Hello, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with Toffe today.


Can you tell me how long he has had issues with his eye?


When you say it does dry/white/grey, do you mean the normally clear cover over the eye (the cornea)?


Any redness?


Does he get thick discharge from this eye?


Has he ever been tested to make sure he has proper tear flow to that eye?


What gel are you using?
