Customer Question

My dog has red spots in his eyes... around the pupil. He's been laying down and he was shaking ALOT earlier in the morning. What could be wrong? I'm really worried, I wanted to see if anyone could answer before I call the vet =\

Does he still have the red spots?
Are you seeing any red spots along the gum or any dark spots along the abdominal area?
Any blood in the dog's urine or stool?
What kind of dog is this and how old?

Reply to Nancy Holmes's Post: Yes he still has the red spots
His gums were slightly swollen, but not anymore. and No spots there or the abdominal area.
There was blood in his urine, but not anymore
He is a Labrador and he is about 2 years old

I'd be concerned that he got into something that might be causing a blood clotting issue because of the blood seen in other areas.
This might also be a case of Pannus which is seen sometimes in labradors and is an inherited eye problem
I would plan on seeing your vet with him to make sure its not a problem with a bleeding issue and then if your vet agrees seeing a veterinary opthamologist might be a good choice.
You are very alert to notice these spots and it could be they are related to some other eye problem and its likely they are causing him pain.
Shaking often goes along with pain in a dog as well as weakness or fear.
I would get him in to see your vet today if at all possible.
Good luck with him!
