My dog had a burst blood vessel in his eye about 3 days ago.

This answer was rated:

My dog had a burst blood vessel in his eye about 3 days ago. He's pretty vivacious so we figured he poked himself. Now he keeps scratching his ear on that side, and he woke up twitching. When he's sitting he looks like he has Parkinson's almost... subtle shaking. My husband just took him to the ER vet... I'm so worried.

Hi there,


Were his eyes darting back and forth?

No. Also, he is 6 months not 6. His eyes looked fine, but he was whining a bit.

Dear friend,


It sounds like he is experiencing some pain in his eye or ear.Any eye issue can become painful.

He may also be nauseated or have a Vestibular disorder.


As long as his cornea is not scratched his eye should heal without meds BUT if there is any infection he will recieve antibiotics and eye drops fro the ER.


Please let me know how he is doing. I hope all will be well.


Best wishes for him,

Hi- my husband is on his way home from the vet. Nothing in his ear and they don't think the eye is related. They did bloodwork and found a positive allergic reaction to some kind of bite or sting? Weird. He eats bugs like tic tacs, so no surprise. They prescribed antibiotics. I hope he continues to get better. Thanks for your help... a lifeline when you feel kinda helpless!

Awww thepoor baby..............I am hoping the antibiotics will fix him right up.


Best wishes for him.


Give him a BIG hug and a kiss for me
