Customer Question

Went running with dog in wood. We were almost home and he wanted to ride rest of way in truck. His left eye is shut and right eye is is barely open. Brought him into house and have rag with ice cube on his left eye and waiting for him to cool down. both eyes have 'second' eyelid rising up over his eyes. Could this be a snakebite? Don't see a wound. Maybe just trauma or bad weed?

When we say his name or touch him then he wags his tail. Still laying with eyes closed. and being still. He is a yellow lab w/pyreneese. Thinking about eye wash or benedryl.

Gave him 50mg benedryl and he's eating. Nose is now cold. He has come into living room onto couch and resting.
