i would call the emergency vet and see what they say - usually they give very good advice over the phone and you will be able to make up ur mind whether to take him in or not

Call the emergency vet there is a very good chance he could lose his eye if you wait too long. Its not long since we had a similar problem, the cream our vet gave us started working almost immediately. A lot of vets in the UK are open on a sunday nowadays ours is maybe after this you should ask around for one that is but anyway an emergency call out fee or chance losing an eye no contest really . x x

hello, thanks again

tyke is going to be fine, he has conjunctivitis..
not sure what caused it..
the vet said his eye ball was not scarchted...
so it could be a number of things! the vet did loads of tests to make sure he didnt have a eye disease...he has a temperature, and the vet gave him a injection to take away the pain! poor lillte tyke, hes got eye drops, they have already stated to work! we got the day of work i dont feel hes up to playing with the other dogs today so im going to cuddle him all day
thank u
