Hi all. Our vet (and I can vouch that he is the best as Chloe loves him!) advised us to use simply tea (any non-flavored tea from tea bags) to cleanse Chloe's eyes every two or three days or so in addition to cleaning her eyes with soft wet napkin. He stressed that this is not old wives' tale, but scientifically simply because tea has properties akin to a good saline solution. In his usual way he told us not to waste money on fancy solutions as using tea is just as good and safe. He (Kevin the vet) is good that way - several times already when treating our cat and dog he offered solutions that make sense and economical instead of getting us to pay more his way. Isn't that great. I suppose because he and his wife (also a vet) they love animals as a couple, and have dogs and cats themselves.
