Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry that sweet Holly is having these difficulties. It appears to me that she is having a neurologic issue that is causing this eye issue. I say this because if there were an eye infection, there would be a yellow discharge and this is not the case. This can happen with a stroke, a brain defect or liver disease. For now, until you can have your vet examine sweet Holly, give her aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs as long as she is still eating. This will reduce any inflammation that could be causing this defect and her distress. Your vet will want to perform a neurologic exam as well as blood work to rule out liver disease. In some case, if the brain defect is suspected, only an MRI can tell your vet what is happening and how best to treat your gal.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
Good for you...that will help....I hope Holly will be ok! I am so happy that you will have your vet check her. That will tell you how best to treat her.
