Although the eyelids of the Spinone should be tight many have a slightly loose eyelid, which will enable foreign bodies such as dust and grass husks to become trapped.  If not removed these can set up an irritation and infection.

Most Spinone wake up with a slight collection of jelly in the corner of their eyes.  It is easy to remove this with a tissue.  If there is a green discharge this can very often be cured by irrigating with a saline solution (1 teaspoon of salt to ½ a cup of water) or cold

tea, two to three times a day for a few days.  If the problem is not resolved seek veterinary advice. There is a deformity of the eyelid called Entropian and Ectropian, some vets may suggest surgery at an early age and in most instances this may not be advisable, always speak to your breeder for advice.
