Cleaning Your Toy Poodle’s Eyes
Smaller dog breeds like the Toy Poodle and the Bichon Frise are prone to eye conditions such as watery eyes, blocked tear ducts, irregular eye drainage, etc. Dogs especially with light colored fur seem to have more eye problems because the tears or drainage stains their hair and fur. Here are a few tips on how to clean your dog’s eyes. One tip is to use a warm wash cloth and gently dab at your dogs eyes in the morning to remove any sleepy or gunk. You can also use a vet approved eye cleaner. Dab some onto a cotton swap and gently wipe at the eyes. Dawn dish soap can help remove built up gunk. It’s safe for pets and breaks down grease well. Use a little on a damp cloth and be sure to rinse after. This can also help clean fur stains. Stain removers approved by your Tampa, FL veterinary clinic may also be available.
