    Smile Eye, skin treatments

    Whilst on holiday last week in Scotland......

    bumped into a chap at the car boot sale. He just loved our dogs.

    He noticed a gunky eye on Guinness, and told us of a remedy.

    He said that castor oil dropped into the eye should sort it. Also mentioned that it was good for other things - he used it to get rid of a mole on his face.

    We are good listeners - but always want to look further into thinks like this.

    Sure enough - castor oils seems to be quite a miracle cure. Gets rid of warts, moles, skin cancer treatment, liver skin patches.

    Has anyone had any success with any of these treatments.

    Guinness - being an elderly gent - has got more warts than he used to - so we are going to try it on these. (Obviously because of its laxative nature if taken internally - you won't want you dog to lick it too much!!!)

    I would not even consider dropping anything into a dog's eye without checking with a vet first; eyes are so sensitive plus generally I'd never try any kind of treatment unless I know the authority and medical knowledge of the person recommending it.

    Cavaliers normally get gunk in their eyes and it isn't a sign of an infection so there'd really be no point in treating it. If you're concerned about the gunk, I'd check with your vet as to whether there's a problem. Castor oil seems to be advised for conjunctivitis which is an actual infection.
