Can Dogs Get Styes in Their Eyes?
Madeleine's left eye is red, and there is a reddish bump on the lower, center part of her eye. No discharge, no apparent pain. This all has popped up in the last 12 hours or so.
In a human, I would guess that this could be a stye.
Is it possible for dogs to get styes as well? If that's the case, could this possibly p$#@! (in humans, they usually do), or are we off to the vet again?

Hi MadelineMom...is the raised bump on the margin of the eyelid? Or is it on the eyeball itself?
If it is on the eyelid, it is likely a chalazion, or plugged oil duct. This would be somewhat similar to a sty in people.
I would definitely advise a trip to the DVM as these types of growths can irritate the cornea of the eye and even create an ulcer.
Good luck...keep us posted!
Hi, Tom and thank you for responding.
The bump is on the eyelid, not the eyeball (sorry that I did not make that clear).
This morning, both the redness of her eye and bump have subsided; I will watch it closely though.
