a few days ago we took our 3 yr old pit lab mix to the vet for a bloodshot and oozing eye. the vet suggested it could be glaucoma and prescribed us with drops given QID and the pills to be given TID. yesterday was the first full day of meds. this morning we woke up and his eye was perfectly fine. we gave hiim his first dose of pills and drops. after the drops his third eyelid started to swell again and was red. is there a posibility that its not glaucoma? or is this just an effect of the drops? his IOP readings were anywhere from 30-60 in his right eye. is there anything else that can cause a high pressure reading besides glaucoma?
