Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Thank you for the thorough history and am appreciative of the fact you caught this but I do advise having a veterinary exam asap to ensure that the pressure in that eye is not elevated, an indication of glaucoma. If not caught in time it can lead to blindness due to retinal detachment and this is not reversible. In addition as it progresses it can become quite painful to her.Very unlikely this is related to the mass on her ear but it is possible. My priority is not losing vision in this eye and I would consider a veterinary er tonight versus waiting until tomorrow. Often regular veterinary clinics do not have tonopens to measure eye pressure where a veterinary er would and beginning treatment asap is keyCLICK HERE for more information on this conditionPlease let me know how else I can assist you both today, I do not intend to frighten you but do want to ensure we do not lose sight in Roxy's eye by delaying medical therapy
