We have an Aussie sheppard. The of one side of her eyeball

Customer Question

We have an Aussie sheppard. The white of one side of her eyeball is swollen and a little red. The iris is not swollen. It seems to itch but not hurt. She has had eye allergies in the past.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Bootsie. She's 5 years old and has never has flea medication. We just noticed it. It wasn't swollen earlier.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about She 's?
Customer: Her name is Bootsie.

1) Can you post a clear photo of the eye itself?
2) Is she rubbing?
3) Squinting?
4) Is she on any meds?

We took her to the vet. I won't be using this service.
