• My dogs eyes are red. Just noticed after getting her groomed. Lifted her eye and above eyeball where it should be white, it’s bright red on both eyes. Her activity is normal, high energy and doesn’t seem to be in pain. Should I see a vet?

    Hi Rachel, if the eye is still red I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The redness that you are describing can be causes by a few different things including eye irritation, allergies, an eye injury, infection, a corneal ulcer, or even something more severe like glaucoma. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of her symptoms after they have examined her. They may recommend some specialized eye tests to help diagnose or rule our certain causes. The treatment that she needs will depend on the underlying cause and severity of the symptoms.
