Your dog’s eyes should be bright and clear always. If there is green discharge out of its eye, it is a health problem, conjunctivitis. It is the tissue lining eyelids and connecting the eyeball near the cornea. This may be a sign of dry eyes, corneal ulcers, or glaucoma. It also may be due to infections or allergies caused by bacteria or viruses. Whatever, treat this condition without any delay.
Green eye discharge is common in adult dogs and puppies. It means an infection; yet do not come to conclusion. As it may not be an infection necessarily.
Common causes to have green eye discharge
- Vaccinations, processed food, grain or milk in food, neck injury, arsenic, mercury and toxin build-up, household cleaning products, artificial food preservatives, head congestion due to collar or leash excessive pulling, and pesticides.
How to treat Green eye discharge in your dog
As a veterinary conventional practice, corticosteroids with antibiotics are prescribed. The problem goes and returns.
The primary cause is toxin buildup and also repeated vaccinations cause green eye discharge. It is evident in young puppies as they are given in sequence unnecessary vaccine boosters. A puppy reaching three to four months old receives the first steroid or antibiotic eye ointment. This gets absorbed into the body of the puppy causing systemic side effects.
Taking a holistic view point, discharge is a way of getting out the toxins and impurities and cleansing. Administering corticosteroids helps suppress the natural defenses in the body and cleanses with the immune system efforts.
In fact, eye infections are rare. If you see the dog is uncomfortable or the discharge does not go after some time, visit a vet for an examination. Ensure it is not a serious problem. However, if your vet does not find any problem with the greenish eye discharge, follow this protocol before resorting to drugs.
- Rinse two or three times your dogs eyes daily using sterile saline solution.
- Give homeopathic remedy and repeat the dose in two weeks. Reduce the number of vaccinations.
- Ensure liver cleansing and detoxing.
- Include plant based minerals pushing toxic elements from the body. Give minerals to boost the detox capacity in your dog.
- If you feel kibble, switch a cooked or raw natural diet.
- Give essential nutrients to your dog.
- Check its collar and leash. Collar pressure may create congestion in the head and eye discharge.
