beagle puppy abnormal eye

I'm a little concerned about my beagle's eye. He is 4 months old and since we bought him from a breeder, we noticed that one of his eyes looked different from the other. It seems that his eyeball tends to bulge out a bit and the white of his eye is visible in the corner. After inspecting it closer, it seems that his iris is an irregular shape, slightly oval. Sometimes the white of his eye looks slightly red (in the corner). It does not seem to cause him discomfort, although he does get slight tear stains which are clear. He does not have these issues with his other eye.


We have taken him to the vets and mentioned this, however the vet did not seem concerned and told us he had mild conjunctivitis. She did not prescribe any medication.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could share their experiences as I'm concerned about my puppy's health, if not now but in the future. 

Thank you in advance,
Gemma

Hi

If I was you I would get a second opinion. Beagle can have eye problems that some are more serious than others but still should be checked out as soon as they appear. Also if you contact the Beagle Club some of the members maybe able to help you further.
