Dry eye does not sound like a severe aliment; nevertheless this condition can cause immense soreness for a Yorkie dog. There is a natural film that shelters a Yorkie dog's eyes. Without it, the dog's eye is not sheltered. The eye becomes very dehydrated, leading to numerous health problems. This can occur because of many reasons including: an wound to the eye, a dog not receiving appropriate nutrition, a mis-firing thyroid, infection or side effect from medicine.
* This is also at times called "Brown eye", as the eye may build up a brown tinted film
* Scar tissue may emerge on the dog's eye
*A cutting pain that is usually steady, as the eye loses all lubrication
* Blood vessels may grow quickly throughout the dog's eye
