White of eye, looks reddish is this a Springer Spaniel trait
Bunty 8 weeks
Hi,Return to Your Springer SpanielsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
Bunty is a 12 week old black and white english springer spaniel. She has been given a full vet check at 7 weeks (30 mins + 1st puppy jab), followed with the second jab and check, three weeks later.
Growing huge, 1 kilo a week, increased from 2.7 Kgs when we got her at 5.5 weeks, now sitting at 9.7kgs. (I know we got her very early). Mum was 7 yrs old with her first litter of 11 pups and they had been weaned two week previously). Vet advised,
Owners had said she was 7 weeks old when we purchased her, but a subsequent phone call, to establish date of birth for Vet Records proved different.
She is mad as a brush, hyper, thriving, very intelligent, has picked up commands sit, bed, since the first two days at home.
On top range dog food, (with the addition of Grade 1 steak mince, chicken breast, carrots plus olive and sunflower oil. (No rubbish, or human food).
Plenty of exercise, (within puppy limitations) we live 5 mins from a sea estuary (Firth of Forth, Edinburgh) being a spaniel, who is water mad, dipping daily, comes home, she reeks (Scottish term for smelling awfull).
Sorry gone completely of of track, since we have got Bunty, the white's of her eyes can look red, not inflamed, but what we look like if we have had a heavy night out. Her eyes were like this when we took her the vet, but they did not notice this, is this normal, as they are never white.
George sometimes gets this when he is tired, but I would get your vet to check it out just to be on the safe side, especially as she is a pup
PS she is a beauty
