    DefaultFew good thoughts for Diesel's eye please - update

    Final Update lol ! He's all good Vet thinks he may have just gotten something in his eye & flushed it out with a syringe of water (which he totally did NOT like!) & sent us on our way no charge!! Suppose I could have just done that myself, but eyes are quite precious so I wouldn't have. It's not like he was kicking up dirt, the only thing I think he may have gotten in his eye is he had been cuddling on my couch blanket it's like a shaggy wooly thing that often sheds as much as Deez does, I have gotten a few of the blanket "hairs" in my eyes before & man it hurts like a bugger! Happy he's just fine!!

    ..........

    Update -- alrighty then! Could be he just got something in his eye. Just came home & it's 90% better! He let me gently pull the lower lid down a bit and it is a darker pink than the other, but not red like it was, what seemed to be swelling has gone down, his eye is opened all the way & not as watery as before. Called the vet & they said to still bring him in just in case & if it turns out to be nothing I won't be charged a full fee... sweet! Will let y'all know! Thx for the good thoughts

    ..........

    Hoping it is just a congunctivitis thing, but it is not as goopy as that usually gets. Just a little bit more "sleep" in the left eye than the right, but there is definitely something wrong as he has a wincing look on the left, and he keeps pawing at it. What I can very easily see (and concerns me) is the lower part of the eye is swollen, like the lower eye socket area. I can see it when I stand over him & look down the left side is so puffy. I tried gently pulling the lower lid down to see if maybe he got something in there, but anytime I touch that part of his face he yanks his head away. I can see it is really red on the inner lid.

    I'm calling the vet this morning (they open at 7:30) because I know as Laura (Labby) always says "you don't mess with the eyes!" Can you throw some good thoughts his way that it is nothing? He looks so sad

    Sure hope it's nothing serious. Praying for him. Yes, I am one of "those" people. I pray for dogs. They are an important part of their family. Be sure to update us after he sees his Dr.

    I'm glad you're getting Deez in to the vet today. Hopefully it's just something irritating the eyelid or nictitating membrane (the third eyelid) and nothing going on with the eye itself. Will be following...

    Hope it's nothing serious - sending good thoughts your way. I don't think we've seen any recent photos of Diesel - think it's about time you post some!
