Conjunctivitis means inflammation (swelling) of the ‘conjunctiva’ and can be caused by many different conditions. The conjunctiva is a very thin layer of tissue that covers the inside of the eyelid and runs across the front of the eye. Conjunctivitis causes red, itchy, weepy eyes.
Always contact your vet if you notice anything wrong with your dog’s eyes – they are too important to ignore. If your dog suffers with conjunctivitis regularly, your vet will investigate why.
