There are several factors that can be the cause of eye problems for your pet including disease, aging, injury, foreign objects in the eye, allergies, dust, eye dryness, infection, too much sunlight, even sticking their head out the car window while you drive. How your veterinarian decides to treat your pet will depend on your pet's particular problem - if it is an eye infection they may prescribe an antibiotic, or other issues may mandate an anti-inflammatory, or they may need both. There are also rx meds to help with pain, injury and other specific disease issues such as glaucoma.
