Eye Issues

I am just curious if anyone Havanese has ever had a little "bump" or "pimple" looking thing on the eyelid?Could this be from getting poked by a toy?plant?wrestling with another dog?allergy?bug bite?Any ideas?

Quincy had one that just showed up overnight(literally)and I hadn't been putting up his topknot for a few days...I put it up,we went for a walk that evening,next morning......pimple-looking thing on his lower eye rim.My first thought was to run him immediately to the vet,but then a friend said,just hold off a few days.Now it is day 2 and it seems to be going away.

Thanks

Bug bite would be my first guess if it is going away. If it get reds and swollen, a trip to the vet may be in order. Poor little Quincy.

Maybe it's sorta like a human "stye" (not sure I spelled that right?) or an ingrown hair! Glad he's better!

I wondered about a sty(spelling) too,like in a human's eye.It did remind me of that the most.I used to get a sty in my eye about once every year or two when I was growing up.Dad used to say it's because I peed outside!I wish this thing on Quincy's eye was completely gone,:sad:but it isn't.I figure in a few more days if it isn't completely gone,I would take him to the vet.It is about 1/2 the size it was now.

Awwww, poor little Quincy Keep an eye on it Julie and it just may clear up on its own. I think allergy season is now upon us and maybe something got in there that irritated it. Havs are so low to the ground, you never know. Give it a couple more days, clean the area, and see how it goes. Keep us posted. I hope he gets better real soon

You know, I just noticed a little white spot on Cash's upper eyelid---it doesn't look raised, just a different color than his black rims- I just thought it was some sort of pigmentation changing. What do you think?

Helen keep us posted on Oreo

Yep, Julie, it's pretty bad..... lol

I'd be wondering too, about Quincy's eye. You never know! It's gone down, so who knows? Does it seem to bother him?

Julie and all, my apologies, I am still waiting on a new camera. My hubby has been saving up to buy a new one. Looks like we may be getting one in a few days. The new pic of Oreo is courtesy of my Uncle. I don't think I will make the May challenge, but I do believe I can meet the next ones

Missy, I will keep you all posted on Oreo's progress
