    skyler, 1 yr old border collie mix
    has an eye with a teeny tiny pupil. it is not responding to a flash light shinned in it. and his internal eye lid is showing.

    i have NO idea what happened.

    i called the vet, i am waiting a couple of hours to bring him in, in hopes that it gets better on its on and its no big deal

    Is there anyway he hit his eye on something?

    Traveler got hit in the eye with a tennis ball a guy at the DP kicked awhile back and his pupil immediately contracted and stayed a different size for days.

    Just an idea! I really hope it's nothing serious serious!

    his paper work says (i never saw the vet or talked to her)
    Miosis OS- anterior uveitis possible cause trauma

    also, he has yeast/bacteria infection in his ear (i noticed they were getting a little funky)

    she sent me home with atropine, pred acetate, rimadyl (for eye) and some some cream for those ears (i dont see the name listed)

    the vet called me (finally)
    after talking with her she said it was most likely Horner's Syndrom

    thank you! skyler looks and feels so much better!!!

    it looks almost normal again, which is shocking because Horner's usually takes 6-10 weeks to go away from what i read.

    maybe its not Horner's and the vet simply doesnt know.
