Your pet's eyes play a key role in communicating with you through body language. In addition to being often painful, eye irritations and other issues can impact your companion's ability to communicate with you, causing frustration for both of you. Don't hesitate to get your dog or cat evaluated if their vision seems impaired in any way. EntirelyPets' stock of eye cleansers and treatments likely has just what the veterinarian ordered - at an even more affordable price.
Eye drops aren't necessarily one-size-fits-all. Our selection ranges from simple saline drops to ointments. Saline drops are a great irrigation solution for common allergies or irritation from dust, dirt or smoke. They can flush out particles and gently moisturize. For other conditions, specialized gels, washes, creams and ointments are likely needed.
If your pet suffers an unfortunate tangle in your rose bushes and injures an eye, see your veterinarian for an evaluation. Even small scratches can lead to big infections. Medicated drops can flush the eye of any remaining debris, clean the wound and foster healing. Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), also known as dry eye syndrome, can also cause severe dryness and inflammation that must be treated with medicated lubricants.
Environmental irritants and injuries aren't the only eye issues that can be treated at home. Specialty drops can target issues like severe infections, cataracts and ocular degeneration. Ocular infections due to pathogens like streptococci, E. coli, and conjunctivitis, plus secondary infections caused by distemper or other issues, can be treated with specially formulated ointments. And while other conditions, like cataracts and glaucoma, can't be treated with cleansers alone, they can help maintain clear vision
Eye problems common in cats and dogs include irritation, infection, tear stains, discharge and dry eye. Examine your pet's eyes for any issues or if anything looks out of the ordinary. The eyeball should be clear and bright, the base third eyelid should be retracted and pupils should be equal and reactive. If something looks awry, contact your veterinarian immediately.
