Asia has a smushed face, not quite so bad as a Persian, but that's the idea. She's 21 years old and over the past year or so she's had a lot of brownish eye discharge that creates massive black crusts around her nose (well before FD diagnosis). This was never a thing before. I wipe her eyes several times a day and it does little to stop the crusts from forming. They are so gunked on, I need a warm washcloth and a good 10 minutes to gently remove them...then they are back later in the day or the next day. I have asked 4 different vets about this and they all say it's nothing. One says it's like the tear staining on a white dog, another said it was always a thing but I probably notice it now because she's not grooming as well or as often. The thing is, she had a convenia shot for a UTI a couple months ago and randomly her eyes got clear for several weeks, no more discharge or crusties (and I wasn't wiping them because nothing to wipe, and she wasn't cleaning herself more than usual either). I asked a vet about this too, if there is some bacterial component, and he said could be, but still brushed it off as nothing. I can't tell if it bothers her in any way, but she's certainly bothered when I clean them off. Does anyone have experience with this? Know what it is? Know of some remedy or anything to help it?
