Question Eye gunk

Beamer seems to be having more eye gunk lately leaking out of his eyes. Its clear gunk for the most part..(no tear stain like)

I notice he gets this alot after walks or running and playing outside. Could the wind in his face be making his eyes water and gunky? Anyone else have this problem??

Thanks!
Ryan

Ryan, Kubrick gets that too. One eye actually tears more than the other, which is funny to me. I really do think it's because of wind and the hair gets in the eye causing it to tear more than usual.

worse since hair cuts

When I had their hair tied in an up-knot, there were no short hairs sticking in their eyes. Now that it is cut, some hair is always sticking in there...add wind, dirt, and other debris to that...and you have eye goop.

Ryan while it's most likely the wind, if you continue to have problems, you can add a probiotic called I-Stain.

Ryan..it's spring and alot of dogs react to pollen in the air..Sophie's eyes are really tearing alot more..a bit gummy. I wipe them with a warm wash cloth..seems to help the goo..

My daughter has always called them "eye boogers", and Molly gets them all the time!

I check for them all the time so they don't dry, but darn, if I miss one, my daughter is sure to find it!

Ryan, tis the season for all kinds of allergens to be in the air. You can go to Petsmart and get an eye cleaner for after walks.

Yeah, probably is just a spring time thing I guess, as he had very little gunk during the winter. Ughhh.. it kinda smells though.. thats normal, right?

Sophies eyes smell, but Gabriel has no issues with runny eyes.

What kind of cleaner?

Izzy's eye's smell, too, Diane. Doc's do not, but for such a little girl, she sure does have some stinky eyes! What is in the cleaner?
