Cleaning your dogs eyes

Saturday, March 10, 2012

You may realize that your dog’s eyes need a good cleaning, especially if you have a dog with long fur. First, check to make sure that there is only dirt around the eyes. If you notice redness, pus or swelling, call your veterinarian.  If all you see is a little bit of grime, carefully trim the hair around your dog’s eyes cutting parallel to the eyelid. This will keep hair from scratching your pets eyes, then use a soft, wet washcloth or special eye wipes to gently clean the eye area.  If the fur around your dog’s eyes is stained, don’t worry,  this is a natural situation. If you’re bothered by the sight of it, you can look for special cleaners that are designed to remove eye stain.

Remember, your pets count!
