My 9 year old cocker spaniel's eyes stay matted all the time. The Vet told me to keep them clean and that she was blind in one eye. No matter how often i clean them within a couple of hours they are stuck shut again. She has also started to cough with a gagging sound. Any suggestions on what to do? I am afraid if I take her back to the vet they are going to want to put her to sleep. Do you think she is in any pain?
If she is eating, she is not in pain. You will know when it is time. If your vet said there is nothing that can be done for the eyes, then there probably is not much that can be done. Nursing care at home goes a long way. If the cough gets worse you have to go back to the vet. vetcare
