    Default white part of the eye swelled

    I am typically a "lurker" . You all are super helpful and usually any questions are answered with a quick search. But Rufus has had swelled (left) eye white for a few days now. He wont let me take a picture so I will describe symptoms the best I can. The entire white is swelled, he has drainage, and he scratches at it. 2wks ago he went to the vet bc of a yeasty nose rope. That's clear now.

    I searched cherry eye on here and on Google...to see the extent of it (if it could effect the WHOLE eye) and I don't think its what he has...my question is could this be allergies acting up (we are in the south and with the CRAZY weather allergy season has started down here) or is another vet appt due?

    and as a side note the eyelashes look like they're clear of the eyeball.

    Well can't tell without a pic, but if the eyeball is swelling, I think it needs to be checked by a vet, to be on the safe side.

    If it was me, I'd take him in just to make sure it's not an infection, scratch or
    puncture, all can cause lasting damage (and quickly) or blindness. It could be
    pressure behind the eyeball causing swelling, dangerous too. This does not
    sound like cherry eye. Not wanting to scare you but I'd take him in. GOD bless!

    A picture would help, but as you describe it, I would think he scratched the eyeball -- take him to have it checked to ensure it does not get infected.

    It was an ulcer. He has pain drops and a pill. We went today for a checkup, and again Thursday.
