Puppy with Dry Eye
I'm a new momy and I've had my puppy for 2 weeks he has dry eye. He has been unable to produce tears in his right eye. The first week he was on Tobromycin. This week we took him to an opthalmologist and she put him on Cytosporin, a triple antibiotic, and Lubrithol. This Shirmer (sp?) Test came back at a 0. I've been doing research and I am worried that he will not respond to the treatment. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

he will most likely need surgery to make his life good..otherwise it feels like sand in your eye all the time..and it will get infected. The breeder should pay for the surgery...or at least half..but I say 100% since this problme is from birth..
