I have a black Labrador who is about four and a half years old, and about six months ago I noticed that he had a light brown spot on the white part of one of his eyes, right above the pupil. The spot is about half the size of a standard pencil eraser. I did ask the vet about it during my dog's yearly check-up but the vet only said that the spot did not look serious and just to watch it for changes.
I recently found this website and since so many of you seem very knowledgeable about Labs and dogs in general, I figured that I would ask here as well. I am just curious if any other owners have experienced eye spots of this sort before and have a better idea of what it could be. I hope that it is just a freckle or harmful discoloration. I would really appreciate any additional information.
Thank you in advance for your help! Simba thanks you too!
Hello and welcome,
I would just do what your vet said. Sadie has brown eyes and some of the color extends into the white part.
That sounds like my friend's golden retriever. Their vet told them the same thing - it looks harmless, and just watch it. It's been there (and not changed) for years, so hopefully it's just extra pigmentation.
