Here is a useful site that helps with descriptions etc.

The pet centre

Thank you for this link.
I don't understand why we cannot get it to clear up either. He is also on allergy meds since it does seem to be "itchy" and he has other symptoms of allergies too.
But the eye is still a mess and this has been going on since January when he did have an ulcer from scratching it - that was cleared up finally after many months but now he has this cloudiness and a nasty looking slightly reddish spot in the middle of it and he still paws at it frequently. When I clean his eyes he grits his teeth when I do that one:{
I hate to change vets because she is a really good vet and she works well with him unlike the ones we had before her only last year that were so nasty to him and to me also since they seemed to blame me for his attitude.
He is a Chow Chow and hard to deal with as he likes only us. She understands him or at least tries to as does the lady who grooms him on rare occasion. Chow Chows need people who respect and understand them.
BUT he surely needs this eye better.

I don`t know what your financial situation but I paid for a specialist eye vet to look at Candy.

The total cost for consult, eye pressure test, ultrasound, sedation and finally the tablets to cure it was 200.

I found that to be quite reasonable when you consider what I have paid to my own vet in the last few weeks. Had I seen this man earlier the cost would have been reduced drastically.

yes have been considering that - our financial situation is not good right now as we just paid for Boo's second knee surgery - at the cost of over $2000.00 each - plus a bunch of household disasters needing repair and a big reduction in Hubby's paycheck since his place of employment was sold.
But yes, if I had done that at the start it might have saved us all the money we have already spent on this mess. And saved poor Bear all the discomfort. The only one I can find is many miles away though - maybe Hubby can get a day off so we can go.
