Q. My dog has a blister in the corner of his right eye. Is there anything I can do at home until I can get him to his vet on Monday

Answered By
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.

A. I can't imagine what would have caused a blister in this area, and he seems too young to have a growth or mass. As long as it's not rubbing the eye, causing excessive tearing, redness, or squinting, you should be able to wait until Monday. If the eye itself does not look normal - and you're noting any of the above - I'd seek emergency treatment this weekend.

If you'd like to open a consult with me you can post a picture there and hopefully I can tell you more.
