Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Itchy Eyes   Tue Feb 05, 2013 1:33 pm

For the past few month's Hayden has developed this thing where he is obsessed with us itching his eyes. It's sort of gross, I will rub his eyes and he will start kicking his leg's and he absolutely loves it. At first I thought it was cute, but now I'm wondering if there's a reason his eyes are so itchy. Last night he was really restless right before bed and he took his nose towards my hand, nudging me towards his eyes as if saying "itch my eyes" and after I itched them, he calmed right now. I know some huskies can have eye problems, so I'm worried this could be something medical. Should I be worried or has anyone ever heard of a dog liking their eyes itched?

I tried googling this and haven't came up with anything.

my guy has itchy eyes as well, though he does ask us to itch them for him. his eyes had been leaking and itchy for nearly the whole summer, we thought it was allergies, but after developing other symptoms we found out that he had hypothyroidism. we put him on meds for it and the leaking has stopped, but his itching has not, the vet has no idea what it could be as his eyes are healthy aside from him itching them

Is there any discharge with the itching? Have you considered having her eyes checked for the usual eye suspects (glaucoma, Juvenile cataracts, etc)?

No discharge or anything unusual aside from him just wanting us to itch his eyes. I plan on taking him to the vet and getting it checked out.

You may have to go to a vet ophthalmologist for definitive answers
