mucus from dogs eye


night bite

Recommended Posts

My black lab is 2 and the last couple of days there has been a yellowish green mucus coming from his eyes. Just wondering if anyone know what to do for this or just go to the vet. I'm sure its an eye infection but just wondering if it will go away by it self. Thanks

Before you run out to the vet, hold the eye open (they probably won't like this) and flush it out good with some saline solution. Do this a coupld of time throughout a day and then see. Could be as simple as something in it's eye. My dogs wake up with some nasty looking green things in their corners after a day of hunting and with flushing them out immediately after hunting I still may have to flush again the next day to get everything out.

It is most likely conjunctivitis. Just get some antibiotic ointment from the drug store and put some in the lower eyelid margin twice a day, should clear up in a few days.

My 11 month old lab had the same stuff going on with his eyes near the end of the summer. The vet gave me an ointment to put in his eye for a few days. That cleared it up after only a few days of treatment.

Yes, after a three day pheasant hunt in Iowa this past fall, my puppy had all kinds of stuff coming out of his eyes. It was pretty nasty for a few days. I used some saline to wash his eyes out each morning and before bedtime for a week or so after the hunt. He was not kean on having something put in his eyes but it helped.

Try flushing it with saline, but it's probably conjunctivitus. Our dog's had it several times. A trip to the vet is in order if the flushing doesn't take care of it. They'll want to do a stain of the eye to make sure it's not a corneal scratch. If it's not, they'll give you some oitment to put in the eye--basically overpriced Neosporin smile

It is better to use clean water to flush out your dogs eyes. Saline solution that is made for people is a different ph than a dogs and will burn, kind of like when you get sweat in your eye. Water is closer to a dogs ph and will burn less.

Also my vet recommends after every hunt in cattails I flush out my dogs eyes with water to get the cattail fuzz out.

I've never heard that and my vet actually told me to use saline. My dog didn't seem to mind. Something I never thought about though!

Water will work as well. I don't believe saline will hurt however. This has been passed down from the boss (wife) who is a vet tech and the vets that she works under as well. When I have run low on saline in a bottle, I have cut it with water to fill the bottle up.

yeah my vet recommends using the water. My first vet said to use saline and I can tell the difference between the two as far as the dogs reaction to each.

      I would not call a casino an active income, everything is very situational there, it does not depend on you, but on the casino itself, so you need to be very careful about this

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      Hei, jeg vil gjerne anbefale deg det beste nettcasinoet: top casino norge. De første tegnene på de beste virtuelle klubbene vises i begynnelsen av spillet eller når du oppretter en konto. Institusjonen skal ha et tiltalende design og brukervennlig grensesnitt. det er mulig at mange nye brukere ikke forstår hvordan de skal trykke på knappene riktig og raskt forlater ressursen. De fremtredende knappene og det intuitive grensesnittet er spesielt viktig.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
