Q. My 3 week old chi pup jumped off the toilet, 1 of its eyes whites is now red with discharge.Other than that is fine.Should I be worried about the eye?

Answered By

A. Yes, you should be worried about the eye. And you should also not let a 3 week old puppy on a high place like a toilet. She should still be in a box with her mother, and not allowed to roam about unsupervised.

The eye could have been damaged in the fall, or there could be trauma to the skull. She needs to be examined by a vet in order to determine the extent of the damage.
