Dry eye is a condition that stops your dog producing tears and causes dry, painful eyes.
There are a few different causes of dry eye. The most common is a fault in the immune system that causes the body to attack and destroy the tear glands. The outlook for a dog with dry eye tends to be good if the condition is noticed early and treatment is continued for life.
Dry eye is more common in certain pedigree dogs.
Book an appointment with your vet if you notice any problems with your dog’s eye(s) – they are too important to leave to chance.
