We have so many dogs that come in with very crusty eyes. We often have to shave out weeks worth of eye boogies. The eye area is not only very sensitive, but very delicate as well. The eye boogies collect over time and create a shell of moist bacteria. This can cause staining, infections, and eye irritation. Often when we have to shave out that area the dog ends up with irritations, razor burns, and sometimes nicks. The easiest solution? Wipe your dogs eyes daily. If you stay on top of it you can wipe their eyes with a Kleenex. Sometime a warm, wet cloth is needed to break up the gunk. And in extreme cases you need to seek a groomer, or even a vet!
