Dog Eye Infections Symptoms and Treatment (Video Podcast)

  • Dog Eye Infections Symptoms and Treatment
  • Information on dog eye infection symptoms and treatment from Dr. Partrick McHale on behalf of the Dog Health guide. When a veternarian receives a call about a dog eye infection, he or she suggests that an owner comes in to the vet's office as soon as they can. A problem can range from a basic canine eye infection to more chronic problems such as a scratched corena.  If there is a scratch, it can be easily detected and it is easier to treat earlier rather than later. There are also dog eye fungal infections that can compromise the site quickly. Typically eye medications are often dog eye drops. They could be difficult to put in, but once you get the hang of it, or receive instruction from a vet, the easier it will be. Again the key to success is early detection and treatment.
