Dog Eye Care

Dog owners must maintain their dog's eyes clean in order to prevent eye infections. There are various eye infections which dogs can develop the most common is known as conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye is caused by swelling of the membrane lining of the eyelids. It is important to take your dog to your veterinarian in order to be examined for infections in the eyes.

Eye Care for Dogs

Eye care for dogs is extremely important and should be followed in order to prevent any infections in the eyes of your dog. Here are a few steps that should be taken in order to keep your dogs eyes clean and out of harm's way.

  1. Often a dog's hair grows long enough that it gets into the eyes of your dog. This is not only a nuisance to your dog but also damaging to its cornea. Hair can scratch the cornea therefore a pet owner should cut the hair which gets into the eyes with a blunt-nosed pair of scissors.
  2. Dogs accumulate mucus in the corners of their eyes and although this is normal it should be cleaned because bacteria feeds on the mucus then migrates towards a dog's eyes.
  3. As all dog owners should know some dogs do not have a proper mechanism for draining tears from the lacrimal gland this causes tearstains. The tearstain area is susceptible to bacterial infection therefore trim the hair in that area. Also ensure it stays clean in order to prevent infection.

Symptoms of Eye Care Problems

Even if a pet owner attempts to keep their dogs eyes clean it still is possible for them to have eye infections. It is necessary for pet owners to be aware of the signs and symptoms that dogs experience when something is wrong with their eyes.
