Hi Dr. Van Lienden,

I am curious if your dog does have red eyes and haivng more excessive eye goop than usual (that isnt green or yellow) what might that indicate? My beagle is experiencing this. We have moved recently to a more dusty and smoky environment too though so this could be it. I did not notice the whites of her eyes being brownish reddish before since her pupils are so large anyway but they could have been. What kind of serious conditions might this be a sign of? thanks for your help.
