I'd call your vet for advice before using anything in the eye. :thmbsup: They should be able to just tell you yes or no. Also they all get that gunk in their eyes. It usually just goes out to the corner then you can wipe away with a gentle movement away from the eye (and never touching the eye) using a cotton pad dampened with water or a little contact lens saline solution. If she has a lot of gunk, all the time, then she should see the vet as there could be other problems.

I agree with Karlin but Optrex is perfectly safe to use for just removing the general sleepies taht they get first thing in the morning. It also helps to remove tear staining too.

My previous Vet told me to buy this instead of the tear stain remover and I also had to bathe Maxx's eye with it 3 x daily before giving him his drops. This was when he almost lost an eye to a vicious cat in our garden :(
