Havanese Eyes, Cleaning & Discharge
As most of you all know, Baloo had Cherry Eye surgery 3 weeks ago. Everything seems to be going well, and he is now done his antibiotics.
I have a few questions though....
1. Do most hav's have "normal" discharge coming out of their eyes daily?
2. Do you have to clean their eyes every day?
3. What do you use to clean their eyes?
I guess before the surgery, Baloo wasn't having any tears or discharge so I don't know what is normal for him or a Havanese.
I know being human I sometimes have "morning sleep" in my eyes and I assume that may be the same for hav's. Baloo sometimes will have a clear, whitish discharge coming out of his eyes and I wonder if that is normal? Sometimes there will be a crusty brownish piece. I usually have to wipe his eyes every morning so wondered if this is the norm. I have been using a lightly damp clean face cloth.
I have a vet apointment on the 11th but didn't know if I should call before hand.
Thanks for any advice on this!
