Shar pei Puppy's eyes
Hi. How do I go about cleaning my puppies eyes.
They tend to have more matter in the mornings.
I've just been using damp cotton wool to clean them but it doesn't seem to be working.

Shar Pei dogs have a multitude of skin problems, affecting the eyes. Usually the eyelids are either rolled in resulting on extra hair on the eye, or rolled out, or there are abnormal hair on the eyelids stretching the eyes. You will need to go see your vet to determine what the problem in this puppy is. Many of these dogs will need surgery to correct the problems that have have been bred into them.
