Q. British bulldog rubbing at eye and sneezing/sniffing. Maybe sand in his eye from the beach! Really uncomfortable boy.

Answered By

A. You can try to clean and wash his eyes with a humid swab and water (no disinfectants in it).

Do not let him scratching the eyes, it could possibly injury himself. A buster collar would be ideal to avoid it.

If no getting any better or keeps blinking I would recommend to take him to your veterinarian.

Possibly a corneal ulcer would give the same signs and would require immediate treatment!
