    Default Irritated Eye

    Ok guys,,,,luckily I've never had any major eye issues with Tyson. One of his eyes is irritated now, just the outside. Inside looks perfect, I know it's because he has an obsession with rubbing his face on the corners of all our furniture! I try to stop him when I see him.... but yeah. Not here all day long.

    Question, what's something safe I can use around the eye?? I've been cleaning with plain eye wash but scared to use ointments I have bc it's so close to the eye! @2BullyMama @Manydogs @oscarmayer - halppppp.

    Lockjaw does that! But he scratches his eye raw. Vet gave me Apoquel and said it's environmental allergies. That works great- but I don't want that to be long term. I'm going to start him on Zyrtec and see how that does. And it's only his right eye that he scratches.

    Yes for Tyson it's only one eye as well and he's always done it but this time it got bad! I really wonder if it is allergies or the fact that he goes to town on the corner of our furniture!!!

    PS good to see you I hadn't seen you post in a while and was actually meaning to reach out to you so happy you responded how are the babies??

    Banks had this same thing.. just one eye too. I'll have to see what ointment we used, but as Helene suggested-- coconut oil should help

    Lockjaw would do the same thing- but on the bottom of his kennel, the bottom of the baby gate- anything that has a ledge, he was trying to run his head along it. He was getting quite creative with it.

    LIFE! Life has been crazy lately! Work has been crazy busy since January and won't slow down until the end of March.
    Then my daughter started softball again.

    We were eating dinner and your post popped up as a notification. Lol

    Simultaneously thought- she never had issues with Tyson AND Lockjaw has the same issue! Lol- I had to chime in.

    They are doing really well! Penny is completely healed from her TPLO and is an absolutely different, happier dog. Lockjaw is his same ole hard headed rambunctious self.

    Just another day of Penny trying to take all the toys from Lockjaw by way of humping him.

    No as it's natural oil. A friend of mine I've worked for years back home is from Barbados. She mentioned once that people in the caribbean use it all the time to soothe irritated, dry eyes. There's also eyedrops has glycerin and you put that into your eyes. Glycerin is basically a byproduct of processing animal fat for soap.
