Saline For Dogs?


Recommended Posts

Ry's third eyelid on the bottom corner side by his nose is not where it belongs. He's been winking most of the afternoon and you can tell it is bothering him.

Vet closed at noon, and it isn't an emergency, so we'll make an apt Monday if it still bother him

 

 

But...

can I use human saline solution to flush his eye?

I would think so. My vet says to follow basic first aid procedures for humans. I've used Polysporin eye drops when one of ours got a gucky eye. Worked great and saved us a trip to the vet and the expenses that entails.

Yes.

 

Get Genteal gel from the drug store, dry eye version. That is what the Eye Doc has us use on JD after his eye surgery.

All I had was saline I used for my contacts. Worked fine. His eye is good this morning

 

which is more than I can say for my own - and the saline didn't help mine :(
