What is the most common eye infection in dogs?
The most common eye infection in dogs is conjunctivitis, also known as "pink eye." Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the thin membrane that lines the inner surface of the eyelids and covers the front part of the eyeball. It can be caused by various factors, including bacterial or viral infections, allergies, irritants, or foreign objects in the eye. The symptoms of conjunctivitis in dogs may include redness of the eyes, discharge (which can be clear, white, yellow, or green), swelling of the eyelids, squinting, excessive blinking, and discomfort.
