CLyde's Right Eye

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm concerned about Clyde's right eye. He doesn't appear to have the symptoms of a cold, but he looks at me with his right eye half shut, and when I look at it closely it appears to be red rimmed. The inner eye looks OK, just the redness around the rim of the eyelid. Is this normal, or just a little irritated? Will it heal naturally or should I see the vet?

I've noticed no amounts of oozing other than the normal amount of sleep that accumulates occasionally (over the last 9 months) after he gets up.

Please advise.



BTW: I've got to change "Little Bit's" name to "Lotta Bit". She gained 3.5 lbs in 2.5 months.

THey are now on Drs. Foster & Smith Light Diet Maintenance Dry Food.

You don't mention how long he has had the problem.eyes can react in this way to an irritation,or scratch (just as people do).Howeveritcan also be a symptom of a more general infection. If it hasn't cleared quickly I would get in checked

Zoey had the weirdest thing a couple weeks ago.. her left eye was red and almost looked raw on the inner corner of her eye. Not the eyeball itself but just the inner corner. I thought maybe Saki scratched her or something so I monitored it for a couple days and it healed itself. I still dont really know what it is, but if it would have gotten worse I would have taken her to the vet. I'd say keep checking it and if it gets worse it could be infected and need antibiotics.
