Pupil Dilation/Constriction surrounded by 6 month frail puppy?
I have an (almost) six month old puppy named Emmett. He come from the pound when he was 2 1/2 months old. He has lately (within the past month) developed an eye problem. The condition lasts roughly from 20 minutes to one hour.
His right pupil remains at a normal dilation while his moved out pupil constricts to about the size of a pencil eraser, maybe slightly smaller. A friend of mine said this may mean Emmett could be going blind. If anyone could bequeath me a heads up on what this could possibly mean, let me know please.
Breed: Beagle/Husky Mix
Appearance: Looks markedly much like an average Beagle, but he is a bit taller and his eyes are a pale baby blue. (I don't know whether his blue eyes may have to do with anything or not.)
"Yes blue eyes, commonly called MERLE are normally symptoms of a dog going blind, but don't give up on him, he still has 1 good eye and one of his senses will clear up for the other.
Have you taken him to the veterinarian? I have a cat, that soon started having problems with his one eye. The vet did some stain and tests but we couldn't find any apology why it had gone "bad", we put him on meds and hie eye got worse. We then took him to hold his eye removed, we now have a one-eyed Sunny Cat, his other eye is normal/healthy and he is doing awsome.
Answers: being a dog trainer i would hold to say it sounds like either a pave the way trauma or he could be growing also. babies do the same thing and so do many other animals. Best point to do is take him to the vet and talk one on one with the doc. a moment ago talking to a doc wont cost you but it might cost from 30-80 bucks for the office visit whether you dont have healthcare. That is the only way you will no what the agreement is. Going blind- you would see a grayish tint over the pupil and iris. Watch your dog the next time he has an episode. does he lay down get dizzy ? does he do it within the moring or at night more? does He fall over or stare into the distence when it is happening. If its no to adjectives of these than i would say there is a good occasion hes fine. But do get him checked out. Good luck.. Hope Emmet gets better!
