Over the NYE holiday, I developed pink eye. I couldn't see, out of my left eye, couldn't wear contacts and it hurt. Did you know your DOG can get pink eye, too? They can! It's such as contagious, as if you were to get it (that's why I couldn't work for a few days after the New Year).
There are seven causes of pink eye in dogs..
Secondary to disease of tissue surrounding the eye
Secondary to trauma or environmental causes
Secondary to other eye diseases
Whatever the cause may be, you need to get your dog to your veterinarian ASAP, so treatment can begin just as quickly!
If you have small children, do NOT allow them near your dog if the dog has pink eye and vice versa. It is contagious!!!
