Bulldog Dry Eye

Unique Breed, Common Conditions

Bulldog Dry Eye can be a common condition in bulldogs and a few other breeds but can be treated at home with our advice. Also known as Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca’, the dryness of the membrane covering the surface of the eye. Bulldog’s eyes are very sensitive and due to the nature of their skin folds, the areas around the eyes and muzzle on their face can become tear stained and dirty.

It is recommended that you wipe your dog’s face daily to prevent excess moisture with a non-fragrance baby wipe or wet towel and dry them afterwards. This will help with certain skin conditions your Bulldog could develop too. Bulldog Dry eye is something that will more likely develop in senior dogs when their tear ducts decrease tear production. There is not a simple treatment that will cure this entirely as the breed is known to develop such conditions. Yet keeping the eye area clean will prevent crusty eyes and the surrounding areas from being affected too.

Book in to see your vet if your Bulldog has started to show signs of tear staining. It’s usually harmless but could be the result of an eye problem. Bulldog Dry Eye can be treated with lubricating eye drops and a preventative too.
