I was wondering if anyone has any tips about how to prevent Pennys eye from becoming sore. Last year her eye was quite sore looking and weeping a bit she got some drops and didn't have any further problems for about 8 months. In december there her eye (the same one) started to look sore, under the lid was very red, it was running but it was more like water than anything sticky, I am sure it looked a tiny bit swollen and she was constantly rubbing it. We took her to the vet and to be honest I can't remember exactly what he said but it was caused by her having rather prominent eyes and the fact she enjoys mooching around so much in long grass etc.. and that I think Follicular conjuntivitis had formed.. some form of it anyway! She got prescribed maxidex (I think) and it healed up nicely. The vet suggested this may be an ongoing problem and just to keep it and use again, this was at the beginning of December. About a week ago it started looking sore again, I don't know if it is a coincidence but it seemed to be after she had been playing on the beach. I have been using the drops again and it is starting to look better. What I am really wondering is there anything I can do to prevent it reaching the stage of it looking sore and red? I read online someone bathes their dogs eye with a salt water solution after they have been in long grass or at the beach. It is a shame if this is going to keep returning as it is obviously annoying her as she rubs it on the couch, our legs etc... Thanks!
