So my little chin Shorty (bred here) who will be a year old on Dec 24th. Just started showing some weird signs.
Ill break it down for you as far as what Ive noticed.
Thursday night I noticed his right ear was down, and right eye was squinty. I thought stroke since that usually will paralyze one side of the face.
But he was acting normal otherwise, not neurologic or anything, eating ok and swallowing ok.
Friday night, same thing.
This morning however, I noticed that the lower lid of the right eye was drooped a little but and the mucosa on the inside of the lid was swollen and red. His right ear is still down and he is now shaking his head and rubbing that eye.
Still eating ok and drinking ok. I gave him a little bit of Metacam for the pain and inflammation.
I called my vet today and they were booked so I have an apt for Tuesday since Monday we have labor day, no one is in the office.
But they said I could warm compress it.
What would you guys do? Have you ever seen this before?
Ive had chin eye infections but just with discharge, not swollen conjunctiva. And the terramycin usually took care of the others. I'm scared to put anything in his eye before the exam.
I just dont want to wait til tuesday. I dont want him to be in any discomfort.
I could use any suggestions you may have....Thanks everyone!
I took some pics of the eye and ear
In this one from a birds eye view you can see his ear is down
This one is the best to see all the problems. The right ear is down, right eye is squinted and red, and there is also a sign of dried yellow discharge that came from his right nostral.
What do I do??
