• Hello, I have noticed that my dog has started to squint his left eye sometimes. Sometimes he will squint and then it will go away. I am not sure if I should monitor him until it gets worse or bring him in since it only happens sometimes. Thank you! Michelle

    Hi Michelle, I would bring your dog to your veterinarian so they can examine his eyes. They may need to perform some testing to look for injuries, tear production, or changes in eye pressure that could be causing him to squint. If they find anything abnormal then they will be able to provide the best treatment for him. I recommend always contacting your vet sooner rather than later to prevent things from getting worse.
