Bumi has Pink Eye

He is on antibiotic ointment 3x a day. At first I thought it may be cherry eye since the pink part under the eye was swollen and sticking out, but it was too far away from the inner corner of the eye. Dr. confirmed yesterday that it was just pink eye. What a scare.

Is this the same pink eye humans get?

Yes, I didn't know dogs could get pink-eye, too!

Yikes! Who knew? I certainly didn't know dogs could get pink eye. I wonder if they use the same stuff we do to treat it,

So it can be passed from human to dog and vice versus.

They are more resistant to infections that we are, but they can still get them. I didn't ask the Doctor if it is the same that humans get, but I assume it can be contagious.

Ointment has Bacitracin and Polymyxin B.

He is doing much better now, his eye looks normal already.

Thanks everyone!
