We've got a Tibetan spaniel who's had a procedure 4days ago

Hi, we've got a Tibetan spaniel who's had a procedure 4days ago to correct a cherry eye prolapse. His still wearing a cone and the swelling had reduced until this afternoon, his finished the tramadol tablet he has been prescribed (he was castrated at the same time) and he also has chloropt eye ointment which we are struggling to administer.We're worried as currently his eye has swollen to twice the size this evening plus he seems very agitated with the eye, it is constantly closed and his trying to rub or scratch it.Should we be concerned enough to visit an after hours vet hospital or attempt to keep him calm and see how things progress?We're worried that the is a chance he could loose his eye... should we be concerned of this?

Hiya, My Name is ***** ***** and my issue is to do with my

Hiya, My Name is ***** ***** and my issue is to do with my dog urinating blood.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: yes- it only happens after long walks (after he's been scenting a lot). He keeps going into the garden and attempting to urinate but can't- then when he eventually does there is blood present. It will then go away But it happens so often after long woalks- not always blood- but frequent toilet visits with no luck it must be related!! He is a 9 yr old ***** ***** cross. and he is castratedJA: OK got it.
