How do I take care of my Poodle's eyes?

My Poddle constantly has red or brown goo on her nose. I have tried washing it off, and it works a little bit. But the next morning, there it is again. I know this is common in this breed of dog, but is there any way you can control it, or clean it off?

I had a terrier with much the same problem: goo in his eyes, black crusty stuff on nose & from tear ducts. After many mos. of trying various vet prescribed treatments, I asked my vet to take a culture from the crap around his eyes. Turned out he had a weakness for Staphlococcus, & it was an ongoing Staph. infection. The RIGHT antibiotics took care of it. He also had dry eyes. I suggest you ask your vet for a tear test & a culture, to rule out these possibilities. You might also try Neosporin ointment on her nose.
