Default Interesting eyeball

When we got our poodle I noticed that his right eye shows a little more of the white of his eye. I didn't think much about it. It is not inflamed or showing any sign of illness. We took him to the vet for his well puppy visit. I forgot to mention it, and the vet didn't say anything either.

When I took him to the groomer, she asked me if his eye was always like that. So she noticed it. She mentioned "red eye" except his eye is not red. Those where her words.

Is this something I should be worried about? Anyone else have a dog like this?

I do see it. I would have him checked by the vet, maybe he can see something pressing behind the ocular nerve with that little light they use. If he checks him out and there is no problem, great, you can rest easy. But if there IS something, it's probably minor in nature at this time and easier to fix.

hilshaven: I totally agree with Indiana. Please have your vet take a good look at your poodle's eye. There is something called red eye that can be an issue, but the best thing to do is to call the vet. You might mention you were there recently for a visit but eye health didn't come up. Good luck, I hope everything checks out okay!!

It's probably just the opening of his right eye is bigger than the opening of his left eye. It could be something more like pressure from the back of the eye, but in all likelihood it is nothing to worry about. There are ophthamology vets most places. In a city as big as Oahu, I bet you have one. I would take him back to the vet and have him check his eye just to be sure.

Default Mystery solved!

So we went in for his well pup &shots visit and I mentioned his eye... I am calling it parti eyes! His 3rd eye lid is clear/white on one side and black on the other! It is part of his unique coloring. Love my Parti pup!

I was going to say it was the 3rd eye lid. My cream has them and they look a bit red. I had the vet look at them and it was nothing to be worried about.

It didn't even occur to me that it could be his third eyelid! They almost all have a black stripe in the edge. How funny! Another unique parti feature. Enjoy your pretty parti boy.
