Customer Question
Cyst on eyelid or...

Cyst on eyelid or swollen eyelid of my dog---seven year old female Maltese. It started out like a style a few weeks ago.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

I mean a stye Madison

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

She had always had a problem with tear staining. I haven't had the money to get her groomed in a couple months. I hadn't cut the hair on her face. I don't know if this is all related. Dog seems to have no discomfort.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is your dog bleeding a lot?

No not bleeding at all. Site has scbbed over, but was ulcerated a couple days ago

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Madison has a stye on the eyelid. A stye is an infection of the eyelid and requires eye drop antibiotics. There is also a similar appearing mass that occurs on the eyelid called a hordoleum. These are not infections and so they do not appear inflamed at all. Can you determine if this is appears inflamed or infected? If you are not sure, you can attach a picture by clicking on the paperclip icon on the toolbar.

The picture is a little blurry on my end, but I can appreciate the tear staining you were referring to. I think I am seeing a mass that extends on the entire margin of the upper eyelid. Is that correct?
