• My dogs eyes are slightly red and irritated. Is it ok to give her saline drops to see if it helps clear it up? It doesn’t seem to be bothering her.

    Hi Katie,
    Red eyes may be caused by allergies, infection, or injury. I recommend calling your veterinarian for an eye exam. They may want to perform some tests to look for injuries, tear production and eye pressures to help determine the cause and the best course of treatment.
