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?
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.
