Hey guys, Oisín's Mummy here.
Today while cleaning some eye gunk off Oisín I noticed brown spots on both of his eyes. I had never noticed before and I could only see them because the sun was shining straight onto his face.
They are dark brown in colour very similar to his actual eye colour so are hard to notice. They also seem to be on the outside layer of his eye *if that makes sense* and not part of his iris.
They don't seem to be hindering his vision as he can still spot if I have a treat in my hand and can follow it as I move it around.
I know pugs can have a lot of trouble with their vision so I'm pretty freaked out as to what it could be, but I don't want to put him through the stress of bringing him to the vet if it turns out to be nothing or something that will clear up on its own (he really hates the vet and gets very stressed out, last time he got sick in the waiting room)
I tried googling it but cant find anything, just pictures of dogs with a brown patch over one eye...not what I am looking for. So I have come to you guys,do you have any idea what it could be? If you do know anything could you tell me what would need to be done to cure it? Would it be possible eye surgery? Also would his pet insurance cover it (they're really sneaky over here and its almost not worth the money)?
*This is a really crappy photo of his eyes but was the only one that kinda showed up the brown dots*
I will most likely end up dragging Oisín to the vet anyways but if anyone has experienced something very similar to it, that would really help :)
