A thorough ophthalmic exam is essential for this eye. Prompt administration of antiinflammatory drugs are needed - both an ophthalmic and systemic antiinflammatory drug either in the form of a glucocorticosteroid such as predisolone or dexamethasone or a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) such as carprofen or meloxicam. Sasha's miotic (smaller than normal) pupil indicates a uveitis - inflammation of her iris and its attachments - and this needs to be controlled quickly lest sequelae arise that can affect Sasha's sight. If you have a veterinary ER available to you, please take advantage of it.

Would this be helpful for Sasha, Bausch n Lomb Neomycin and Polymyxin B
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

No, it contains antibiotics only. Sasha needs a potent antinflammatory drug. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

The traumatized tissue inflamed enough to bleed. The source may have been the conjunctiva or perhaps the lacrimal system - tear ducts, lacrimal sac, e.g.
