    Hi
    New one for today is - Amber has had weepy eyes for the last few days and they seem to be getting worse. They are not really bothering her but it looks quite unsightly. Is this a preganancy thing or not and any suggestion.

    Could be hayfever, not heard of it associated with pregnancy but obviously hormones are raging.

    Is it both eyes or just one? Also what breed is she?

    Bathe them with warm water and cotton wool, I'd stay away from salt water incase it causes a reaction.

    Bathe them and keep check on them tonight and see how quick they weep again, it could be she has some dirt or some foreign body in them and it's irritated them.

    If they get worse give your vet a ring, could be hayfever or conjunctivitis

    Its definitely not a pregnancy thing... well I've never heard of it anyway. Boil a bowl of water and put in 3 or 4 teabags. Wait for it to cool to skin temperature and bathe her eyes with teabags. I have always done it and its never failed

    I've never heard of tea bags & eczema before, care to elaborate for me as I get a touch of excema myself now and again ( think I might be allergic to dogs, but hey ho, can't be perfect :D)

    I Love My Doggies, but hate eczema :lol:

    Never tried it for eczema, but it does work for the dogs eyes, Arnie developed hayfever last year, although he seems not to have suffered as badly so far this year (fingers crossed), apart from the teabag thing, I also have a damp cloth that I use to wipe around his face after every walk to minimise the effects of pollen.
