Customer Question
His left eye in...

His left eye in the outside corner has been badly bloodshot. I noticed it about a week ago and it’s still like that. Do I need to call the vet and have him seen? What could be wrong?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?
