Is your pet giving you a loving wink or is there something going on with their eyes? Eye issues can escalate very quickly!
Eye injuries or problems should be seen by a vet immediately at the time they are noticed, changes to the eye and it's associated structures can occur quickly after an accident, even over a few hours.
- If one eye is affected, it is often due to an injury
- If both eyes are effected it could be due to an infection or chemical burn to the eyes
- Redness, swelling, increased tear production, squinting, closing of the eye/s, cloudiness or blueness of the eyeball, discharge, change in the size of the eyeball, uneven pupil size, a membrane (third eyelid) across the eye, pawing or rubbing the eye are all signs of an eye problem.
