Dog eye hygiene

Why is it important to clean your dog’s eyes?

Secretions can build up in the corner of the eye, day or night. It is essential to clean your pet’s eyes to ensure good ocular hygiene. Furthermore, some breeds (Boxer, French Bull Dog, Pug, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Bichon, etc.) are more prone to excessive lacrimation, which leaves brown streaks and occasionally skin problems around the eyes.

How often should you clean your dog’s eyes?

Breeds prone to excessive lacrimation and brown streaking should have the eye contour area and streaks cleaned regularly, around two times a week. Other animals should have their eyes cleaned when discharged is observed. If discharge persists, or your pet appears to have some discomfort or red eyes, it is important to seek veterinary advice.

How to clean your pet’s eyes?

We recommend using FRANCODEX EYE CLEANSING LOTION. Apply the lotion to the eye contour area and eyelid by gently squeezing the bottle. Wipe away any excess liquid using a compress, and avoid rubbing. For sensitive animals, you can also apply the lotion directly onto the compress, then gently wipe away impurities without rubbing the skin. Clean the eye contour area from the inside to the outside, to avoid transferring impurities to the tear duct.
