Dog With Discharge From Eye

I adopted a 5 year old male Chihuahua from a shelter, I've had him for 10 days he has had 3 vet visits. He started getting small red boils around his stomach and the top of body, he was treated with a antibiotic and a steroid shot. The sores are healing but now his right eye is weepy and sagging with yellow discharge. He rubs it, yelps and keeps licking his feet and paws. None of these vets seem to know anything because he has no history. Any advice will be helpful.

When my dog had yellow discharge from her eyes recently we took her to the vet. She was very sick (with Lyme's disease) and I think the eye discharge is a symptom of a hard pressed immune system.

3 strikes with the same vet & they're history. You need to find a good vet.

I would ask people who have success with their vets.

Sounds like allergies or a relergic reaction to maybe one of the meds. The vet can give you eye drops for a dog. I had a St. Bernard with all those symptoms..he had allergies really bad. We were constantly giving him eye drops and allergy medicine. Hope it turns out well for you and your dog dont give up on him..ok?

Sounds like your dog is having allergic reaction to something he has come in contact with, the dog needs a complete check up by a vet blood count and x-rays too. Good luck, I love chihuahuas!
