Ever since adding ACV, which I have stopped, my chi has been scratching her head, ears & eyes. Most of the scratching is centralized to her eyes. On the chi medical kit, there is an eye wash, but I don't know what that is. Is there any drops you use? I've been using warm wash clothes & baby wipes. There isn't any abnormal discharge and her eyes look clear. They are a little watery once. Although she has allergies, I suspect she might have a cold as everyone in the house has been suffering from colds.

If they are really itchy, I wonder if somethig over the counter like alawy eye drops which is an antihistamine would be okay to use once or twice.

Maybe your vet could tell you if somehign like that is safe to use.

I always have a bottle of itch relief and redness relief eye drops on hand (I like the Visene brand). You can pretty much use these as often as needed.

Poor Midgie seems constantly plagued :( Hope she feels better soon.

FWIW...I've been told by my vet to use the natural tears or saline solution type eyedrops and stay away from the brands that have added drugs for dryness/redness/allergy relief etc.
