Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi there, this is Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for her.
Does she rub or scratch at the eye?
Is she squinting or is there any discharge from her eye?
Would a photo of the lesion be possible please?
Great, thanks. I'll let you know when it comes through.
I am just downloading it now.
A lesion like this can be a number of things including a meibomian gland cyst, wart or tumour.
It looks like it may be scratching her eye a little, which could explain the tearing.
We'd worry about a corneal ulcer and/or mild infection.
As it is growing, I'd want us to either sample or remove it.
I'd also want her eye stained for ulcers and suspect she'll need some antibiotic eye drops.
The vet may treated medically now and surgically after delivery, depending on what is found.
At home, we are limited.
We should bathe the eye with cotton wool and warm water regularly.
The sooner she can be seen the better as it is her eye affected.
