Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet with 10 years of clinical experience working out of West London. It will be my pleasure to help you today.
I'm sorry to hear to this and understand your concern for Teddy.
Are his eyes bothering him right now?
Is he prone to crusting?
Thank you, ***** *****
Could you please send a clear photo of the lump?
Thank you, ***** ***** just downloading this now?
Bless him, yes, I can see the issue.
Before typing my reply is there anything else I should know?
I'm sorry Teddy has this issue and understand your concern for him.
We can see the area is red and swollen and I can see quite a lot of discharhe.
There are several considerations here including:
Given the appearance, I suspect he needs some antibiotics and anti inflammatories.
A vet check is also important so we can check his tear production and ensure his tear duct is open.
At home, continue to bathe the eye as needed.
If he starts to rub the eye, you can protect the skin by using a buster collar.
Ok, sure thing.
