Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So I've noticed that Khloe's blue eye must be sensitive to the sun.
She will walk/run around with it all squinty. Her other eye is a green-brown, and she has no problem with it.
In the house or in the shade she opens it with no problem.
The blue eye leaks a fluid almost daily.

Has anyone else ever had this problem or may know of what it could be?
She has a vet appointment for a check up in the next few days.

At first I thought maybe she got some dirt or something in it, but I've cleaned and looked at it and I didn't see anything.
Now I just noticed the squinting...and I feel like it really bothers her. Sad

I've been researching the common eye defects in Sibes, and now i'm nervous.

Blue eyes are more sensitive to the sun, blue eyed people squint in the sun more too. Both my girls do it. The less pigmentation makes more sun come into their eyes, or something along those lines. Smile

Zoey is the only one of mine that does it, I think it's the liver pigment around the eye, her lighter color and then of course the blue eyes

Thank you for the responses.
I figured that would be it, but I just wasn't sure.
Kato has brown eyes, and Karma has a brown and a parti eye, so this is new to me.
I just feel bad that she has to squint.

Kerian squints all the time even in doors. She has the lighter blue eyes.. She looks like she is winking at you half the time. . When I first notice it I thought it was just one of her eyes but it is both eyes. I think she sees with one eye at a time and is not using them together. But what do I know.. Her eyes have a lot of sleep or stuff in them I think she has seasonal allergies like most people in Oklahoma.

Jennifer-ooh they have doggie sunglasses? Where can I buy them? I'm not sure though that Khloe would wear them.

Linda-I thought the same about Khloe only seeing out of one eye. I even thought about her being blind in her blue eye.
