Last year, I rescued a cocker spaniel. By "rescue" I mean I found her wandering in the road, with no tags, covered in dirt and knotted fur. I've never owned a cocker, and was unprepared for all of the grooming needs. Her eyes get dry, red, and overproduce tears. These artificial tears help reduce the redness, dryness and overproduction of tears. She does not mind them at all. She lets me drop them directly onto her eyeballs, then we snuggle, face to face, to keep her eyes closed so the tears can soak in.
