  • sounds like it has become infected and turned into an abcess. good thing youre taking her to the vet in the morning, if they get to it soon enuff, she should be fine and have no damage to her eye. it happens all the time, unless you let it get to far, it shouldnt be life threatening at all.

  • Yeah something similar to that has happened to us before. With our dog he got a cut (still don't know what from) and we cleaned it up thought it was healing up great then it busted open. When we took him to the vet we found out that it had gotten infected even though we thought we were doing a good job keeping it cleaned. He's all better now and the worst that came of it was a small scar. I'm sure your dog will be fine.
