What Eye Drops For Humans Are Safe For Dogs To Use?

I think my dog has runny eyes – can I get some eye drops from the pharmacist that i could use on my dog?

Answer:

No No No! First of all – do not diagnose your pet! Always consult a vet.
 
It may cost some money – but your dog is your friend, and should be treated as such. You are not qualified to say if your dog even has an eye infection and needs medication. Secondly, some eye drops for humans contain nothing other than saline and herbal essences to sooth eyes. Completely safe for humans… Does this mean its ok for dogs? NO! Once again, dogs and humans are not the same. They need their own special drops. Think about chocolate – human chocolate and dog chocolate. Ours is great for us – but would make a dog very sick. Eye drops for humans should NEVER be used on dogs.
