When clients notice their pet has a sore eye they often call to ask what they can do at home and if they need to visit the hospital. Below are some basic rules to get you out of trouble and keep your pet's eyes safe.
You need to see a vet if your pet;
- has one or both eyes closed or is squinting.
- has swollen eye lids.
- has redness noticed on the white of the eye.
- has a sudden increase in discharge.
- in continually rubbing its eye.
Only ever wipe your pet's eyes with a damp cotton wool ball.
NEVER put your own eye drops in your pet's eyes as this may damage the eye.
