Customer Question
My dog was outside...

My dog was outside going to the bathroom. He frantically came to the front door scratching wanting to get in and was afraid. When he came into the -house his eyes were closed. And they've stayed squinted. It's been about an hour and he still hasn't opened his eyes. I've washed his face and pause several times and gave him a bed Benadryl.

Veterinarian's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

One month ago.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. He's been given healthy check ups.
