Black lump near dog's eye

by Brenda

Our dog has developed a black bump near one eye, which is increasing in size. I have been putting Vitamin E on it for the past few days, but so far no noticeable change. She is a 10 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

We never seem to get out of a vet's office for much under $300, and frankly, we don't have it. We are hoping you can tell us if it is necessary for this.

Thanks for your time.

My Online Vet Response for: Black lump near dog's eye
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Brenda,
The black lump near your Cavalier Spaniel's eye appears to be a benign meibomian gland cyst or adenoma.

These can grow to be much larger, and actually touch the eye, which sometimes causes irritation that results in eye discharge.

They are usually the result of over vaccination. Seeking the help of a holistic veterinarian, to not only address the 'black lump' near her eye, but to improve her overall health through the right dog food diet, homeopathic remedies for dogs, and dog dietary supplements so that the growth will 'go away' on its own would be the ideal goal for her.
