Green eye boogers (pink eye) ?

Tyson woke up with serious runny greenish eye boogers, with some redness in one eye not in the other, but they are both running green globs, i cleaned them up nicely, and treated them with some polysporin eye drops. My other dog who is close contact with him does not have red or runny eyes. He has not been doing anything out of the norm, and has not been around any new dogs, could this be a case of pink eye? he has not apparent swelling, just a little redness and boogers. I did switch him to raw last night, but i really highly doubt that could have anything to do with it. Offcourse if his eyes dont improve he will be off to the vets for a visit.

Poor Tyson. Could be pink eye. I agree with you I don't think switching to raw would have that reaction unless he got something in his eye which is pretty far fetched. Could be pannus though when my Sting developed it - the discharge was white.

Since the boogers are green, something is definitely going on. It could be pink eye or an infection, or maybe something is just in it. Reagan had eye boogers for awhile, but my vet told me only to worry if they were green or colored :/

Maybe give it a day and see if its just something in it that needs flushed ?

After wiping them softly with warm water, and treating with polysporin eye drops he woke up with no boogers, no runny eyes and no redness. I will keep the warm water cleaning going a few times a day and treat with eye drops until i see a solid 3 days with no eye goops. For now his eyes are clear,
