Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello,I would love to help I just have a few additional questions.Each answer is typed individually so please allow me a few minutes after your reply.
Is this on the outside of the eye or is the eye itself pink?
Any discharge from the eyes?
Is he itching or rubbing the eyes?
What breed is he and how long has the area been pink?
This is on the outside of the eye
Yes some dischrage from the eyes
No he is not itching or rubbing his eyes
he is a pit
Thank you for the additional information.
This breed commonly develops an over production of skin mites as pups and the most common area effected is the face
Here is additional information
Fungal infections mainly ringworm can also effect the face and is common in young pets
Chronic runny eyes from allergies, infection or problems with the eye lashes can also cause the area around the eyes to become red.
I would suggest getting this looked at by your vet to be sure the eye discharge is not due to infection or problems with the eyelashes as well as doing a simple skin scraping to look for mites.
I hope all goes well, please reply back if you have additional questions or concerns
