Our resident APD or Accredited Practising Dietician Caitlyn from Healthy Lifestyles Australia helps hundreds of people every year and she’s happy to help all of us all in this short chat we had recently.

Did you know your eyes produce mucus which washes away dust and other irritating stuff in the air every time you blink? But when you’re asleep and obviously not blinking that mucusy stuff doesn’t get washed away and you end up with crusty stuff when you wake up – politely known as ‘sleep’ in your eyes or better known as eye boogers. Our pets get it too and it’s perfectly normal… most of the time…but not always and if you notice any chances in your pet’s eye boogers you really should see your vet as your pet’s sight can be at risk. Dr Barbara Fougere from All Natural Vet in Sydney, who’s a longtime pal and Internationally renown Integrative Veterinarian, author and lecturer explains why.
