    Hello everyone, am new here. I have a ten year old Chihuahua who suddenly got a small bump on her eyelid, which rapidly puffed up and spread to both eyes. They were a mess. She was on one course of antibiotics and Prednisone which did not clear it up. A second course did clear it completely and she was fine for a few weeks. Now it is back. Maggie is going to the vet on Monday, but I have been told that there are many reasons for this and it will be difficult to diagnose. I am desperately hoping that she will not be on Prednisone for the rest of her life, it is hard on the body and she has elevated liver enzymes as it is. I would appreciate knowing if anyone has had this problem with their dog, and maybe what to look forward to in the treatment.

    Hi I know this is an old post but my 18 week old puppy has exactly what you have just described here. He started with a small lump and now his eyes are a complete mess and he’s on all sorts of medication. Did your chihuahua ever recover?
