It is typical for dogs to accumulate tears, dirt, and dust in the eyes. Certain dog breeds; such as the Maltese, Shih Tzu, Poodle, Pug, Beagle, and St. Bernard, are prone to obtain dirty eyes that could develop into serious health issues if they are not cared for correctly. If doggie eyes aren’t cleaned routinely, bacteria could form and cause infections with side effects as consequential as blindness (in more extreme cases). Keeping those puppy dog eyes adorable can be done with some basic necessities; including blunt scissors (for longer haired dogs), sterile dog eye wash or eye wipes, and a damp cloth. If your pup has longer hair that grows in the way of their eyes, use the blunt scissors to free-up any stragglers in the way. Unruly hairs can scratch the eyeball, leading to discomfort and a possibility for infection. Rinse doggie eyes with either a sterile eye wash, or use dog eye wipes to rid the gunk that has formed. Some dogs may fight this process, so using dog treats as a reward may help. There are even tear stain removers for dogs that come in flavors which can be sprinkled on dog food. After the cleaning process has been accounted for you may then use the damp cloth to gently press over the eye area. Doing this will assist in removing any missed gunk and finalize the cleaning process. Clean eyes make for a happy dog!
