Default Runny eyes

Is it natural for a Boxer to have such runny eyes? *What is the best way to clean the goo from around the eyes?

Sometimes babywipes are good. Winston gets eye boogers sometimes. ANd its very noticable since he is white.

I use a wet paper towel or my hand....nothing with chemicals on it.. Newt gets eye bugers cuz her ducts dont drain...and the Vet said it was fine, just make sure you keep them clean, she also digs with her face in the dirt sometimes and I noticed its worse in summer due to allergies and whatnot.

Shelby has stopped having eye boogers since I changed her food. *She used to get them when I fed her Innova puppy. *Now I feed Taste of the Wild and no more boogers. *If they get watery, I just wipe with my hand or I used the ear that is the closest to wipe it

WOW Michele........ I may have to change Newts food! Good point! I never thought of that, she has sniffles too and I always thought it was because of outside allergies but now I think I may try your kinda food and see if it works! Where do you get this food? I never heard of it!

I get it at a feed supply store. I googled it and it had a store locator. *I get the pacific stream flavor because it has the least amount of protein which is safe for puppies. *It is interesting, I put her food into a huge container to store and I think some of the Innova was left over in the bottom and sure enough she got a few boogery eyes when some of that got put in her bowl.
