Eye antibiotics come in the form of liquid drops or ointment. Follow your vet's instructions for antibiotic dosage. Start by cleaning any discharge from around the eye. Then use your thumb and forefinger to hold the dogs eyelids open, with your palm and other fingers supporting your dog's jaw and head. With your other hand, administer the antibiotic directly on the eyeball. Do not allow the tip of the dropper to touch the eyeball. Release the dog so he can blink and spread the medicine around his eye. If you are using an ointment, massage the eyelids gently to help spread the medication. Finally, praise and reward your dog for good behavior.
