Inflamed Right Eye (URGENT PLS HELP) Can't Post

Unsure Hi.. i'm relatively new here...

i have a mixed Terrier (Krystal)... she's 1 plus (going to be 2 this coming Jan)

Last night when i came home from work, she was fine. This morning her right eye is inflamed. The white of the eye just under the iris is red and it's swollen.. partially potruding out. She doesn't seem to be in pain.. she's still normal playful and loving. I am so worried now.. i couldn't get time off work to bring her to the vet. I can only do so later this evening.

anyone experienced this before? Anyone know of any vets around the Old Klang Road area that is opened after 8pm?Unsure



pls help

yours truly

Hi Cyrene. It could be insect bite. Let the vet have a look. At least she's not bothered about it and is her usual self. Shows that her vision is not affected. Maybe you can do some self testing to see if her eyes responce to movements. Do keep us updated on her condition. cheers

Hi Cyrene,

What you described sounds like an exposed tear gland. You have to see the vet about this. If it is really an exposed tear gland, then there are 2 options. One is to have a minor surgery to put back the gland. Second is to cut it off. Normally the vet would try to save the gland as if it is removed, the eye would eventually go blind due to cataracts (no more tears to lubricate the cornea). This info was related to me by anothe forum member who's Shih Tsu was diagnosed with this problem.

Hope this info helps.

If it is like what Arthur has mentioned, then it is the Cherry Eye Syndrome(Prolapsed Gland of the Third Eyelid). To correct it surgical replacement of the gland is necessary.

I have checked with my VET on behalf of our member's Shih Tzu that has this problem. The cost of operation does not normally exceed RM 250

Cheers

  1. Beagle
  2. Bloodhound
  3. Boston Terrier

Cool Thanks everyone for the support and also suggestions. I rushed home yesterday (thank goodness the traffic was smooth) and brought Krystal to the nearest available vet. By the time i got home, the swelling went down but there were discoloration on the whites under the iris.

The vet said that it's most probably an infection caused by foreign particles in the eye... (the eye was also tear-ing). Krystal was administered with an eye ointment and two jabs. One for antibiotic and another for her skin iritation.

I'm so proud of her. While the jab was being administered, the vet said that it may hurt. However, Krystal just sat quietly and didn't make a peep. Smile

This morning i gave her her medication (2 pills) and also the eye ointment. We will have to monitor for about a week more to see if the discoloration continues and also if the tear-ing stops.Sly



thanks again for all the concern and support Cool
