He is due for a haircut and his hair is getting pretty long... He's scheduled at the groomer's in a week. Today I decided to trim around his eyes because he probably couldn't see very well, and when I did I noticed there was a lot more "eye crusty" than usual. I grabbed a paper towel and when I pulled the crusty off, a big chunk of scab came off!! He has a huge bald spot right at the corner of one eye! I called the vet and they said to clean it and leave it alone until I can get him in. I have to work this afternoon but I have an appointment for him tomorrow morning.
I feel sooooo bad for not noticing sooner, I hope it's nothing serious!! The other eye is fine but if it's an infection who knows what could have happened had I not noticed it now.. I cleaned his ears about a week and a half ago and I always pick off the eye crusties when I do that so I know it hasn't been longer than that since it happened... I'm guessing it was probably something he picked up when we went out to the farm last weekend. He ran around for hours and could have easily picked something up... but jeez, I just feel so bad!!!
He's not acting any different and his actual eye looks fine.. It's not gooey or cloudy but I have posted a pic for you to see. If you've ever seen something similar let me know cause I'm curious to know what it is and if it's serious I'll take him to the 24 hour vet clinic when I'm done work.
