Can you upload a close-up photo(s) of Macy's eyes to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as You appear to be describing a hypersensitivity reaction - to vaccinations, environmental allergens such as pollens, molds, dust, and dust mites, etc., foods, drugs, chemicals, and even environmental variables. I would see how an over the counter antihistamine such as diphenhydramine (Benaryl) dosed at 1-2 mg/lb (maximum dose of 50 mg at any one time) and repeated in 8-12 hour intervals affects Macy. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
