Eye Ulcer?

My hound has all of a sudden developed what looks like a red bulge right where the dark of the iris meets the inner corner in one of his eyes - he's not rubbing or blinking unusually...I have an appointment to see the vet at lunch time but I wondered if anyone had a similar experience? I'm assuming for now that it's not pannus although anything's possible, I guess

thanks in advance

Is it on the sclera (white part) or is it part of the nictitating membrane (third eyelid)?

 

When my pup had a corneal ulcer it was invisible to the naked eye. Vet had to put special drops in his eye and then look under a blacklight. There was no redness but there was a little ocular discharge and blinking.

it's on the sclera, creeping into the edge of the iris - vet thing=ks it's an ulcer but she's not sure if it's superficial or manifesting internal, so he's got fucithalmic ointment for 2 days and then a recheck -

Sounds like what my Thunder had over the Summer except he had it in both eyes. Same process you are going through and after the two day check, switch to a different eye drop. He was a little squinty for a few days so it earned him the name "Stevie Thunder" :lol . My vet said he thinks it could happen from something as simple as a blade a grass and Thunder is known to rub his face in the yard. I hope you continue to see improvement. Keep us updated.

Smiley once had an ulcer on his eye, but it was nothing visible to the naked eye. Our vet discovered it using his goggle doo-dads and prescribed eye drops. Smiley's symptoms included tearing and moisture around his eye and he was pawing at it.

It's pannus, or the next thing to it...my vet looked at it this morning and said although it was better, she wasn't convinced we were safe to continue with just the fucithalmic ointment as a treatment. She called the opthalmic referral clinic a few miles away, got me a spot in line there, took some blood herself as a hurry-up, and an hour later I was being taught by the clinic's specialist how to use a flashlight on the eyeball to see what he was seeing - which he was not happy about. I have a 5-time a day regimen to follow (I work). another appointment next Tuesday, the specialist's home # as well as his cell #...and I'm almost four hundred bucks lighter...does that sound like a nice enough day?
