I used tea tree on my dog to clear his eyes unaware of the consiquences, I had diluted it with water and also aloe Vera, I'm panicking because I don't know what to do, he is miniature dachshund, he's very sleepy at the moment, my mother is telling me he is fine but I'm not convinced.

I must seem really
Stupid, no he's 7 I'm 20 and he's a male dog, no I just rubbed it over his eyes not put it directly in
Hello again Jennifer,

No problem! Very glad to talk things over with you further ..

If you just put it over his eyes and then flushed his eyes out thoroughly with water shortly afterwards then I would be very surprised if this will affect Dylan in the slightest.

I think you can safely forget this incident ...

Kindest regards,
