Catching everyone up. I am posting these these after the original date they were written. June 2, 2015 – Rocco, our boxer has a very swollen and red third eyelid. We have been to the vet three times already for this problem. The first time she thought it was an infection, or maybe something in his eye. She cleaned it out real well, did the pressure test, and the tear test. Everything came back normal, so we proceeded with the antibiodics. Did nothing.
Went back in a few weeks later. Eye was about the same. She thought that maybe it was allergies. Using allergy eye drops seemed to help the swelling a tad, and got rid of the redness synthroid tablets online. So we did that for a month or so. Eye definitely not getting any better.
Called vet again – she suggested a different antibiodic drop. She couldn’t think of anything else it could be. Well, that did nothing. Upon doing a bunch of research I found that boxers have eye problems! It can be a bunch of different things, so I decided to call the Animal Eye specialist nearby. Wish I would have done it sooner.
