Similasan For Conjunctivitis and Irritation In Dogs
You can use Similasan for dogs, there are two formulas that work well, one is for Kids, Irritated Eyes, and the other is their old “Allergy Eye” formulation. I use and recommend both of these when I have eye irritation and want to avoid the use of a steroid drop or ointment. It is IMPERATIVE that you see a Vet when your dog has a painful squinty eye or if any redness in the eye goes on very long at all. An ulcer can form in the eye and pop it, blinding the dog in the affected eye.
