Do any owners here have knowledge of anything like this? Bulging eye, lid won't close? Already had an eye ultrasound, head x ray? Pain over the last week diagnosed as ear infection. Has a neurologist appointment Monday. Talking of a CT scan. The owner is very concerned and the dog is getting vet care. Seems no answers yet. Has asked if I might inquire here if any knowledge of such as this. Thanks.

No knowledge of those symptoms, but sure sounds like it is serious. If it were a person would be concerned with brain tumor.
Have missed your posts Whoa Nellie! Good to "see" you again!

Thanks for the response. She is really worried for her Crested with no answers coming yet. She sees another vet tomorrow, neuro on Monday. Maggie is a rescue dog adopted years ago. She is companion to Ringo/Rocky now, that Gail adopted from me several years ago. Hate this is happening. Rocky has dry eye and is being treated for that. Now, Maggie, just sad to hear of this. She could not remember how to get on Crush to ask.

Has she been checked for glaucoma as this can cause a bulging eye when it's become advanced. Painful too.

Thanks, Ann, would hope that was done but she is getting seen by another vet this week. Will surely ask her.

I hope the vet can figure it out.  Hydrocephalus can cause eye swelling, but I would think it would be both eyes.

Sounds so painful.  Poor little one.

Maggie was checked for glaucoma. Gail just posted she/Maggie can no longer see with that eye and is taking her in to an emergency clinic in Vancouver. She has an ear infection being treated and the ear drum is white on that side. Just hope she gets answers and that Maggie does not lose her sight in that eye. Just weird things with these dogs.

Hoping they find out the cause.  I would fear a tumor :(

They diagnosed her with Bell's Palsy. Who knew a dog could have this? Seems the ear infection was the cause. The vet is not sure will recover but recovery is pretty common in people. Thanks to those who responded. They did the full range of testing for Maggie so she has been well cared for.

Interesting!  I would have never thought bells palsy caused by an ear infection.  I am happy to hear there is a diagnosis, and I hope she gets better with the prescribed care.

I have heard of a dog getting Bells Palsy because he always had his head hanging out of the window of a moving car. I'm glad you have a diagnosis now, and know what you're dealing with.  Sending Maggie lots of healing Crush vibes for a quick recovery.

I had never heard of dogs getting Bell's Palsy, either.  I hope she recovers from it.

Wow, what an interesting diagnosis.  I would have never thought of that.  Glad you got it figured out and hopefully it will resolve over time.
