Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long has she had these signs?

Any discharge from this eye? What color?

Any coughing, breathing changes, appetite loss, or sneezing?

Any changes to the eyeball (ie clouding, hazing, ulcers, scratches, redness, etc)?

Can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web link here for me to have a peek.
