Eye Stain

I do not feel this has any health issue or symptoms on my dog. If you look closely at the photo, she has a stain on the white of one eye. Has anyone ever seen this? Dr Lee is this a concern? She has had it all her life.

I assume that you are referring to the brown discoloration on the white portion of the right eye. If I understand properly, it has been there all her life, has not changed and does not bother her.

This appears to be pigment (melanin) of the sclera (white portion of the eye) which is common and normal in many dogs.

btw - that is an amazing cute dog!!!!
