My jack russell sometimes gets a brown discharge from her eyes. Anyone know why this is? She's healthy other wise.
We normally just wipe it away with some tissue but it still turns my stomach,yuk.

Maybe its an eye infection, I would take to the vet. My JRT had discharge from her eyes and we got some cream to put in.

Are you sure you've got the dog the right way round?

is it poodle eye?

Poodle Eye

This problem, in which brown stains appear at the corner of the eye, is common to several toy breeds, including Toy Poodles, Lhasa Apsos, Maltese, Pomeranians, Pekingese, and others.

The exact cause of tear overflow in these breeds is unknown. One theory is that susceptible breeds have a pooling space that is too small to collect a lake of tears. Tears contain chemicals that react with light to produce reddish-brown stains. The staining will be more apparent in dogs whose haircoat is light colored or white. This is primarily a cosmetic problem.
