Question Dogs eyes glazed over

Hello all...

I think there's something wrong with my Lily's eyes. Lily is a 4 yr old mix (lab/german shepard) The other day I had a dixie cup 1/2 full of chocalate chips...on my night stand for when I need a fix...lol. When I went to make my bed I noticed my lamp was on...its a touch one...and my dixie cup was missing. I was the only one home and I searched everywhere...I thought maybe the cats got it but there was no sign of the cup even. I mean this cup is nowhere to be found. Yesterday I noticed Lily's eyes were funny like. She was sitting at the foot of the couch...not laying sitting...and she was squinting her eyes almost as if she was falling asleep...then today I notice they're blue like...almost a glaze over them...I washed them out with a warm cloth but its still there. Anyone know what this could be? And if she's my chip theif would the chocalate harm her? Please any answers would be helpful. Thank You

I agree and also hope you have taken her to the vet by now.......chocolate is toxic to dogs.

Good luck and keep us posted.

That's not really enough chocolate to do damage to a dog that size, especially if it was milk chocolate and not bitter chocolate. Obviously I would call the vet just to make sure.

And I wouldn't leave chocolate on the nightstand. Put it in the drawer.

We don't think it was the chocolate. I had given her a new rawhide bone and I think she had a reaction from that...she's eaten chocolate before and never gotten sick...but I took the rawhide away and hubby is checking to see where it came from and all...I'll keep you posted...

The only reason the chocolate was on my nightstand is because I am recooperating from broken ribs and it was easier for me to reach...lmao
