Question about my dogs eye

I figured I'd ask here just to see if anyone knows about this since I can't take her to the vet until tomorrow. My Shih Tzu (8) is having some serious looking problems with her eye. It's red, leaking, has a small dent/scratch looking type thing in the middle of her pupil, probably the size ball point pen tip, and she won't open it all the way. Now that I think about it I heard her randomly yelping a couple of days ago but I couldn't figure out why and didn't notice any eye problems at that time. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Sounds like she scratched her cornea. I've done that and it hurts so bad!

  • Well, she's injured it. Best thing is to see what the doc says and maybe she can get some drops or something. Poor pup! I hope it's not serious.

  • Yep, I scratched mine once too, and it hurt like hell. Hope they can help, and she's feeling better soon!

  • Using clear barely warm water flush the eye if you can. You may need help.
    The reality is if it has been this long, waiting until tomorrow is probably not going to make that much difference.

  • I hope that's all it is. Poor baby :(. It looks painful.
