With the recent snowfall he has also been burrowing in the snow and sticking his head in the drifts. I was wondering if these are likely the cause of irritation and if eye drops might be an appropriate first step before seeing the vet. He seems as energetic as ever and no obstruction to his vision is evident.
Thanks in advance

Yellowish discharge equals infection. He needs a script not over the counter stuff. Eyes are tricky and if he has a scratch at all then certain products can damage the eye. Sorry but off to the vets is the only answer.
