optrxx infected Eye drops, it is almost exactly the same as what the vet would give you but cheeper. ive used it on myself, Gypsy nand Inca. just dont tell the chemist its for your dog or the wont sell it to you because their insurance doesnt cover it. just say its for your hubby or someone in the family.

Conjunctivitus is really infectious. When babies/toddlers have it they can't go to nursery till it clears so keep Boycie away from other dogs till cleared up. Not sure whether dog conjunctivitus can be transferred to humans but wash hands thoroughly as well just in case. I guess whether its bacterial or viral it could pass between species - maybe someone else on forum will know.

its not that big a deal.the thing about toddlers is that they touch everything, they stick their finger up their nose then poke some other kid in the eye. any infection passes quick with kids because they have no sense of hygiene, they will put something in their mouth them put it down and some other kid will do the same. so if the first kid has the start of a tummy bug the second kid well get it too.

you will notis a difference within a couple of hours, but keep doing the drops 2 or three times a day for like 2 or 3 days. it is a good idea for you to wash you hands after touching her eye, but thats the same as if you were dealing with and family member. the first time my lot got it was just after i had had it so i think i gave it to them.

the drops sort it quick so don't worry.

hi
i havent been told that but then boycie is only 5 months
there is a product you can buy from pet shop to clean the eye and keep it moist
you could try that
but if it persists
i had a friend with a westie with dry eye and the vet took a saliva gland from mouth and transplanted to the eye to sort the problem!!
amazing eh

Wilf looks like velvet if his body is cut short . Is it Sams Rupert ...I nearly had one of her pups beforewe got Wilf . I was on a waiting list but was conscious of how long the journey would be , then saw Wilf half an hour away so got him. Sam was really helpful when I was looking for Wilf and I still contacted her when I was looking for Mabel when I was nt quite sure of certain things , it was good to get a second opinion . Its a small world . He throws lovely pups x

Sorry just seen the last part of your post about mummys dog ... without a doubt, Im here the most so I think thats why . Got Wilf sat on my knee as I post this Mabel was sat next to me but she keeps getting down cos she s too hot then back up then down again. Im lucky if i can go to the loo without being followed even if you think they're asleep. Definitely loyal dogs I think thats why they are so adorable x

Boycie gets really excited when I come home from work
Kisses tail wagging etc x I love it x

Makes me feel loved so much by him .
But I know what you mean about showering and going to lop they follow you everywhere .I have started giving raw bones and marrow bones to keep him occupied while around house and it eases the separation issue as he whispers or howls when I leave . it only lasts 1in but I feel so guilty! so it works for us
psso glad his eye is getting better by the hourthanks to
kendal for that top tipmarzy
