Have you noticed that your dog has been acting extremely odd lately? And you come to find out that your dog has an eye infection? There is of course the good ol’ method of taking your dog to the veterinarian to get it checked out. However, there are methods to treating your dog’s eye infection before you go to the vet. Remember though, that the methods you try within this article are not in any way shape or form condoned by petadorn.com, and does not reflect the belief of the owners of the website. The best medical treatment is from a professional at your veterinarian. These methods within this article are only common remedies that have been found to work.
To start, you have to flush your dog’s eye with saline a few times a day. This allows for all of the needless gunk to be washed out of your dogs eyes. On top of that, it will wash out the gunk around the eye as well. The next thing that you should do, is get a warm cloth and compress it over the dog’s closed eye so that it will help relieve the irritation around the eye. Do not put the cloth directly on the eye, but instead make sure that the dog’s eye is closed, and you put it over the skin around the eye, so that it is relieving the exterior fur. By doing this, you are making sure that there is no gunk that could be infecting the eye around the eye. Perhaps the problem is just a couple of dirty things around the eye on the exterior fur.
Be sure closely monitor your dog. If your dog appears to be acting better or seems to be more healthy, then clearly the problem has been fixed. If the problem persists, there are multiple ways that you can take. You can either take your dog to the vet, or continue on your path to try and solve the problem yourself.
Go to a local store, and you can get some terramycin opthalmic ointment. Many eye ointments for dogs are available over the counter, and you do not need a prescription. Apply ¼ of a ribbon and do it several times a day. Remember to closely monitor your dog after this. If the problem persists, remember to take your dog to a local veterinarian.
