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.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
