Oh Dr Gary, thank you so much. I have always been paranoid about my dogs healths (i have 3 shelties). The Vet seemed to be in a quandry too, and I didnt even know about an opthmalolgist existed for animals. Never even occurred to me. My worst fear is that he could be in pain and I didnt even know it. I will contact my vet immediately tomorrow and see who she recommends we could take him too. I have been so upset about this I had nighmares about him losing his eye and being in pain. Can I give him something for the irritation - like baby asperin or tramadol (I have some for my dogs) until I can get into the vet tomorrow?
