The corner of my left eye is swollen. It doesn't seem to be bothering me, but it is pink and sticking out so that it is noticeable, so instead of my gorgeous baby browns, which is all you can usually see, there is a bit of a pinkish white tissue showing in the lower corner near my nose. It doesn't seem to be bothering me, but I don't want mom to look at it either. Any thoughts out there on what it could be? I may have to go to the vet tomorrow! frown

I'd bring him to the vet , you don't want to mess with youre pets vision. It's probably nothing to worry about. But to be sure what it is , you can sleep better at night....

Definitely make an appointment to see your vet. It sounds like you have a cherry eye and that would need a surgery to fix it. Keep us updated!

Sounds like cherry eye - drops will help (or ointment). Just go to the vet.

I'm with Monty -- definitely sounds like Cherry Eye. Sometimes it requires surgery but sometimes it can be fixed with just drops or ointment. Regardless get your pup to the vet asap! smile
