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.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
