Pre-bath eye ointment?

1438 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  gene
Its bath day for Boo, and I realized I should get some protective ointment to put in his eyes beforehand. What does everyone use? Mineral oil? Ointment from the vets? Are there certain brands or ingredients that I should avoid?
I'd like something that I can pick up today- either at Petco, a pharmacy, or my vets- because this Sat is his first doodle romp! :shock: :lol:

Re: while on the bathing topic....

Boo had a vet checkup today so I asked our vet about eye ointment. She said not to use anything, so I guess I'll keep doing the hands-over-eyes method too. Maybe I'll buy a bottle of saline solution too. Store it in the medicine cabinet, just in case...

Our puppy gets kind of stinky after one week but we don't want to bathe her that often in fear that her skin will dry out.....
We bathe Boo once a month but do lots of spot rinses in-between with just water, or sometimes water and conditioner if the hair is long. (The shampoo we have can be used once a week, if diluted with a lot of water, but we only use it if he's really dirty or muddy.) Normally we stick him in the shower, hose off the dirty parts, then towel dry. I worry about dry skin too, but this works just fine. Maybe this would work for your puppy. :D
