Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
I am sorry Charlie is not feeling well. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Is he drinking more than usual?
2- Is the discharge in one or both eyes?
Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. Thank you for answering all of my questions.
I am sorry Charlie is not feeling well, I am sure this must be a little stressful for you. In response to your question, the green color discharge is consistent with an infection in the eye. Flushing the eye with sterile water is a great idea, I would encourage you to continue doing this, but, Charlie should be seen by your family veterinarian for prescription topical antibiotics. My other concern is the weight loss and that he may be drinking more than usual. You see, these symptoms could be related to kidney disease, hormonal disorders (diabetes, hyperthyroidism), and even cancer to name a few causes. It is important that he has a blood test done to rule out most of the above-mentioned diseases. Unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can do at home without knowing exactly what is wrong with Charlie. For example, if he is hyperthyroid he will be placed on medication to help lower the thyroid levels. In turn, this will help him gain weight. So, treatment for Charlie will be based on exam and test results.
I realize that this answer may not be to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
