Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and would be glad to help!We can see this finding for several causes.We can see this from a common upper respiratory infection.We can also see this as a result of a conjunctivitis, corneal trauma, or even bacteria eye infection.You can try to wipe the eye with sterile saline solution (similar to contact lens solution) with a cotton ball or soft cloth. Ideally, it would be good to see your vet to see if antibiotics are needed. Good luck!____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Please click the "GREEN ACCEPT" button if the information I have provided has been of help so I receive credit for helping you.
