Hi. A few days ago our Rat Terrier (who's 5 yrs. old) his eye was a little red. But now and then he gets the sneeze's which is with an allergy so we know that... we didn't think anything about it. Then the next day we saw his eye watery and we flushed it out (to make sure there wasn't anything lodged or loose in there) yesterday and now it seems/looks that its swollen, undernieth (like a bubble?) its a raised circle and puffy, we bought some cleaner solution the soothes pain (he seems fine..) and to flush anything out. until we can get him to the vet. We're making an appointmet tomorrow to get him checked out this week. I was just wondering if anyone has heard of symtoms like this? If so what was wrong? How did it happen? It really confuse's me cuz he doesn't go in tall grass or anything... no rocks... so i don't know what it can be....and would like some feedback in between this vet visit! :( Thanks!
My dog romeo is having the same symptoms this morning! I think he may have gotten soap in his eye yesterday while I was bathing him! I put a call in to his vet who will be calling back later this afternoon.
Hello there, Without seeing a picture it's hard to tell. From the sounds of it I would assume it's cherry eye. The breeds with the bulgier eyes suffer from this alot. Bostons, Bulldogs, Shih Tzus etc, however really any dog can get it.. It does take a surgical procedure to fix, however not very expensive. I had a Shih Tzu with this, the surgery was 40 dollars.
This is a picture I found threw google of a dog suffering from Cherry Eye.
Its like, lower lid. not IN his eye, lower lid. just, lower lid. He has a black face, and where there was fur by his eye, where its swollen, there isn't and its white, about the size of a dime and a little bit poofy and some discharge coming out of that eye. He's 5 years old and gets watery eyes. We bought him medicine thats soothing it.. He's not in pain with the drops. Just was wondering what you guys thought, or have experianced this, He has a appointment next week since they don't think its too serious, We should keep putting the drops in, but if it doesn't go away, we gotta bring him in... I just think its weird. We havn't had a dog that had it "develop" like that before, and for his fur to turn white where the thing is. Thanks for your concern. I don't even know where to look this up! and i saw the pictures... and it doesn't look at all like cherry eye (not pink, and not coming from the inside of the lower eye) it seems to be outter?.. haha... I hope you guys know more then i do. At least he's feeling better ^_^ ....
