Yellow is generally not a good sign. I would get her to the vet as soon as possible. Sounds like you're on top of things, so just keep an eye on it.

Have you noticed any sneezing or coughing as well? Combined with those symtoms, she could be getting kennel cough (Nelli had it her first week from the pound, eye's cleared up in two days after giving her meds).

Your dog has such pretty eyes, make sure you keep em that way :-)

My dogs constantly have eye boogers/goobers. Especially my younger 2. Aiko had yellowy-green eye boogers once & I took her to the vet & they gave me some ointment to put on her tear ducts. It helped right away...

If the dog doesn't have ANY other symptoms, what could the problem be? The rescue ladu I work with said that they can get really bad during teething (which my youngest is just finishing), and then clear up afterwards. Is this true?

im taking penny to the vet today.. this morning i woke up and saw penny had a large amount of eye boogers all over her eyes.. its weird she doesnt look uncomfortable or anything. but her eyes were almost glued closed with all the eye boogers. hope its nothing serious

She probably has an infection in her tear ducts - or some kind of infection. Aiko had lots of goop like you described when I took her in for it.

It will clear up with some ointment. Don't worry! But definitely take care of it right away - as if left as is, can cause all sorts of problems, including blindness! (This is what my vet told me, not my opinion.)

Hope your pup get better soon :thumbsup:

penny will be fine. the vet gave me some ointment and some antihistamines. my vet said it might be an alergic reaction to pollen or other stuff in the grass, dirt. etc. he said it should be fine with in 2 weeks. and she gots a check up in 2 weeks.. so i hope all is well
thanks for your replys

Have you changed foods recently?

My mother's standard poodle gets horrible eye boogers if she eats anything with wheat in it.
