Hi!!
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 21 days ago.

Please clarify "spill" for me.  Can you upload a close-up photo of the eye with eyelids parted to our conversation?  You can upload photos by texting them, or by using the paperclip or add file icons above your message box...if you can see those icons on your device.  You can also use an external app such as dropbox or navigate to justanswer.com/help/using-justanswer and scroll down to "other".

Yesterday morning my dog ​​had a small bump. I noticed that he has a blood stain on his eye. I want to know if it is normal because of the blow or what should I do?

He's fine. Just like he always doesn't have any pain or anything, just that stain.

Thank you,.

I see scleral hemorrhage but I can't assess inside the eyeball from here.  These dogs should have their entire eye examined with a handheld ophthalmoscope.  Inflammation inside the eyeball can be sight-threatening.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

Do you recommend I take him to the vet?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 21 days ago.

That would be prudent, yes.  Please continue in this conversation if you wish.
