We have been offered a spanial. However they said that he has dry eyes. What is this and does it require medial attention? Does it get worse, is it painful for the dog, is it a costly thing that requires frequent vet visits? Our other springer didn't have any problems and I'd like to know a little bit about it before I commit to this new guy. Any info would be appreciated greatly.

Nothing overwheling ~ it looks like eye drops and ointments will be your most significant issue. Post pix of your baby when you bring him home !

Maybe some ointment could get rid of it , if not , he would need drops everyday for the rest of his life. It's about $40 a month but sometimes if you shop around , you can get it for less. But it has to be diagnose by a vet first.
