Red growth in left eye of dog

My 12 year female Wheaton Terrier has developed a red growth on her left eye. Our vet (VCA) has been trating it with a 5ml solution of NeoPolyDex. I don't see any improvement.

This morning I noticed her eye is exuding a white substance.

What do you recommend?

My Online Vet Response for Red Growth in Left eye of Dog
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

From your photo that you submitted, and the short history, it is difficult to make any diagnosis, other than conjunctivitis. From the photo, I can see that there is mucous in the left eye, and all I can see is the lower lid looks pink. In order to see a growth, the mucous would need to be flushed out, and the lower eyelid pulled down to expose the growth or the inner part of the lower eyelid.

Since the medicine your regular veterinarian has prescribed is not working, I would not continue to use it. Instead, use saline to continue to rinse her eye, three to four times daily. Keep her inside the house more, away from dust and wind.

The best advice I can give would be to find a holistic veterinarian in your area to check your dog and do a thorough work up, including diet and vaccination history (do not vaccinate her any more, if there is a possibility of a growth or tumor in the eye.)
