Bleeding Eye

6 posts in this topic

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.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
