Someone else also told me that treating the eye with celine (is that how you spell it?) anyways it is basically a mild mix of salt and water boiled together and then cooled down. They said that it cannot harm the dog but if it is only an irritation to something it will help clean it up. It is like eye drops for humans. It is possible that something happened while swimming in the river this week so I am going to try that first to see if it helps.
I called my vet today and they said they would not spak about anything over the phone with me and that I would have to come in for tests($$$). I think I will call the vet you mentioned as I am not getting much help right now from mine.
Thanks for everyone's help.
