Goopy Eyes

Elsie No Goopy EyesAbout 3 weeks ago Elsie started having goopy eyes. It would be fine and then I would look at her and the eye goop had dripped down an inch or so down her cheek. I cleaned it up with a warm damp cloth, and she would be fine for a few hours and then it would come back. Her eye was not red, but something was obviously going on. So off to the vet we went.

The vet said her eye was inflamed. They flushed her eyes and didn’t find anything. They did the eye dye test to see if there was an ulcer and there was none, so that was good. She gave me some anti inflammatory/antibiotic ointment to put in her eyes twice a day for 7 days. After about 3 – 4 days she was much better, but we did it for the full 7 days. She was fine after that. No more goopy eyes. This picture was taken of her after the treatment, and you can see her beautiful eyes look very healthy 🙂

Its back

Now 3 days ago she had goopy eyes again. I had some of the ointment left, so I started right away with the twice a day ointment application. Its been a full 3 days and it is getting better, but now I am out of the ointment. I called the vet for a refill, and they said they would ask the dr. if I could have more. That was yesterday and I have not heard back. I hope they give me more! I hate to stop the treatment mid-way and then have to start over.. I will be calling the vet’s office later this morning, and hopefully I can swing by and pick up a refill.

Wish us luck! I hate when my dogs have these medical things going on..
