While ophthalmology is not my strong suit, this sounds like a case of dry eye (kerato conjunctivitis sicca). Any dog seen at my hospitals with chronic red eye or chronic discharge needs a schirmer tear test done, and a tonometry test to assess for glaucoma. Both of these conditions are serious but can be managed once theyre properly diagnosed.
