Q. My dog got something in her eye now the white part of eye is red and has a green duscharge

A. You can try flushing it with water or hy optical solution but if it doesn't improve then you need to see your vet. It maybe that there is something still stuck in there or that it has caused trauma to the surface of the eye, or possibly an infection. Some eye problems can cause irreversible damage if left untreated for too long.
