    Dry Eye Questions

    Can anyone dealing with Dry Eye in their dog please tell me about their experience with this horrible affliction and how you and your dog are dealing/living with it? What medication(s)/treatments did your vet prescribe and any other tips/advice that you can share would be greatly appreciated. I don't have complete faith in the vet we are seeing and I don't want my Abbie to lose her vision, or worse, her eyes to this. She has ulcers on her eyes and horrible greenish yellow discharge that is controlled by Tobramycin and Flurbiprofen. I just need some insight. Thanks so much!

    The best time to diagnose Dry Eye is early in the disease before all of the tear tissue has been destroyed. However, Dry Eye has a very varied appearance and can be subtle, especially early in the disease. Veterinary specialists in ophthalmology recommend testing virtually all sore eyes, especially if a dog has had more than one bout of conjunctivitis or eye infection within any 12-month period. Breeds susceptible to Dry Eye are normally tested on a regular basis

    My Sophie was treated for dry eye before her death last month, but turns out to be allery, not dry eye
