It is just a thick version of the drops. I use Genteal for severe dry eye gel for Mikey's other eye problems and have used that in the tub and it works just fine. Otherwise any ointment-style artificial tears (it will be with the drops at the drug store) is fine. Most pet catologs also sell it.

Thank you for the info. I have been using baby shampoo on Lacey's face to wash but once in a while I will notice that after I am done she gets some eye goop for a day or two.

If you get shampoo in her eyes, it can cause ulcers and discomfort. You can use a little artificial tears ointment in her eyes before her bath to prevent irritation.

I put Tuffy in his doggles to keep the water & soap out of his eyes and then take them off right at the end to wash his face off. An added perk of the doggles is that he stays super still in the bathtub.

I find Johnson's shampoo to be drying. I prefer to use Absolutely Natural shampoo which is very gentle, tearless, and seems to condition the face decently as well. I would use a gentle, tearless puppy shampoo on the face.

JMM, have you tried Aveno oatmeal baby wash? My vet recommended it for puppies. I've been using it and it doesn't seem to bother our pup's eyes.
