My dog just turned 13 about a month ago (big Golden Retriever, weighs about 90 pounds), and his right eye is kind of hanging low. The only times we see it this low is whenever he is in a very deep sleep or has been given tranquilizer pills to calm him down during a thunderstorm. But this is now consistent. I’ve read up on dog eyelid diseases/problems, and I could probably relate this one best to ectropion, except I’m doubting this to be right considering it’s an inheritable disease, and considering it’s inheritable, you’d think it would first show up a long time ago. What is it, and what can I do about this? Is this common to see in older age retrievers? Please do not suggest surgery, as he’s far too old to handle surgery now.
In regard to cagney’s response, I only mention the tranquilizer to give you an idea of what it looks like. The last time he had a pill was at least two years ago. We’ve made sure not to give those to him anymore considering his age.
