    Default Orion is having a crisis...please help!

    Today for some reason Orion's eye has been bothering her. She wants to rub it..and she is blinking and tearing up. I don't know if she scratched it or has something in it. I'm thinking of getting her an eye drop to help soothe it...any recommendations? I was thinking just some normal saline. We will be taking her to the vet, but I want to get her something until then. Any suggestions?

    oh no, poor little o. it could be so many different things! she could have gotten something in it while she was rubbing her face or scratched her cornea, or just simply irritated it! i hope it is nothing serious. butler had an ulcer on his cornea and now he has a large white scar on his eye. can't wait for the vet to fix/diagnose her. i would use a saline rinse to flush out her eye, and then a gel drop for itchy irritated sensitive eyes. good luck to miss o!

    Any over the counter eye drops? If her eye is scratched, would a gel sting her? @sheila

    the gels are just thicker and provide longer lasting lubrication for the eye, but i'm not sure what otc drops would be best. all the drops i have for But are medicated. i used a gel when i had an ulcer on my cornea and it gave me so much more relief than just me regular eye drops. they didn't sting near as bad as my antibiotic or steroid drops.

    i know dog's skin is a lot different than ours but i imagine their eyes are just as sensitive so people drops would be okay for emergencies, but i'm not a vet i sure wish i was though!

    No, never put human saline drops in just in case there is a scratch- (that will sting it) you should get some eye wash and lubricating eye ointment from your local drug store until you get her to the vet. If it gets worse get her in ASAP.

    I always keep eye wash from the vet on hand and then Terramycin Ophthalmic Ointment - 1/8 oz | Pet Supplies, Horse Supplies, Dog Supplies | KVsupply.com is the eye ointment to use on eyes, there are some eye drops/ointment that will do more damage then good if there is an ulcer in the eye. Use the terramycin until you have them vet checked to see what else needs to be done or until the eye goes back to normal.
    Many many times the terramycin has saved me a vet trip! It even keeps mild entropian livable for a long time.

    How she doing? Silva had issues with ingrown eyelashes and we used lubircating eye gel! Hope she is doing better.

    It does look really bothersome. Poor Orion. I hope she is feeling better! Please update us as soon as possible. Hopefully it isn't anything serious and is maybe just something that got in there.
