Dog all of a sudden has discharge in her eyes

Hello

My 3 year old Pitt Bull had a discharge in her tearducts last night. Every hour it seemed to come back, but this morning she looked like she had bloodshot eyes and she seemed to "paw" at her snout and eyes as if to wipe it away. It is still coming back today. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Can you tell me what I need to do for her? It was very "crusty" this morning. Your help and suggestions are appreciated!

Thanks

A yellowish discharge accompanied with red eyes which is causing the dog irritation sounds like a touch of conjunctuvitis to me. This is simply an infection in the eye and can be quickly cleared up with antibiotic eye-drops. Take her to the vet and he'll be able to give you the appropriate treatment.

Hope this helps
