Question:She has what looks like an ulcerated eye but below the eye and on her cheek seems to have swollen

Answer:It's hard for me to figure out what's going on from that description, but I don't like taking chances with eyes - better to have your veterinarian check her out. Eye ulcers can be pretty painful so the sooner the better.

Question:my shih-tzu has been diagnosed with dry eye in one eye per the Schirmer tear test. I am being told that she will need to use cyclosporin drops for life now. Can I treat with an OTC product first or should I just began her on this lifelong treatment? My dog will be 14 this year. She is currently on an eye antibiotic bid.

Answer:Cyclosporin ointment seems to work a lot better than OTC products like artificial tears. You usually only have to do it once a day vs ~3+ times a day with OTC products that still don't work as well. It depends on the severity of her condition as well.
