Bleeding Eye

Recommended Posts

David Frank

Any idea what may have caused this? Both eyes were bleeding like this when he came out of a slough. This is the first time I have seen it.

The cattails or the saw grass got him. It happens to our dogs when we go to ND for late pheasant season and hunt the cattails. Flush his eyes to keep the swelling down and lessen the irritation. At least his eye ducts weren't full of catttail fuzz. Labs are tough and loyal dogs!!

There is no doubt about his loyalty. He never slowed a step. Didn't even notice the bleeding until he came out of the slough bottom at the end of the walk. Didn't seem to bother him even a little bit.

A vet told me yesterday that she has treated 3 labs in the last week. she said that the drive in labs are so dang hig that they will run through a brick wall for you. she treated them with drops but said that it will heal on it's own to.

Thank you for the responses. We have been rinsing his eyes as suggested. They were forming a fair amount of puss, but the rinsing seems to be taking care of it.

My buddies dog is in the same boat. Doesn't quite have the bleeding like yours does but his eyes look like they hurt like h*ll. The vet told him as long as he isn't whining or trying to rub them a lot it should be ok. Just needs to get the skin around the eyes to toughen up a little. It still looks like it would be painful though. That is one thing you can't deny about labs, they will do anything to get the birds up for you.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
