    DefaultGreen mucous from right eye

    Toshiro has green mucous coming from his right eye. I cleaned it with some peroxide, checked both eyes for redness and they seem fine. He doesn't twitch, or scratch, but I think (I'm not sure, he has bad breath all the time too :P) his eye smells funny. Should I go to the vet?

    Sounds like a trip to the vet is in order. When Sami had a green discharge from the eye it was conjunctivitis. She had to get an antibiotic ointment from the vet. Had to use the ointment for 7 or 14 days ~ can't remember which. But it cleared it up really quickly.

    Yes, I think you should do to the vet.

    Sometimes dogs get clear mucous/discharge from the eyes but this is normal. Green discharge is not.

    For the record, bad breath is not good either.

    Update, I got him to the vet (lucky he is right across the street!) and he gave me Oculosan drops, he said he is fine, and bring him back tomorow.

    I'm glad he's doing better but NEVER use peroxide near the eyes.

    Peroxide is a no no especially around the eyes. If you use it to clean a cut just use it once since it impeeds healing.

    Nobody said you put it in the eye. We said not to use it around the eye. No need for an eye roll.

    Use plain water to clean up the gunk instead. Peroxide has no business around the eye.
