Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’m happy to help with your concerns regarding Sadie.
I share your concerns.
Is it just one eye?
When did you first notice the change?
Dose she seem painful? (rubbing/pawing her face)?
Are you able to post a picture (or several) of her eyes?
Since I have not heard back from you, I want to share that I'm very concerned about Sadie's eye. I recommend that you have her seen by a veterinarian ASAP (emergency vet this evening if possible). Depending on why her one pupil is dilated and her tapetum (back of her eye) is not reflecting normally, her eye may need urgent treatment.
A few different conditions (retinal detachment, lens luxation, infection, glaucoma etc) can cause the symptoms that you are seeing, and some conditions are not reversible if not treated urgently.
I wish you both all the best.
Please let me know if you are able to get Sadie to a veterinarian.
