Pay Attention When Cleaning Your Dog's Eyes!

Use a soft clean cloth. Make sure that you buy the diaper you will use, preferably from a petshop and is suitable for use on dogs.

Avoid paper towels, napkins and wipes. When they get wet, this type of paper product is scattered, leaving the risk of small particles in your dog's eyes, so it is always more logical to use a washcloth or towel.
