Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
Thank you for your question.
What breed is Daisy?
Could you please send a clear photo of her eyes?
Any other signs such as eye discharge, eye rubbing or squinting?
Great thank you.
Would a photo of her eyes be possible so I can assess her 3rd eyelids?
You can also email me at***@******.***
Have you noticed any other signs at all; perhaps a slight facial droop, loss of muscle mass or head shaking?
Hopefully you can send those photos so I can provide the best advice possible.
Absolutely, the more information the better.
Ah, I see there was a typo in my original address; sorry about this.
Thank you for these photos.
In the photos you have sent, the third eyelid is not visible.
As her eyes look normal in the photo, it is difficult to offer a specific answer.
It may be that her 3rd eyelid is slightly inflamed or that there is a neurological issue.
As this is new in the last few weeks, a vet visit is sensible.
They will examine Daisy's eyes throughly and assess her vision and reflexes. They should look into the back of her eyes with an ophthalmoscope and may measure the intra-ocular pressure to ensure it is not too high.
Her signs may not be a sign of anything worrying but it is sensible to ensure all is well.
This window stays open so you can keep me updated and ask any further questions you may have. Take care.
