Hello,
I am sorry to hear about your Bichon's eye. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian, and will do my best to help.

When you took her to the vet, was a test with a green dye done, to see if the cornea ( clear surface of the eye) was scratched or damaged?

Where in her eye do you see the blood?

What are in the drops you are using, or what is the name of them?

This is an Info Request, to help me answer your question.

Yes he did that test and said he could not see anything wrong the drops were just to wash the eye out and moisterning the eye

Thank you.

Where in the eye is the blood drop? On the surface, or deeper?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
The blood drop is on the surface
Expert:  Rebecca replied 3 years ago.
Then it is probably in the cornea, or just below it. It could be related to the injury.

Do you know what is in the drops you are giving? It may be that she needs more time and medication to heal, and that the blood spot is like a bruise you would have a week after injuring your skin or muscle.

If so, and if the eye is not bothering her, I would continue the drops and watch to see if the blood spot is getting smaller.

It would help to be able to see it. Having your vet check it when they are open would be a good idea.

Please let me know what else I can answer, or help with.
