Hi I need some ideas on what could be going on with a puppy that I sold a year ago! The lady I sold her to just sent me this email. Hey! Just wanted to update you on Cammie. These pics are al little old, but really great pics! She weighs just under 100lbs now and is still the greatest! haha. However, we are having a lot of problems medically with her right eye. I've had her at the vet several times: she's been on steroids, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories (spelling?), benadryl, and an antibiotic ointment for her eye. The vet says there isn't anything wrong with her actual eye - no damage and it isn't entropia (again not sure if that's the right spelling?), her lower lid isn't rolling into her eye, her eye isn't scratched or anything... but it constantly weeps, stays red, swollen, itches her, and sometimes is so swollen she can't even open it. She's had to wear the lamp shade thing around her neck and got so depressed it depressed me. She couldn't play with her toys, she had to back up to get out of the bathroom and hallways because she's so big, and the lamp shade thingy is so wide she had to back up to get out of the hallways.... it is sad. I take it off of her every so often but she'll start rubbing her eye again and irritate it so bad that I have to put it back on her. It's depressing. So, I was wondering if you had ANY idea of what else to look for? I don't know what to do and the vet is at a loss also.
Well, either give me a call or let me know by email if you have any ideas.... THANKS! I am hoping to get some ideas on what to tell her! Thanks in advance for any help!
My suggestion is to ask the vet to check for allergies. I had a dog that suffered from alot of allergies that made her eyes run and she started to have a runny nose and her eyes swelled up and we had to put an elizabethian collar on her too. Sounds like she may have some allergies.
