Pink Inside of Dog's Eye, Lost Eyelashes
by Brett I.
(Broken Arrow, OK, USA)
Three days ago I noticed that the upper & inside (toward the nose side of the eye) of my dogs eye was pink and looked like his eyelashes or fur had fallen off or had been scratched off. Two days ago the same amount of pink was near the eye and it was like around the entire eye was tears. It was moist and as far as I could tell the liquid was just clear like tears.
This morning much of the area around the eye was missing hair and was pink. It doesn't look to me like the eyelid is rolling under on itself. I am hoping its something obviously not a big deal and cheap to fix but I would love an expert opinion before going to a more expensive vet visit.
The Australian Shepherd is 2.5 years old, healthy. He seems mainly unaffected by this eye problem. He is eating and drinking well, he is playing with my other dog as usual. The only thing is that he is scratching his eye with his back paw showing that it does bother him a bit.
