Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Diesel. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Is there a discharge present? If so, what color is it (yellow, green or clear, for example)?

2. Is he rubbing at his eye?

3. Do you think you could send me a picture of his eye. The following link walks you through the process:

4. Does he by any chance stick his head out of the window while you're driving?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
