My 14 month old Borzoi has a swollen inner eyelid, it's

Customer Question
My 14 month old...

My 14 month old Borzoi has a swollen inner eyelid, it's nearly closed and red. He's not in any distress but I'm just a bit worried. What should I do

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Not really, It's just closed up quite a bit. Sunday's not the best day for finding a vet
