I have a yorkie and his eyes run. After a couple days of not maintaining it it hardens on his coat until i use soap to clean it. If your animal have this same problem, should I take him to the vet and is there anything that you use for your pet to wash his coat if his eyes run.

Yorkies are very susceptible to bronchitis, so yes for sure have the vet check the dog out

I would take it to the vet to be safe .Some times long hair can irritate the eyes also I would try to trim or get that trimed .If the dog has eyes problems trimming this hair would help anyway and would be easier to medicate the eyes .

I have a short haired little dog (he's a miniature pinscher) and his eyes run sometimes. I asked the vet if there was anything wrong with him, and they said no. I think it all depends on the pup, and it's probably a good idea to take him to the vet. Since I know my pup is okay, i use dog cleaning cloths (I found them at target) They are kinda like baby wipes for your dog. I clean his eyes everyday, and never allow it to harden.
