Hi Everybody!
Mickey has a red eye,Well its around of the outside of his right eye and it looks like if he has been scratching it. Do you think it could be an allergy to something?....Poor little thing.

Thanks!!

Is there any chance you can get a picture? Or be more specific? Is it all the way around his eye, the fleshy part inside his eyelids that's red, or outside of his eye? Is he winking or squinting at all? Any discharge from his eye?

Sounds like you might need a quick trip to the vet. If he's squinting, that indicates he's having pain. It's hard to say what it might be, maybe some conjunctivitis that could be itchy, making him rub and scratch at his eye? The vet could give you some antibiotic eye drops that would clear that up within a couple of days if that's the problem. If it is conjunctivitis, the eyeball will look totally normal, just the lids around the eye are inflamed, and most often there is discharge from the eye.

Did he just start squinting today? If he's still squinting tomorrow, I'd take him in...if it's not better by then, it's probably not going to go away on it's own. Vibes for Mickey!

Sorry to hear about Mickey. Hope he feels better soon.

Sophie had some redness around her eyes a while back. When I looked at her inner eyelid it was red too. She had a slight URI and the vet gave me some eye ointment and she was on antibiotics too.
