What are the best over the counter eye drops for dogs? I was using maxitrol given to me by the vet but wondered if I could get anything cheaper or more natural. My dog just gets runny eyes when I take her out and the vet tells me she suffers from dry eye. I get dry eye too, mainly my right eye which produces tears when I go out in the cold. My Loopyloo has the same problem and I wondered if maxitrol was actually safe and the right thing to use? I use witch hazel eye drops in my own eye but I don't know what is safe for dogs? Any advice greatly appreciated, thanks.
