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.
