I am dealing with this right now! Mesa, an Alaskan Malamute, third eyelid is completely covering her eye. She was diagnosed 5 days ago with a scratched cornea. I could see her beautiful brown eyes on Wed., two days later. On Thursday, she was worse with swelling. We were back at the vet on Friday. Her eye was really swollen, and she felt miserable. I could see what looked like a cherry eye, but the placement was wrong. I was given stronger antibiotics and eyedrops instead of ointment. On the way home, when I could see, this "cherry eye" thing busted. She immediately perked up. It was almost instantaneous, but the blood running our of her eye horrified me. I called the vet. He things whatever this was was putting pressure on her eye. I am still getting some drainage, but she has definitely perked up, but still a third eyelid showing. Re-eval on Monday. How long did it take for the third eyelid to disappear? The vet is really unsure of what is going on.
