Ok, back from vet. Turned out it was a tiny seed pod suctioned onto the eye. At first he was worried it was a burr that was burrowing through it, but thank goodness it was more minor. He had to sedate her to get it off and there is a small ulcer. I have various ointments and he said it should heal fine. Back on Monday to make sure it's ok.
Thank you so much for the advice to go to the vet right away! He said it could have caused serious damage but we caught it very early. The vomiting is probably unrelated but funnily in a way it's a good thing she was vomitting because it caused ne to examine her closely and otherwise I may not have noticed the eye problem as soon.
She is now happily chewing a bully, and I got one for my older dog as well. It's their favorite treat but a rare one!
Good job! So glad it wasn't anything more serious! Now you know - eye problem, off to the vet! Promptly!
Glad you get bully sticks for BOTH dogs. I'd never get just one if I had more than one dog - always one for each dog!
Presumably the vet gave you the ointments? Did he show you how to apply them? It's important to be religious about applying the ointments!
I never had to use ointments or drops with Camellia since she became my dog, but I've had to use them with previous dogs and cats.
I'd be interested to learn what ointments they are, if you have time to post that information!
Hope the vomiting has cleared up!
The eye recheck is important too, and I hope you'll report back Monday after that vet visit! Sounds as though your vet is very good! It's so great to Hav good vets!
