Good morning. My name is***** I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help you and Toffee.How long has her eye been like this?Can you post a picture of her eye for me to see?
How old is Toffee?
Thanks for the picture. The layer you see in the corner of her eye is her third eyelid. It is not normally seen unless there is an infection or pain in the eye.There is a red/brown discharge from the eye. It looks like there might also be discharge from her nose?You can try some Terramycin eye ointment. It is over the counter in pet stores and farm supply stores, except in California.
It could be an infection, or an allergic reaction.Terramycine is the only antibiotic eye ointment you can get without a prescription. You can try eye drops for people, such as Refresh drops.
You are welcome. Please let me know how she is doing and if you have additional questions.
You are welcome. You can send me updates, photos, and ask questions by picking up this chat again or by going to My Questions on the Just Answer website and I will respond when I am next online.I will be checking back. Thanks for using our site.
Good morning; this is Dr. Rebecca following up to see if you have additional questions. How is Toffee's eye?
Thank you for the update. I would hope you see improvement in a day or two after starting the medication.
You are welcome. Please let me know how Toffee is doing.
You are welcome.
It is probably time to have this checked by a veterinarian. I can't really see the eye at all.
Please let me know what you find out.
I can see her eye in this picture, which is good, but the bleeding and the severe swelling around the eye still worry me. What I can see of her actual eyeball looks good.
I would need to be able to examine her in person to tell you that. I can't tell from the picture.
You are welcome. Please let me know what you find out. It is good to see her eye looks OK.
