Eye condition on westie


We have a 1 year old Westie, named Henri. His health is great, but we have been puzzled by a strange thing he does with his eyes.

Sometimes he'll squint to the point you can hardly see his eyes. (for about 20 minutes, it's almos as if he doesn't like the brightness, but that doesn't see to be it)

We asked our 2 local vets, but they could not decifer why he's doing it.

The vets asked us whether Henri's eyes oozed, but they doesn't, whether the eyes get all swollen, but they don't, and whether they get red or seem irritated. But they really don't.

So there was not much they could guess.

Sometimes, Henri will go through periods without doing it, but he just did it tonight. We have discounted perfumes, onions, hot pepper or anything like that as the cause. We are baffled.

We worry that he might have something not diagnosed that could be corrected.
He first did this about 5 months ago, on and off.

Any help as he really looks pitiful and helpless when he does that.
