good morning,
my name is Phill and im new to this website, i have a 6 month old tricolour called fred. im looking for advice on a problem with his eyes.

for the last 2 days when he gets up in the morning there is white skin like material covering his eyes. this does clear up after a while but does come back occasionaly.
is this normal? should i be worried?

Thanks in advance for any help

Phill

It's perfectly normal. All dogs have a third membrane like eye lid called a haw. It serves to help keep the eyes moist and provides protection. It's most visible when they are sleepy or have just woken up. Nothing to be concerned about.

If its only when sleeping it is ok/normal but if it remains covering the eye when the dog is awake there is a problem from eye irrration, allergies, glaucoma, etc
