Yes, it is normal to have bleeding after a biopsy. Usually it's pretty minimal and stops on its' own. If it's still bleeding and/or oozing a lot, you can apply a cold compress (if she'll tolerate it) for 5-10 minutes. Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions! - Dr. C

What does the white spot on her eye look like to you? ( the vet took most of it in the biopsy)
Expert:  JACUSTOMER-2ggpt01r- replied 4 months ago.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's just some scar tissue from a small chronic foreign body- you know how horses like to create excess granulation tissue! But you will hopefully have the biopsy results back soon and have a definitive answer that way. What did your vet think it was?
