    Default Otis scared Momma!

    Saturday morning when Otis woke up he turned his head and looked at me and he had a large white bubble on his left eye - I thought maybe he got poked in the eye with some and I was so scared I ran upstairs (with Otis in arms) crying to my husband - Oh my god somethings wrong with Otis's eye.

    My husband looked at it, pulled up Otis's eyelid and walaa the bubble was gone!

    He thinks it was his eyeball and that his lid was stuck because his eye was dry - anyone else experience that?

    OMG it took me a good fifteen minutes to collect myself and stop crying.

    Oh my gosh I have no idea without seeing what this looks like. Sounds scary tho. It wasnt cherry eye poking out of the bottom of the lid by chance?

    I would have been scared too
    Do a search for images of cherry eye to see if it was similar. Although it being white it probably isnt that..cherry is usually pink/red I think.
    Does he have a lot of tearing down his fold? If its excessive it is likely that he will get dry eyes...you can get lubricating eyegel from the pharmacy that you can use although if he's anything like my Lucy it wil be a struggle to apply. We found it was best done with 3 pairs of hands

    I would have been the same mess you were.... never heard of it, seems similar to cherry eye, but next vet appointment I'd get it looked at

    Thank goodness your husband is a calm guy! I've not ever seen/head anything like this either, but everyone's suggestions here are good ones. Next time you take him to the vet, have your doctor spend some quality time looking in his eyes. Just to check everything.

    we all understand.. My baby had to have eye surgery for Entropian.. I took off from work and cried for days.. it does sound like cherry eye ( pretty common) and I too would have the vet look at it.

    Oh poor baby, that couldnt be cheap. I hope when Otis grows up he has a face just like Duke - love the roundness, he couldnt be prettier.
