    When it comes to eyes, I really don't mess around. It could be due to spring pollens or could be an eye infection. I would take him to the vet.

    One of mine had a red eye a few weeks back. We took her to the vet, they cleaned it out really good and gave us an ointment for it. She didn't have an infection, vet figured it was from playing bitey face with her brother. After the ointment, it was better in about 2 days. I'd definitely get it checked and don't put anything in it until you've seen the vet. Certain things will make it worse if it's at all scratched.

    It depends. My chocolate, Rider's eyes get red when he is super tired and refuses to go to sleep. It could be an indicator of another problem too. YOu have to assess what things led up to this or if it's an ongoing problem.

    The same thing happened to my 9 month old lab, Shadow, one day last week, her left eye was a bit swollen and red, and it looked weird, by the end of the day BOTH eyes were really red and swollen and she was blinking a lot - I took her to the vet, not knowing what it was, and he gave me some ointment to put in her eyes - she's much better now, But I would DEFINITLEY take your dog to the vet to have it checked - better safe than sorry !!

    I have been advised by my vet last week that the best antibiotic you can use for eye infections is cold black tea, it works better than any antibotics they can give me, it seem to have worked wonders, Saskas eyes were a bit bloodshot and kept weeping, a couple of days using the cold black tea and it seems to have cleared up.
    Hope this helps.

    Regards
