    Hi
    My bulldog and recently developed a grey blur in his left eye and lots of green discharge keeps forming ! Any ideas please as vets can’t get me in until next week

    I’m surprised they aren’t fitting him in sooner tbh

    Can’t delay where eyes are concerned.

    Maybe try pestering them a bit?

    I agree, I'd really push to get him seen sooner. Green discharge on its own is reason enough, and the 'grey blur' doesn't sound particularly good.

    Send them a photo? Then if the vet is happy to leave it untreated for another week that’s their call.

    That sounds nasty, I'd definitely push for a consult sooner. Don't hang around with eyes as they can go bad quickly.

    I'd be ringing around to find another vet that could see him sooner. If the eye is ulcerating - and the grey area sounds like it could be - he might be blind in that eye by next week.

    I agree with @Burrowzig ! Definitely get a second opinion if, even after a photo, the vet still won't fit your dog in. Best of luck!
