One eye bloodshot

Today I noticed my 16 YO JR Terrier has one bloodshot eye.

She has no trouble walking and it doesn't seem to bother her. She has Addison's Disease (treated with Percorten V) and had mast cell cancer in 2005 ( it has not shown up again.)

Of course I'll take her to the vet if it hasn't resolved by Tuesday.
Thanks for any help you may have~!

Welcome to the board, Nancy!

We often will flush our dogs' eyes with sterile saline if they're bloodshot. It soothes the eye and may clean out debris if that's the problem. If the redness doesn't resolve in a few days, it's time to see the vet. If she starts pawing at it or the third eyelid starts rolling up in the meanwhile, she'll need to have it looked at as soon as possible.
