Customer reply replied 8 years ago
not exactly sure, but the white of the eye is tinged red
Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago

If the white portion is red there could be damage to the ball of the eye, this can be dangerous depending on the extent of the injury. The eye needs to be seen by a veterinarian and stained to evaluate for punctures or scratches. If you have access to ER vet it would be a great idea to have him evaluated tonight, if not, follow up first thing in the morning with your veterinarian.

 

If you have additional questions i will be glad to answer them.
