    DefaultEye Problem

    Sophie, my 4 year old lab, starting having trouble keeping her eye open; unless I have food out. It doesn't seem to be bothering her, she isn't rubbing at all and doesn't appear to be in any pain. I was thinking maybe she has an eye infection or something but was hoping someone else could give me some advice. My wife is supposed to take her to the vet tomorrow but i just dont want to worry about it until then.

    Definitely needs a vet visit. I would leave it alone until the vet sees it.

    Is it just the one eye? Is there discharge?

    Could be an infection or it could be something else. I think taking her in tomorrow is ok. Don't mess around with eye drops or anything on your own.

    it is that one eye and their is some clear discharge. It just kinda freaked me out yesterday cause i looked over at her, while eating lunch, and she was looking at me but her eye looked it usually does when she asleep.. she has been sleeping much more than normal too; although if you get her ball then she is full of energy.

    One of my Labs has (and is getting over) Horner's Syndrome. It is basically damage to one of the nerves that runs to the eye from in the dog's neck. His third eyelid would not recede and his eye appeared recessed in his head. He had a little discharge. He was incorrectly treated for an infection first and after visit #3 to the vet they diagnosed this condition. If it's Horner's that your dog has, it will correct itself over a VERY long time. If it's not - usually eye meds clear things up quickly.
