View Full Version : Rosie's Red Eyes

28th November 2010, 09:48 PM
For the last few days, Rosie's eyes have been red along with clear discharge - it usually seems to be worse in the evenings. At first I thought it was the faux fur throw I had got last weekend to go on the sofa where Rosie sits. I removed the throw and her eyes seemed to get a bit better, but the next night they were red again, but not as red as the night before.

Yesterday, they were a bit red on and off during the day as well as today. But this evening, they were really red, like they were on Thursday before I removed the throw.

Obviously, I'll be taking her to the vets tomorrow but does anyone have any ideas? Also, would it be better to wipe her eyes with a warm wet flannel or a cold wet flannel - I don't want to irritate them any further by using the wrong temperature!

Here are some photos:

Ouchy....she's definitely got something going on there. Hope it's just conjuctivitis and easily resolved.

My vet always says that eyes are too important to "mess about" with, and poor Rosie has defintely got a problem, so do please take her to your vet as soon as you can.

Good luck, and do let us know how you get on.

Took Rosie to the vets this evening - as usual she 'sang' in the waiting room, making the receptionists laugh!!!

The vet put some orange stuff in her eyes (which turned them green) just to check that she didn't have any ulcers, which she didn't fortunately.

I was then given some drops to put in her eyes twice a day and I have to take her back on Thursday for a check up.

Hopefully the drops will do the trick.
