My dog has a bad eye infection. Before it got this bad she had a small tumor on her eye which I think is still there. She is discharging a little blood from it, but does not seem to be in any pain.


What should I do to cure this problem?

Thanks, John

Hi John,
From the photos you took of her, it looks like she has scraped or scratched her upper left eyelid. Her eye looks ok. I could not see any tumor.

From the loss of hair around her entire eye, I would suggest this course of action:

1. Protect her eyelid by making her wear an E-Collar or Doggles, (dog goggles-http://shop.doggles.com/)

2. Take her to a holistic veterinarian, ask if they can do a skin scraping. I am concerned that she may have Demodectic mange.http://www.organic-pet-digest.com/how-to-treat-dog-mange.html#Demodectic

3. A holistic veterinarian can do an entire physical exam, perhaps a blood panel, to rule out any other internal problems she may have. Click here to find a holistic veterinarian in your area. Another resource for vets knowledgeable in homeopathy is AVH.org.

4. Once a diagnosis is made, I would be able to make further suggestions, if needed to help her heal.
