    Default Eye irritation

    Eye irritation from running thru weeds hunting pheasants. My Lab has worn the down hair around his eyes almost down to nothing. Is there anything you can think of to keep it clean and help heal without irritating his eyes?

    Some people use petroleum jelly on the skin, flush the eyes with ophthalmic saline solution

    Make sure you flush the eyes thoroughly. Have the upper and lower eye lid open with your fingers and check the lower corners. Don't worry about the second lid. The other main concern is the nose area. It can become raw at the corners. Time to heal is the best solution. Anything you put on will just get lick off.
