Call Anicare vets in the morning. They are open Sunday at all three branches, Blanch, Glasnevin and Clntarf, at different times. Check their website for opening hours of the branches as they are different: www.anicare.ie. They just closed at 4pm in Clontarf I think so none of the branches is open again til tomorrow.

This could be cherry eye and needs to be seen by a vet.

Thanks karlin what causes this, he was fine in the car in the way home. It's only a tiny part in the corner of his eye but I will call them in the morning thank you.

I would definately advise seeking medical attention, but it sounds to me as though some sort of irritant (dust, etc.) may have gotten into his eye and caused the third eye lid to come up to protect his eye.

Please let us know!
