Hello all. I'm new to the site/forum so please forgive me if this is an old topic. Our bulldog Lola (11 months) often has red eyes, which leads me to believe she has allergies. I can't figure out what she could be allergic to as we've changed her food twice now (finally found a winner that cleared up her skin), but I've heard that plastic eating/drinking bowls can cause irritation. Has anyone noticed a bad reaction to plastic bowls?
Re: Red eyes
Use steel or porcelain bowls only. She could have seasonal allergies - my Nigel does and he has red eyes sometimes. I give him Benadryl regularly and my vet said that was ok. 25 mg pills and since he weighs 53 lbs he takes 2 per dose.
You can try a moisturizing eye drop like Blink, see if that helps. You can also flush the eyes with eye wash, I use the one from Bausch & Lomb. If the eyes are irritated ate they also swollen? This can cause their lower eyelids to curl inward, irritating the eyes even more (entropion).
