A bright-eyed dog with a pretty face
Your dog's eyes form rheum, or eye discharge, because of tear evaporation. Rheum is actually the residue that is left behind once water has evaporated.
The most common causes of rheum in dogs are associated with poor tear drainage. This happens after too much sleep, as a result of an infection, allergic reaction, obstruction of the lacrimal sac, etc.
Rheum looks bad on your dog’s face and may cause slight itching or discomfort.
It is advisable to clean your dog’s eyes every morning to remove the accumulated mucus discharge. Otherwise, if your dog experiences discomfort, he may rub his eyes with his paw and cause an infection in the area.
Ocucan eye cleaner helps the animal remove rheum once it has softened, which means no pain and instant relief for your pet.
