I have a friend she lives out in Labrador and she has a dobe named Titan, he's not a Doberiech dobe, but he's still sweet and huge, definitely outside the standard. He never seemed to have eye boogers here when they lived in Ontario, but since moving to Labrador it's gotten bad. Basically I'm looking to help her out and see what I can find out about what causes the eye (snot, boogers whatever you want to call it), and see if there is anything someone can suggest that she do...maybe you have had a similar situation, any advice would be appreciated. I'm gonna post a bit of out facebook chat to describe what she's seeing. The blue is her the italics are me...
Titan has the worst eye boogers of life, all the time! They go from me being able to wipe them out, to runny green discharge. We've had him seen by the vet here many times and he's on steroid drops every day, but sometimes they get really bad like they are now... have you guys any problems with yours??
When the vet gave you the drops do you remember what diagnosis he/she gave as well. Dogs like humans are susceptible to allergens and we are in the height of allergy season, fluctuations like you describe, along with the steroid makes me think allergies
There was another vet here for a short time so we brought him up and she diagnosed him with pannus which is a chronic condition and said he'd be on steroid drops forever. It's good when it works and usually does but certain times of the year it gets worse which made us to believe allergies as well.
Dobereich: Is anyone still having issues uploading pics?

Dobereich: So about the BBQ, does anyone have a preference to Sat or Sun? Once we nail down a day I can invite others.

Andreina: I like Saturday just because I don't have to rush home for work on a sunday

Dobereich: I think either day is OK for me, although the weather could be a big indicator.

Andreina: Yeah, true well we are open and I think everyone else is too? So maybe set for Sat and if the weather is bad we move to sunday?

Dobereich: ya, we could do that.

Dobereich: So far the weather is calling for 24 both days, no rain... but honestly, they can't predict a day ahead of time, I'm not trusting a 2 week forecast. LOL
