Should I worry if my dogs eyes are red? Bloodshot eyes can be the result of a variety of causes, some very minor and some much more serious that require immediate veterinary attention. The red discoloration of your dog’s eye(s) is due to the infiltration of blood vessels to either a small, irritated part of the eye or a more generalized condition.
What can I give my dog for his red eyes? Use a dog eyewash or saline solution to flush out your dog’s eye. You may need to put an Elizabethan collar on your pup to keep him from scratching and pawing at his eye. It is best to have your pup’s eye checked by a vet to make sure everything is clear.
