Editor Suggestion: When Your Dog's Eye is Sensitive to Touch and Light

Hi Dot,

Sorry to hear about your dog's eye sensitivity problem.

Eye discharge and sensitivity to touch and light might be signs of an eye infection, injury, or other issues in your dog. It's important to have your dog examined by a veterinarian to diagnose the issue and get appropriate treatment.

In the meantime, you can try to make your dog more comfortable by providing a quiet and dimly lit space to help reduce the sensitivity to light. Building trust with your new dog is important, especially when they are experiencing discomfort. Be patient and give her time to adjust to her new environment. Offer treats, engage in gentle play, and talk to her softly to help build a positive relationship.

Again, please consult with a veterinarian as soon as possible to address your dog's eye issue and get proper care.

Let us know what the diagnosis was.
