Health Alert & Tip.
Please keep your pet’s eyes cleaned during this fire season.
The ash today is particularly heavy and corrosive in our area. If it lands on our pet’s eyes, they don’t blink enough to clear debris, so in a couple of days, all of us vets will be overrun seeing dogs and cats with painful eye conditions.
Start using Systane or Genteal Eye drops from any Chemist Now.
Don’t use drops with antibiotics etc in it. You just need plain artificial tears.
If you can’t get to a Chemist, then let some plain boiled water from the kettle cool down to tepid warm (not cold) and use that to flush your pet’s eyes in the interim.
