck on her eyes. She has to have her eyes cleaned at least twice a day, four on others and have either medication dropped in or a gel based eye lubricant to keep her eyes happy. There are mornings where I feel like gagging cleaning her eyes out but it has to be done.

    @Lacey28 How did you know that your bulldog had ingrown hairs on her eyelids? our 10mo old Lola has boogies and really wet tear stains, and sometimes i see boogies and little hairs floating on her eyeballs. It's not a huge deal to manage the tear stains, but i wonder if its ingrown hairs and not allergies. i think her big teeth in the back are still growing in so she's probably tearing up due to teething still too.

    @desertskybulldogs is there any way to tell without going to the vet that there is an eye ulcer? both eyes seem to be equally wet, some floater boogies but mostly wet tear stains. sometimes i see a hair floating in her eye too. could the tears still be from teething (she's 10 months)? or likely allergies - should i start making some food changes, we just switched her to NBalpha lamb which has chicken in it, and ziwipeaks venison.

    Does that mean eye boogers are pretty common? I know in our house it's part of the daily toilet routine.

    Getting HRH on optimmune ointment for dry eye drastically improved her eye booger issues.
