The problem with your dog's eye could be due to a number of problems, including injury, infection, disease and/or a tumor. For this reason, and for the sake of his sight, he should be seen by his veterinarian immediately. Your vet can diagnose the problem and advise you of options to resolve it.

Take him to the Vet. This could indicate an eye infection or something like a tumor formation. If it's just infection they will probably give you a Steroid Eye ointment but if it's a tumor or something else it may require operation.

Dogs eyes like people's sometimes swell for many reasons. An eye ointment or drops may easy the irritation in the eye until its body can naturally heal. If the swelling continues a visit to the vet is probably necessary. The vet may apply a steroid or antibiotic to help the swelling go down.

Any swelling of the conjuntiva is not normal. If a dog has swelling or any other abnormality of its eye, it should be seen by a vet.

Whenever there is swelling in the white of his eye please take the dog to the vet and give treatment because it may be a serious problem to the dog. There may not be any fluid in the eyes which could also cause swelling. By applying medicine it could be cured and have a watch for some time.
