    Default Eyes

    Zeus' has been "blinking" more with his left (my right if facing him) eye. I'm pretty sure it's allergy related. It does have drainage and I clean his face everyday. Is there some type of eye drops I can use to help him?

    You might want to get him checked for Entropian, just in case

    "Blink" Tears is a lubricating Eye Drop for humans. I used it for HRH When we first noticed her having probs with her eyes. The vet decided we should use a stronger tear producing prescription drop later on but the Blink did work fairly well. You could try that and see before proceeding if you'd like. Blink is available in Walgreens and CVS here.

    is he blinking or squinting? If he is squinting this is a sign of pain and he needs to be seen asap.

    However, not all will squint.

    Molly had eye booger issue and one day I noticed it looked cloudy. So I took her in. Only to find she had permanantly damaged her cornea. She had not one, but TWO ulcers, one was almost healed! I never realized it at all -- she showed no signs of pain, batted her eyes, noting what so ever, and this costed her some loss of her sight. It's not too noticeable but I see her walk into things occasionally.

    Okay I have a point to telling you this! LOL

    If you feel something is wrong, don't mess with the eyes. I am not in love with eye doctors either because I feel they charge way too much for what they do, ($150 to examine them put some dye in their eye? REALLY???) but now I won't even hesitate.

    Vegas has eye problems as well, but his are due to allergies (environmental) I have used the Blink lube drops that Bruce is talking about and I have also had his eyes checked with the dye ($100 here for the exam) no problems, just simply alleriges. When his eyes get extra squinty I do have an Rx from the vet, a steroid drop. Other than that I wipe his eyes a few times a day with a warm washcloth and give him benadryl when they get goopy, like @desertskybulldogs said, eyes are nothing to mess with, a trip to the vet can answer all your questions. Good Luck and I am hoping it is just allergies.

    They were just at the vet Wednesday thru Friday evening while I was away my mom picked them up.
    I would think they would have noticed something. Because while he was there they were to recheck his hot spots and the healing of them.
    I may call them tomorrow and see.
    In that photo he was squinting because I think the sun was in his eyes.
