Hi, our pup (4 months old) developed a spot near her right eye. Almost looks like a scar but honestly don’t know. Made a call to the vet but don’t expect a call back until Friday. Any ideas what this could be? Thanks!

Scraped her eye on something. I wouldn't worry about it over the holiday weekend, frankly.

My boy recently had eye surgery for Trichiasis (eye lashes growing inwards and scratching the cornea.) When we went in for a follow-up a few weeks later he had developed a similar spot. It was not in a part of the eye that had been operated upon. The doctor said it was a fat deposit not unusual for a adolescent dog and would likely disappear in a few months. If it doesn't he recommended a follow-up appointment to remove it. (If I remember correctly, he said the fat originated from a hair follicle.)

This isn't to say that it's what's up with your pup. However, my ophthalmologist wasn't too concerned when he saw something similar on Fido.
