    Exclamation HELP**My Pug's Eye Has a Weird Red Bump On The Top Eyelid

    Hi Guys! After dinner, I noticed that my pug, Barry, started scratching his eye. I looked at it and there was a red bump on his top eyelid. I put a cone on him so he doesn't irritated it anymore. I was wondering should I wait to take him to the vet? Is there anything I can apply on his eyelid? Is this an allergic reaction to something? I've provided a picture for reference. If any of you pug owners experienced the same thing, can you help me out? :( First time Pug Owner and I'm worried. Thanks a bunch!

    Gosh, I am not an expert. I wish I could see the other eye for comparison.

    I don't think I would panic, but see how it looks tomorrow and call the vet in the morning if you are still concerned.

    Do you keep Benadryl in the house? If it is an allergic reaction and gets worse, or any other facial swelling, I would personally give the Benadryl.

    Look at this allergic reaction Co-Pilot had once, scary! https://www.pugvillage.com/forum/pug-...n-vaccine.html

    I'll keep an eye out. And yeah I have Benadyrl! Here is a comparison to the other eye. Sorry the rotation is off, my phone didn't let me rotate it.

    Personally, I would be off to the vet if one of my pugs had an eye that looked like that. It looks like an allergic reaction, but my main concern is that he may have scratched the eye itself. Eyes need quick treatment! A vet can "stain" the eye with a temporary dye that allows them to look for tiny scratches. They can provide the proper ointment or drops if anything is needed.

    Also, an important note for our Non- U.S.A. members, please remember that what you want to look for in an antihistamine is Diphenhydramine. Here in the US, Benadryl is just a brand name Diphenhydramine, but in some countries, Benadryl has other ingredients added to it! Be cautious and always check the ingredient label first!!!! The standard dosage is typically 1 mg per pound of weight.

    I didn't even think of it being a possible eye injury. Eyes are certainly nothing to mess with. I hope he's better and if not that you can get him seen ASAP.
