My apbt Star got up this morning and her eye is swollen and the white part is totally red and full of slime. She looks to be bothered by it so I got an appoitment for today(thank god)at 6:00 whicch is a favor to me I love my vet for that.Has anyone else experianced this?
when my dog was at the groomers last year, she got a hunk of fur in her eye. as you would expect, it itched, and she tried to scratch it. in doing so, she scratched her eye. it swelled up terribly, was all red, and oozed. she had to get one of those cones to wear around her neck and had to keep it on for a week. she got some gel to put in it from the vet and it was all better after a week or so. she was really lucky that she didn't blind herself...you're dog could have scratched itself or gotten something in her eye. i'm sure that it will be fine and hopefully it isn't something to worry too much about. keep us posted!!
I am back from the vet and they said she will be fine there is an infection in the tissue around the eye which caused it to swell. She has creme and an oral antibiotic that she needs 2x a day. The bad thing is that it could be contagious to the other dogs so i'll have to keep a good eye on them.
