    Default Puffy Eyelid --- Not Sure What's Wrong

    When Ginger opens her eyes, her left eye doesn't open as wide as the right one. It looks like her eye is irritated. Her eye is pretty red.. It's been like that past hour or so.. We thought that something got in her eye, but I looked and nothing was there...

    Any clue on what could be causing this irritation? Thanks!

    Thank you for taking her. My response would be that in most cases they only have two eyes so you need to take care of them (Wallis only has one good eye.)

    Probably something as simple as a little conjuctivitis, but you want to know for sure.

    I care! Let me know.

    Ugh, After I read that I began reliving the nightmare about Cody's swollen face Here is the link to THAT fiasco:

    If the swelling showed up all of a sudden and increasing, then a trip to the vet is neccissary. It is possible that she may have been stung by a bee or other insect while outside and is having a reaction.

    If my dogs seem to be favoring one eye-- I grab the bottle of "tears" as soon as I notice and flush the eye. This may not solve the problem, but it can't hurt. sandy

    Hello, thanks all! She's doing OK -- I almost took her to the animal urgent care (it was late at night) but then her eye seemed to get better by the minute. The puffyness was completely gone by the next morning, thank goodness. I used some human eye solution to her eye and I think it helped out a bit. Now that I'm thinking my eye was a bit puffy as well so I think we had some dust in the house.
