Default Pink eye

Can dogs get pink eye? Looks like my little fur babies eye is all pink and has a slight mattering to it. I have an apt for the vet tomorrow.

Yes they can get pink eye. It's good you have an appointment with the vet so you can get the medication to clear it up. Hope all goes well.

Can't pink eye be passed to pups from two-legged people and vice-versa?

Two of mine had it this summer. They had it at different times, and the vet thought it was environmental allergies! The ointment cleared it up.

Um, our vet told us it was NOT transferable from dog to human and vice versa...

It is very important to get it checked out by a vet... untreated pink eye is how Lisa Left Eye lost her eye before we adopted her!
