I would phone the emergency vet.Sully had an ulcerated eye caused by one of our other chis.Have you other pets that could have scratched him?

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

I'm so glad your little baby is on the mend its amazing how quickly they start to respond to a jab and some eye drops but thank god they do or we would lose our minds with worry and all have mental breakdowns or is that just me ?

Hey...what great pics! Thanks for sharing that :D We are all well thanks.

I have been clipping Scruffy as his fur is not as beautiful as your Tyke's when long:



I clip him like this:



I have always loved your Tyke...incidently, I once saw a Chi x Yorkie who I think looks very similar to your baby:









What do you think?

Keep well xxx
