Pet’s eyes are very delicate and there are ways to keep your dog’s eyes clean that you can do so they aren’t prone to infections and traumas.
For each and every breed the situation is different, based on hair type, length and face shape, however commonly many toy breeds including poodles, cocker spaniels and shih tzus can have eye issues.
What to do if your pet is experiencing problems with their eyes?
1. Consult with your Vet
If there is redness, cloudiness or inflammation around the pet’s eye it might be an infection. For that or any doubt always visit your trusted veterinarian to get a diagnosis.
2. Trim hair around the eyes
Ask your groomer to keep the hair around the eyes as short as possible. This will help keep the area clean and clear and prevent bacteria from getting into the eye.
3. Clean Tears Stain
If the issue isn’t caused by a serious medical condition, you can clean your dog’s eyes with a soft cloth or sponge using water that is at room temperature. Don’t use your fingers.
4. Ask your groomer for a very berry face add-on
