Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
This displacement of the third eyelid tells us that there is a problem but we do not know what the problem is until we can run diagnostics. Since one eye is bulging, the possibilities for this is Glaucoma, infection such as an abscess behind Patches eye or tumors. It is very important, considering Patches age, that tests be run to determine what is causing this in your sweet gal, Patches. The testing will determine what treatment is best. Infection and/or an abscess will be drained and treated with antibiotics. Glaucoma is treated with medications to decrease the fluid filling the eye and a tumor will be treated by what is the nature of the mass.
For now, continue with the treatment you are doing until you can see your vet for further testing.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
