Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry to hear about your dog. Can you please answer a few additional questions today:- Breed and age- What part of the eye is red, is it general red or localized- Is he rubbing or closing the eye
Can you see through the cornea or is it hazy/ red?
If the cornea is hazy then please find a veterinary clinic today, I wouldn't wait until tomorrow in case there is a corneal ulceration or bleeding into the anterior chamber of the eye as this really should be evaluated sooner rather than laterPlease let me know any additional questions I can assist with today

Moreso. If the white was red then this is similar to a black eye but if the blood is in the colored part this is where I would advise the exam. Sorry I know you would prefer to wait but the inside of the eye is bleeding and this can cause an increase in pressure within the eye. The reason the eye is retracted is pain. Even though he isn't showing any outward sign of pain this is the body's automatic response to pain within the globe
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both today, I will be taking a dinner break in the next 20 minutes
