We call her Girl and she is about 3. Rescued her ...

She has been suffering with an ear infection or mites. She also has a very swollen spot on the side of the throat. Several weeks ago her neck was very swollen, We thought she had been bitten by a snake.

Hi this is Dr. Hill. Bleeding into the eye can be a sign of high blood pressure or a bleeding disorder (blood is not clotting normally). I would take Girl to a local emergency clinic so that they can check her clotting. They can also test her blood pressure and her eyes. When caught early, many of these issues are treatable. She is a young dog. Rat poisons will cause abnormal bleeding. Is there any possible exposure to a rodenticide? If you don't know of a local emergency clinic, please post your city and state and I will help find one for you. Please ask any follow up questions.
