It started at the end of last year but the lid has progressively covered more of her eye in the last month. It doesn't seem like she's in pain although she now shys away a little when you go to pet her. Her vet thought an infection was causing the problem but antibiotics didn't clear it up. She has not been on any eye medication. A blood test did show that she did have some type of infection although the source was not determined. The vet thought it might be from her teeth/mouth because of her age and the condition of her teeth. The eyelid does not look inflamed but it is white. They were thinking of doing an x-ray to see if something was behind her eye (tumor) but at 14 years old I'm not sure I want to put her under to have that done.
Sorry, I just thought of something. The vet also put her on Previcox for her joints. Since that's a anti-inflammatory would that help or should I ask to have her put on Prednisone instead?
Thanks again, I really appreciate it. Have a great day.
