    Default Right eye squinting

    I've seen aces right eye squinting off and on. Yesterday after picking him up from my dads place I noticed it more. I have him on antibiotic drops, but for allergies, not for this reason. I've seen this happen before, and I would just think it was allergy flare up. This morning he had very little eye boogers. I'll be keeping an eye out, if he doesn't get better by tomorrow I will take him in. Any other ideas?

    Take a look to see if there are any eyelashes rubbing against his eye. Would help if you had a magnifying glass to look.

    I tried doing that, seems his lashes are outward. But I will continue to check.

    He could have a lash in his eye. He might have rubbed it and caused an irritation. Just keep an eye on it, if anything worsens, call the vet.

    Went home for lunch, he's doing better. He has his eye open now and squints here and there. Much better than last night. If it were to be an ulcer, it wouldn't have gotten better right? I just googled eye squinting and freaked when I saw eye ulcer subject.

    Google is so full of sometimes. If it were an ulcer there would be redness around the skin and eyeball closet to his nose, what kind of food are you feeding him? Only reason i ask is because I saw your post on the other thread about tear stains.

    LOL This totally made me laugh, because I thought about myself. I google things, and then get freaked out thinking worst case. Anyway.. yes, an ulcer should be visible to you. If you have already checked the lashes, and you physically can't see anything in there, he could have maybe scratched his eye or something. Tyson did this once when he was sniffing around some bushes.. if you have regular plain tea bags, or green tea bag - get them nice & warm, and you can do a compress. I didn't think Tyson would let me do it, but he actually seemed to like it, I noticed it really helped with the red irritation - I just would hold it on his eye & pet him... so he stayed relaxed.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    definitely take google with a grain of salt. They will have you, or your dog dead and buried with their hypochondria!

    or it could be something serious like an eye ulcer from accidental trauma.. getting poked by shrubs. A vet visit with antibiotic drops will be necessary. Harvey had this and off to the vet. He was prescribed with 3 different drops.

    This happened to Jovi when she was about... a year old so about 6 months ago. She was squinting in her left eye and barely opened it and all I thought to myself "great, another vet bill." Because this happened right after her hip displaysia visit, and torn ligaments. But everyday it was getting better and then after about 4-5 day it was back to normal and she's been fine since! I also gave her benedryl but I have no idea if that actually helped.

    With our boy it was Distichiasis, basically wayward lashes under his lid.Thankfully it didn't give him ulcers.He has had two eye surgeries for entropian, lid folding.He may need to go back soon because he still has squinting and runny eye issues.So if yours keeps squinting even if its just off and on I'd make a vet trip.We took him to an Optimologist. Be prepared for some cost.It was almost 400 to have him sedated and lashes cut out.But healing was fast.

    Got home this evening and it was back to increased squinting. I'll give it one more day. Then if I see no improvement, I'll take him in.
