My 8 Y.O. black Lab has developed a lump the size of your thumb between his eyes over the last 10 days or so. He has been having a bad infection in his eyes for which he is on cipro and clavimox. He has been seen by 4 vets over the last month. the lump developed two weeks before and apparently burst which caused massive drainage of pus with blood out of his left eye. His right eye is no longer draining. He was diagnosed with nasal mites for which he is on a course of ivermectin. Perhaps unconnected but when the second dose of ivermectin was due the lump started coming back. One day after the second ivermectin dose there was again blood in the eye discharge. Xrays do not show a tumor. Any thoughts?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?Customer: By eye discharge I meen over the last month at least two cups of green discharge from his eyeJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: The dogs name is***** is eating and functioning well.
