Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts ASAP
Hello and Thank You for contacting JustAnswerI am sorry to hear your baby is having trouble.
Can you tell me where this is on the eye
How long has it been there
What does it look like,size, color etc
It is located within the eyelashes of the lid.
It is .5 cm across and it is pinky red. There's no head on it.
A stye can develop along the edges of the eye at the eyelashes due to a clogged follicle.The swelling normally indicates an infection which may require oral antibiotics to clear up. You do not want to squeeze this, you can however apply warm compresses several times a day to see if this will help it burst on its own.
If after 3 days of warm compresses the lump is still there I would suggest having him seen by your vet to rule out a more dangerous tumor.Never use human eye meds with out the advise of your vet doing so can cause irreversible damage to the eye
If she begins pawing at the eye or the lump gets larger you should have her seen right away.
I hope this has been helpful,please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns
