Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet with 10 years of clinical experience.
I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Dolly.
Had you noticed her squinting or a runny or red eye prior to this?
Is she rubbing or scratching at her eye?
Would a photo of her eye be possible please?
Hi there, could you see my most recent response?
Without further information or a photo it is difficult for me to provide the best advice but I will certainly try.
Please reply when you can and we can continue the conversation.
Dolly's signs could have a few causes including:
It is important we get Dolly to a vet who will be able to check her over and examine her eye.
They may stain for any ulcers and measure her tear production.
They should also flush her eye through to remove any debris or foreign material.
Dolly's treatment will depend on what is going on and may include e.g. topical antibiotic drops and oral anti inflammatories.
If she is starting to rub, a buster collar should be used to protect the eye.
We can also use cotton wool and warm water to bathe the eye twice daily, removing any crust.
Hopefully this has been useful and please do let me know if there is anything else.
Wishing Dolly all the very best.
