Hi there. I have a 2 year old dog. We think it is a cross between a corgi and a Chiquaqua. Anyways there is a clear goopy substance directly on her eyeball. Anyone have any ideas what this might be? Can I treat it with saline solution? Doesnt seem to be something I need to rush her to the vet for. any help is apreciated.

all my pets get the eye boogers in the corners of their eyes... you know, the dry crusty stuff...anyway, sometimes the eyebooger sort of sticks to the eye ball...that is what your description sounds like to me...i don't think that the saline solution is necessary, but i don't see what it would hurt...

keep in mind, that since i have no medical training and i can't see her, i'm just throwing a thought at you;) maybe give your vet a call and check????

does she seem bothered by it? any rubbing/scratching etc? is the amount of the goop excessive? if you answered yes to any of these, then definitely give your vet a call.

Chihuahua's -and most small light colored dogs seem prone to yucky eye boogers.

As Fawkese said, we can't see it and aren't vets but since it's a small amount and not bothering her likely not a big deal ;)

Just ensure it's sterile saline and should totally be fine to give that a try :)
