A8N7GMDo you suspect that your dog may be suffering from an eye problem? Here are some symptoms to look for.

  • Is he tending to avoid light?
  • Are his eyes bulging?
  • Are his eyes closed or filled with pus?
  • Are they cloudy?
  • Are they red?
  • Is your dog trying to rub them?
  • Is his putting his face to the ground and trying to rub?

If you notice any of these symptoms, take your dog to the vet for an examination. It could be anything from an allergy to an infection. If it is an infection, pet medication will be prescribed which will help cure the problem.

According to the Organic Pet Digest, if your dog is prone to eye problems, consider adding one of the following to her diet:

  • Adding leafy green vegetables, parsley, any blue or purple berries, carrots, sesame seeds or sunflower seeds to the diet
  • Adding the following to his diet,  Zinc, Bioflavonoids, Pycnogenols, Vitamin A, Vitamin C or Vitamin D
