|I actually came here for input on a solution to an eye problem I came up with myself, so I guess I may as well share it here.
Came home from dinner Saturday night, and Teeko's eyelid was all red and inflamed looking. Since it would be today (Monday) before I could get him in to a vet, I figured I'd look for home remedies for dog eye infections. I saw a recommendation for a homemade saline solution, but since I wear contact lenses, I figured anything safe and comfortable to put in my eyes would be okay for a dog. So I saturated a cotton ball with a multi-purpose contact lens solution (cleans, disinfects, and can be used to rinse lenses before insertion) and swabbed his eye.
Sunday morning, and his eye was MUCH better. So I reapplied a couple of times yesterday as well.
I wouldn't have done it if he whined in the slightest when applying. But it seems better now.
