I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello, you're through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

Hopefully I can help today.

Does Bella have a lump?

Could you please send a photo for me to assess?

Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 16 days ago.

Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try.

Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.

A new lump in or near the eye needs to be examined by a vet in case it is scratching the cornea as it may cause an ulcer or infection.

Potential causes would include a blocked gland, cyst, foreign body reaction or insect sting.

If there is discharge, this can be cleaned with cotton wool and saline.

If he is rubbing, protect the eye from damage by using a buster collar.

Hopefully he can  be seen soon and please feel free to keep me updated.

Take Care,

Thank you for this photo.The photo is quite dark and unclear which makes it difficult to assess fully.Can I confirm her eye is watery and she is squinting?Has she been rubbing or scratching at her eye?
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Hi Please check if you can see now please?
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 16 days ago.

Ok, thank you.I am just typing my full reply
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
That's OK.
But I'm worried
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 16 days ago.
I understand your concern, it's never nice when there is something going on with our pets.Bella's eye looks uncomfortable and there is definitely something going on.I actually don't think she has a lump per se, I think the rubbing had caused fur loss and inflammation which looks like a lump.There are a few possibilities including a bacterial infection, eye ulcer, entropion (when the eyelid curls in), foreign body etc.She does need to see a vet ASAP so we can have her eye examined and determine what is going on.The vet will check the eye and will likely stain it for any ulcers.Treatment will depend on what is going on and may include anti inflammatories and antibiotic eye drops.For now, use cotton wool and warm water to gently clena the eye. It is important she doesn't rub so use a buster collar to protect her eye from damage.I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions,Take care,Linda.

Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 16 days ago.
É verdade, por favor não da.
Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Now I need wait tomorrow to do something?
Are you can do anything online or video call?
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 16 days ago.
The scissors may have nicked her skin when she was being groomed or she may have gotten some shampoo in her eye, or developed an infection from the equipment.Please DO NOT give human medicine. This is not the best thing for her and could be dangerous.If very concerned and you think she is in pain or distressed, you could go to an emergency vet tonight. However, you should be OK to wait and bring her to your vet tomorrow morning.No prescription medicine can be given online, no. She needs to see a vet in person who can examine and stain her eye.
