Dog has red eyes??

6 posts in this topic

I have a 3 year old chocolate lab whose eyes are almost all red. I first noticed it Saturday evening. We hunted Saturday morning, I don't know if he has a cold or what. He also has had a lot of fluid coming out of his eye. Anyone know what this may be? Thanks.

It's conjunctivits. Commonly known in human kids as pink eye. Try to gently clean seeds & gunk out under the eye lids and rinse with saline. Keep an eye on it and if it doesn't get better in a few days then a vet appt to get meds is in order.

Thanks for the input gspman. Brought him in and he had two seeds in the left eye and one in the right eye. Two minor ulcers that should heal in time for pheasant opener.

Mine gets it every time we have hunted. Pheasants at Game Farm and this week duck hunting. His eyelids droop and the lower part of the eye is pink.

Anything I can do?

Thanks,

Sounds like he might be getting dust and debris his eyes. I've just started hunting my lab pup, but my vet, (who has bred labs for 20 years, hunts, and does the field trial/hunt test thing) suggested that when I get him out, and the end of each day, flush his eyes out with contact saline solution. I bought some and tried it out at home to see how much he'd protest but he didn't even bat an eyelash...literally.

I've used saline solution in the past to flush my dog's eyes. In a pinch you can blow in their eyes to get them to generate tears also. Not sure that they enjoy it at all, but if there is debris & you don't have anything else I know it works.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
