    DefaultEye Swelling

    Hello all,
    I have been a lurker for a little while but I had something come up with my lab that prompted me to join.

    Zeus is a four year old yellow male who has had some food allergies as well as seasonal allergies to some grasses and/or weeds. Zeus spent the weekend in Northern Wisconsin. They came home last night and the first thing that I noticed were Zeus' eyes. The second was a deer tick between his groin and back leg. It will be a long summer.

    Back to the eyes. I have never seen anything like it and I have been searching google. The inside corners of both eyes are inflamed. It almost appears as though he has a growth on each corner. It is not cherry eye as it is definitely the skin that is affected and not the third eyelid.

    I am thinking that it is some sort of allergy to something that he came in contact with. I flushed his eyes last night and they look quite a bit better this morning but they are still a bit inflamed.

    We have a vet appointment later this afternoon. I was just curious if anybody else had experienced something like this with their lab.

    If there is any yellow discharge from the eye it could be conjunctivitis.

    Or an allergic reaction to something.

    Flushing was good to do. I use warm sea salt water - had great healing properties.

    What did the vet say?
