Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
How old is your dog?
Does it look like this?
No, it is oval shaped. About the size of Pea.
Without testing, hard to know.
It can be a benign meibomian gland adenoma.
It can also be a true cancer, carcinoma or sarcoma.
Has a small opening and it is bleeding just a little bit
In an older pet - best to have this evaluated.
At times, when bleeding and irritating the eye, even if benign - best to just have it removed.
This will prevent trauma to the cornea, continued bleeding, and risk of infection
ok we plan to take her to the vet tomorrow
Good - that would be well worth it here.
Should we put anything on it for now?
An e-collar to prevent further scratching / pawing at the lesion
Don't have that. Should we dry the blood with a paper towel?
Yes - you can gently pat the area.
Ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX input. Worth the money.
Glad to help!
