The discharge could be a result of allergies or blocked tear ducts. A visit to your vet is always best just in casse it could be something more serious.

Take your dog to a vet as soon as possible. There are many causes of eye discharge and home remedies just won't cut it. You need to get a diagnosis from a qualified vet in order to start a proper course of treatment or you risk something serious happening to your pet.

Check both of his eyes to make sure there is no debris or foreign objects in them. Look to make sure they are not scratched. Moisten a cloth with warm water to wipe away excess discharge.

Your dog may have a number of conditions or problems that could cause his eye discharge. It could be anything from conjunctivitis (pink eye - yes, dogs can get it), it could be a corneal abrasion or ulcer, or your dog may have a number of other conditions. Best advice - see your veterinarian.


Answer by  Ashley68 (404)

Eye infections and conjunctivitis are two very common conditions in Cocker Spaniels. To fix the problem, try to keep your dog's eyes as clean as possible. It's also a good idea to purchase antibacterial drops that you can apply to the dog's eyes when necessary. This helps to keep the eyes clean and clear of any sort of dirt or irritation.

If it is very thick and returns within a few hours after being cleaned off with a damp cloth, see a Vet to rule out infection or eye damage.
