My vet is keen on a new product: Hy-Optic eye drops. She says they not only lubricate the Cav's eyes, which do not blink completey closed, they help prevent early cataracts.

Any comments?

BTW, this vet turns out to have a special affection for and experience with Cavs.

My shih tzu was just had a tear test and they were low on production..Maybe this would help him. My vet said that there was really only one product on the market that would help with this condition, but it was like $35 for a 3 ounce tube!! :*gh: Purhaps this product is newer...
