One of Cujo's eyes is bloodshot a very red color where its usually white... is this something I should be concerned about? Anything I can/should do?
Is he blinking and/or pawing at it? How long has it been red? Is there any discharge? Does it look dull?Mike Schoonbrood said:One of Cujo's eyes is bloodshot a very red color where its usually white... is this something I should be concerned about? Anything I can/should do?
Well, here's what I would do, then, since the signs of serious illness and injury are absent: I would see how it looks after he sleeps all night and then decide whether to give the vet a call.Mike Schoonbrood said:I don't think she did, the only way that would have been possible is if her paw hit him when I was opening the door while holding her n Cujo walking next to me...
I noticed "something" about 2 hours ago but didn't really think anything of it till 20 mins ago when I noticed the redness. It's a very solid uniford RED red, not pink, not dark red, but just very pronounced RED. He doesn't seem to have any problem with it, I haven't noticed anything unusual from him.
Good news! Clear-eyed for his BIRTHDAY!!Mike Schoonbrood said:His eye was definately caused by some kinda trauma, it was a deep red all the way around the top and side of his eyeball, the vet says if he hit his head anywhere around his eye it can bleed into his eyes like it did, so doesn't neccesarily have to be a scratch. I've been putting the cream in his eye twice a day per the vets instructions n his eye has almost completely cleared up It's withdrawn to white and pink rather than blood red. I can't imagine trying to put cream in Lÿka's eye, Cujo's such a nice calm boy when it comes to doing anything medical with him lol. Even at the dentist to take an X-Ray they gave him a mild sedative rather than putting him under like they had planned!
