    Default no energy

    ok, im puzzled at this one.. have a friend that has dog with a red eye that looks very much like a cherry eye but what has me puzzled is the dog is eating and going potty fine but then sleeps. has no energy.. i asked her to maybe take her temperture but shes not got back with me yet on that.. my question is does cherry eye make them have no energy.. i know my odie had it and i know it bothered him but never noticed him not having any energy.. she says her dog is not her self at all and its eye does look bad.. maybe scratched or something.. im not around the dog just pictures but i still dont understand why its just laying around sleeping.. she says its breathing sounds normal and eating is good.. shes taking it in morning but wonder if anyone else has any ideas about her..

    Hi, I agree with Christine, Cherry Eye would not cause the dog to be Lethargic or Sleepy. Cherry Eye can cause eye dryness or irritation, but not usually infection. If the dog has an infection, fever, or virus, then it could possibly cause these symptoms. Since she is going to the vet tomorrow, he will check her over and maybe can do a blood test to rule out any infection, or a stool sample. I hope it's nothing serious and her dog is okay. What breed is the dog? Are there any other symptoms, like eye discharge, pain or fever? Is it an EB?

    Hi, the picture isn't 100% clear, so I can't tell for sure if it's Cherry Eye or not, but I don't think so. Cherry eye usually is in one corner of the eye, and looks like a ball or mass in the corner of the eye duct on one side of the eye. Your picture looks like the whole eye is red and irritated. You also mentioned that she has some greenish eye gunk in the eye. Cherry eye is not an infection so there isn't any eye discharge with it, and more often than not the Cherry eye will cause eye dryness that sometimes requires moisturizing eye drops. The eye in the picture looks more like it has an infection, maybe like Pink Eye? Or some other bacterial infection. I would take a visit to the vet and have the eye checked for any infections, so the proper eye drops or medication can be prescribed, and the eye can clear up. Also the vet can check to see if there is any scratches, or injuries to the eye itself, or check for Entroprian, which is caused by an eyelash or eyelashes growing inward to the eye, and this causes eye irritation and sometimes scratches, and has to be treated by a vet, and sometimes requires surgery.

    well, she took her to vet and she told me vet said what she had was like a cold, gave antibiotics, eye cream and antiflamatory medicine.. which is what i orginally told her i thought upper respiratory infection because of the green gunk that she had but then next day it turned red like that i wasnt sure because i haven't seen it do that before.. and it was only in one eye.. well, anyhow.. im glad she got her to vet and she has a quick recovery... even the dogs that aren't mine worry me.. hate to see any dog suffer
