Red Eye in Dogs
Treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the ocular disorder, but generally, treatment will be on an outpatient basis. In most cases, dogs will have an Elizabethan collar placed on them to prevent self-trauma to the eye.
If deep corneal ulcers are found, or glaucoma is diagnosed, surgery may be necessary to repair the eye.
