Yorkie Inflamed Eye with More Discharge Than Usual

by Alejandra
(N Miami beach, Florida)




My little Yorkie has a problem in one or both eyes, not sure. It has more discharge than usual and I think is inflamed, she cleans it often and it's kind of smaller than the other.

Dear Alejandra,
Without a photo I cannot give you any specific advice on what might be wrong. But from your description:

"problem in one or both eyes.... more discharge than usual and I think is inflamed, she cleans it often and it's kind of smaller than the other."

You should take her to a veterinarian for an exam to make sure she does not have a scratch on the cornea.

Dr Larry Bernstein is a great holistic veterinarian based in Miami Beach. I suggest you try to make an appointment for your Yorkie to have him look at her.

Hi Alejandra
Thank you for sending pictures! It looks like both eyes are involved. I suspect it may be conjunctivitis, but I am unable to determine a cause.

It might be from allergies, ingrown eyelashes, foreign body in both eyes causing a scratch on the cornea or other problem. It is hard to tell if the pupils are dilated or constricted, from these pictures.

I still think it would be best to see a veterinarian for a specific diagnosis and treatment.
