Is the pink on the lid around the eye or on the eye itself?

Around the eye .I took a picture of her and it's in my album .

It looks like she might have some irritation in the right eye--the pink around it along the inside toward the snout is the nictitating membrane (third eyelid). When that gets irritated or if the eye is injured, the membrane pulls up onto the eye. If she's had it like that for a while, it's not a bad idea to have it looked at by a vet to find the cause.

She's a beautiful girl, by the way. :lovestruck: Welcome to the board!

Could shampoo do this.... I gave her a bath! But i will take her to the vets shes go back in for her 3rd set of shots soon.. I have been giving her a bath once a week!
I have been using puppy shampoo and vet conditioner

It might if you got it in her eyes, but there are a lot of other causes. When is her appointment? If the redness/irritation continues, she should probably be seen this week for the eye problem.

Is there a particular reason you bathe her so often? Most dogs don't need to be shampooed that frequently and giving her many baths might result in dry skin.

You're gonna lose that fight for the bed. The dog(s) always win(s) [I]that [/I]one! :p

Remember the camera when you get her in the pool, pls! :D

Good news about her weight and eye.

As for the bathing, many of us try to avoid bathing at all. Our dogs. :) No baths. My Lab only gets one if he rolls in something stinky just before we have to go somewhere. I do hose him off with just water but no shampoo unless I have to.

SCUBADIVER August 24th, 2011 03:52 PM
