Hi...

Hi my 6 yearly bulldog's left eye is somewhat lazy and closed.....seems to be in no pain and vision seems ok. he also seems a bit more lethargic than usual

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the bulldog. What is the bulldog's name and age?

Fred age 6

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fred?

I'm so sorry to hear that Fred's eye is bothering him.

Is there any discharge or redness of the eye?

Is he squinting, pawing or rubbing his face?

Are you able to send a photo?

no discharge nor redness... not pawing it either.
just a dramatic squint as he looks at me / or around..
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Ok, thank you for that information.

Bulldogs, due to the shape of their face and positioning of their eyes are prone to corneal abrasions (scratches to the surface of their eyes). This is the most common cause of sudden squinting in just one eye. It can only be diagnosed by a stain of the eye by your veterinarian. If the squinting persists for more than 12-24hrs, I recommend having Fred seen by a veterinarian to have his eyes assess. If corneal ulcers are left untreated, they can become quite deep, painful and difficult to treat.
