Eyes are not things I mess around with. Some simple eye infections respond well to bathing with a mild saline solution. Others get worse. Often by the time an owner takes their dog to a Vet the condition has become very serious. Lots of dogs have lost an eye simply because they were not taken to a Vet in time.
If in doubt always consult a Vet, especially when it comes to eyes. This is a lesson I learnt by bitter experience.
Yeh, that's why I went, I'd never forgive myself if anything really bad went wrong but nevertheless I can't help but feel ripped off
