How is conjunctivitis in dogs treated?
If there is a suspected allergy causing the infection, the issue should clear up when the cause is removed from your dog’s environment. If the infection is due to a virus or bacteria, there are some commonly prescribed medications to manage the inflammation – including oral and external antibiotics.
It’s a good idea to discuss costs with your vet before you start treatment.
How do I avoid the conjunctivitis reoccurring in my dog?
Limiting your dog’s exposure to possibly-affected animals can prevent recurrence of conjunctivitis
If you’re thinking of adopting a dog with conjunctivitis
Make sure you review the clinical history of your new dog and ask for more details on how the conjunctivitis has been treated. You’ll need to sign a disclaimer to confirm you’ve been made aware of the condition. Any dog who’s had treatment is likely to have pet insurance exclusions, so it’s worth discussing potential on-going costs with your vet.
