    The green eye boogers are back

    Well, after 5 days of treatment, like the vet suggested, they went away and I thought everything was back to normal. Well I woke up this morning and Meesha was her same old self, running at me to say hi, and then I saw a big nasty green one in her eye

    Looks like I need to go back to the vet tomorrow. I'm bummed it's sunday. I'm the kind that would take her in right away, but now I gotta wait.

    Good vibes it's nothing serious? The vet said it was a mini infection, but now I'm wondering why the drops didn't work

    i know with my kitten, she got the eye boogers and the vet told me to use the drops for 2 weeks even if her eyes get better. The infection can spring back.

    See my vet didn't tell me that. She told me to put 5 drops in her eye a day, for a week. Her eye got better the next day, but I still did it for a week. Now a week after that week was up, they are back! Grrr. I hope they give me something different when we go tomorrow.

    Yeah I forgot to say that with the drops you have to do it like 5 times a day because their tears wash away the medicine so quickly. did you wash her bedding? They can get reinfected so easily by things in their environment that they may have rubbed their faces on.
    But yeah 1 drop 5 times a day for 2 weeks and wash the bedding or anything else they may have had contact with their face

    Good idea I didn't think about cleaning her bed. She doesn't sleep on it so much, but it's worth a shot.

    I used to work at a dog daycare/boarding place, and it was fairly common for the green eye booger thing to show up. It's an infection of some sort. I think 'infection' sounds scary, but it's not that big of a deal. You may not even need an RX to clear it up.

    My dog started with the green eye boogies a few weeks ago. I bought a bottle of Animals Apawthecary Eye & Nose Drops. It cleared up his boogers in 1 day. No visit to the vet necessary [http://www.animalessentials.com]

    The thing is though I used RX eye drops for a week, it totally cleared up, then a week later came back. So if an RX med couldn't clear it up, maybe I need a different one?

    Hmm I don't know... I don't always feel that RX is the way to go, but thats just me Especially if it's going to save me money and a trip to the vet, I try to go the natural route first.

    It might be triggered by an allergen.. perhaps something new is in bloom that is irritating to your dog. Is this your first spring together?
