Follicular conjunctivitis is a type of eye inflammation that usually occurs in the fall and spring. Some puppies experience eye discharge throughout the year. Most young dogs will outgrow this condition. You will notice red eyes and an increased eye discharge. This condition is not contagious to other pets or people and in most cases the signs of it will decrease as the puppy ages.  Your vet will prescribe a topical steroid/ antibiotic drop or ointment. This will control the condition for most dogs.

Make sure that you keep your dog’s eyes clean with moist cotton and apply the medication as directed by your veterinarian.  Sometimes the condition will re occur but have your vet check your dogs condition while you are still administering the medication to make sure the there is significant improvement.

My cat Molly had this condition when she was very young.

Remember, pets are family!
