What Could Be Causing My Dog To Have Red, Bloodshot Eyes?
Q: My Boston Terrier, Sushi, has red bloodshot eyes. Why are my dog's eyes red?
A: If your dog's eyes are red, there are a few main culprits.
Sometimes pet allergies can make your dog's eyes red.
If your dog's eyes have a painless, clear discharge in addition to the redness, it could be a sign of conjunctivitis.
Conjunctivitis is also known as pink eye or red eye and is one of the most common eye problems in dogs. It can be easily diagnosed and treated by your vet. If your dog seems to be in pain, it could be a signal of a more serious eye problem such as an infection.
If you're concerned because you're dog's eyes are red, you're veterinarian might be able to clarify the reasons why, and a visit might be in order in the near future.
