• My dog has some pus like discharge coming out of her eye the last few days. I tried to clean it with warm water but it’s getting worse. Her eyes are red and the pus is coating her her whole eye

    Hi Betsy,
    I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. The symptoms that you are describing can be caused by a few different things including infection, an eye injury, allergies, or something more severe like glaucoma. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms after they have examined her. They will likely recommend some specialized eye tests to help diagnose or rule out certain causes. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of her symptoms.
