This morning when i was taking my dog Mollie outside to go to the bathroom i noticed that she had a big lump under her right eye, her eye is half closed and the lump feels hard. it dosnt seem to hurt her but shes not acting like herself. should i call the vet? what should i do?
It could be anything from an eye infection to something a lot more serious and unfortunately no one here will be able to tell you exactly what it is. I would call the vet and get the dog in asap. Could it be an insect bite? Does it seem to bother her?
it could be something as simple as a insect bite or sometimes the big premolar on the top gets infected and causes swelling under the eye. that swelling is usually found more to the side of under the eye and not directly under the lid part of the eye. can't really say w/out seeing her. either way a trip to the vet is in order if it doesn't go away by tomorrow.
