Feb 14, 2013 - Add one cup of distilled or filtered water and 1 tsp of salt. Use this solution to rinse out the dog's eye with an eyedropper 2-3 times a day. This will help reduce the irritation and inflammation of the dog eye infection, promoting a better healing process.
Natural Eye Wash for Eye Problems Goldenseal has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as an eyewash for dogs with mild conjunctivitis. Combining the soothing properties of chamomile with goldenseal increases the benefits. Make a chamomile tea (see inset), let it cool then strain it through a coffee filter or layered cheesecloth. Mix the chamomile tea with plain saline solution (three parts saline to one part tea) and then add three to four drops of goldenseal tincture. Use this mixture to rinse inflamed eyes. Note: Goldenseal is considered an at-risk plant due to overharvesting and destruction of its natural wild habitat. If you are going to use it, you should look for an organically cultivated source.

Espree Natural Aloe Optisoothe Eye Wash for Dogs & Cats.
If you prefer to go the natural route for lubricating your dog's eyes, talk to your vet about herbs or homeopathic treatment. Your vet may recommend a drop or two of cod liver oil in your dog's eyes once a day, supplemented with the same oil added to his food -- about an 1/8 teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight. Herbal eye washes can clear dirt from your dog's eyes; calendula, echinacea, St. John's wort and eyebright are all options for making an eyewash. Simply add ¼ teaspoon of salt to a cup of boiled distilled water, stirring to dissolve the salt. Allow the water to cool and add 10 drops of your preferred herb tincture to the water. You can clean your pup's eyes gently with a sterile gauze pad soaked in the solution or put a few drops in his eyes for relief.While dozens of eye wash solutions are out there, clogging up the store shelves, there really is a better way. Even as a pharmacist who deals with synthetics daily, I love taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Natural eyewash solutions can be rather harsh and irritating, ironically. For example, Ark Natural's has an eyewash solution that actually stings when placed in the eye area---I've personally tried it. Pets feel the burning sensation too---it contains aloe vera (not the wisest choice as the rind saponins in the sap are toxic to cats and dogs) and witch hazel (probably the culprit behind the stinging). This is just one example of many. I recommend making a DIY, natural, fresh, and extremely effective chamomile eyewash solution. If you are looking for a natural home remedy to clean your dog's tear stains, several herbs may be effective. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties and can help combat the bacteria and fungi that may grow in tear stains. Calendula, an herb often used to treat wounds, is effective against a number of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Euphrasia, also called eyebright, is an herb often used to treat eye infections. Though it is typically administered as a tonic, you can use it as an eyewash to treat tear stains.
