How can u tell if a dog's eye is scratched? and how can u brush a non cooperative dog's teeth?

i crammed everything in my question so that i wont lose 5 more points to ask the teeth question.

How can u tell if a dog%26#039;s eye is scratched? and how can u brush a non cooperative dog%26#039;s teeth?
I don%26#039;t know about the eye being scratched part.(Though I think that if the eye is red and looks irritated, you should get it checked out just to be safe!) but my dog really doesn%26#039;t like it when I brush her teeth. She rolls over onto her back and waves her paws in my face. I can just take the toothbrush out of the closet and she will try to run away. I%26#039;ve found that taking her into a small room(I lure her into my bathroom and shut the door) calms her down so I can just grab her face and brush those stinky teeth! She%26#039;s a large dog(100lb Golden Retriever) but this seems to work for me!

Good luck!
Reply:try flavoured dog toothpaste or instead by some denta bones or we have some bones that we found at walmart that are whit with blue dots.
Reply:eyes: go to a specialised vet

teeth: buy him some special chews for teeth, other than that either train the dog to obey you or have the vet do the teeth cleaning by giving the dog some sedative, once a year or so, together with other tests he may need.
Reply:I would say don%26#039;t brush them at all, instead do these two things:

1.) Feed only dry dog food, it doesn%26#039;t get stuck and/or set in there teeth like wet food does.

2.) Use a Dent-a-Bone, or something like it, this will help them.
Reply:If you think that your dogs eye is scratched a trip to the vet is in order. Your veterinarian will use a special stain, stain the eye and then look at it with a special light. If it is scratched your veterinarian will provide you with medication to treat the eye. Eyes in dogs and cats are extremely sensitive just like a persons, so if you have any doubts about a scratch please see your veterinarian to avoid an eye problem with your dog. Good Luck.
