Growth on Boston Terrier's Eyelid
by Dawn M.
About a month ago we noticed a growth on our Boston terrier's right eyelid. It grew extremely fast, which has me worried. It is now very large, as you can see in the pictures.
I am worried because it is so close to the edge of his eyelid, I hope it won't split it open.
I have been treating it with a Silver Shield Gel, anti-viral herbs and Omega 3. He rubs it on the furniture, blankets, bed etc and it does bleed. Then it scabs up and he rubs it and it bleeds again. I noticed he shakes his head a lot now.
My main concerns are if it is cancerous and/or if it should be removed.
Hoss is a 5 year old, purebred Boston Terrier. He weighs 33 pounds, but the vet says he is just built big, not overweight. He is a very playful, energetic, loving, gentle boy. I feed him all organic dog food. He has only had one health issue and that is Lyme's Disease which he was diagnosed with about a year ago. He was treated with antibiotics. He gets his vaccines regularly, and now he gets a Lyme vaccine as well.
