Dog Eye Inflammation
My dog has inflammation in one eye. The white of his eye in the inside corner is inflamed and red. He normally has reddish whites in both eyes but they are usually not inflamed.
His a 3 year old mixed breed. We know he is Shepard and Pitbull not sure what breed his father is.
His eye does not seem to bother him at all. No rubbing, no change in his behavior, he's not avoiding light. You can touch all around it and he doesn't pull away. It is tearing but not more then normal and it's clear.
From looking on your site and a couple others we believe it was just dog pink eye
. We bought some over the counter pink eye eye drops and have been putting them in once a day. It doesn't seem to be improving.
This has been going on for about a week now. The last two days he seems to have an odd-colored area in the colored part of the eye. Doesn't seem to be effecting his vision either.
We are huge believers in vets and doctors but like to try the natural solution first.
Any suggestions? Or is it time to take him to the vet?
