Dry Eye in dogs: what it is, and natural remedies

Every pet deserves a loving and respectful home: please only consider acquiring a pet if you will be able to take care of its long-term needs. Also, consider choosing your animal companion from a shelter, where there are so many wonderful furry friends who need a forever home.

In this video, veterinarian Dr. Andrew Jones discusses a common condition in dogs called KCS, or keratoconjunctivitis sicca, also known as Dry Eye – essentially a thick mucoid covering over the eye.

If you see this, it’s time to schedule a trip to the vet. In the interim, to control your pooch’s discomfort – and if your veterinarian approves (check with them first!) – Dr. Jones also suggests three natural anti-inflammatories to try.
