Hello community,

I noticed these dark brown spots starting from the whites of both of his eyes that continue on to his light brown colored eyes. They appear to be raised and look to have texture. He is a 3 year old German Shepheard and Husky Mix. Always very energetic and playful. He has a health condition called Mega esophagus but I don’t think it’s related. I am one of those people who googles everything which just makes things worse so I really appreciate any professional help or expert insight you can give.

Thank you,

Leonidas and Luna

Hello community,

I noticed these brown spots on the corners of both of his eyes. They appear to be raised or and look to have texture. He is a 3 year old German Shepheard and Husky Mix. Always very energetic and playful. He has a health condition called Mega esophagus but I don’t think it’s related. I am one of those people who googles everything which just makes things worse so I really appreciate any professional help or expert insight you can give.

Thank you,

Maybe google pannus, and definitely make a vet appointment. I am no vet but that’s what it looks like to me.
Thanks, I’ll definitely check it out.

I wasnt challenging you, it's just the two conditions look so similar so I wondered if you knew a way to tell them apart, that's all.

To be honest id never heard of pannus and everything ive seen about pigment has always said the same thing in my personal findings. Its the amazing the amount of things you read over the yrs when you look up something else entirely. I read alot of just answer answers from the vets and theyve also said the same thing also from what ive found anyway

@Beardogjesse and @JoanneF thank you for both of your responses and Leonidas appreciates you too! For the past 3 years he’s been the closest thing to a son and I love that big guy more than anything! I’m hopeful he’s gonna be fine, I scheduled a call with vet tomorrow and I’ll send him the pics. If anyone knows a vet and could tag them on here, their opinion would be great too.

I just had a very super quick read on pannus and it mentions when it happens on the cornea not the whites of the eyes. But i take it by your photos its just the whites of the eyes as you mentioned the corner. Fantastic idea going to vet. I hope alls ok. My apologies if ive added confusion to the mix

Maybe, when you get your vet's diagnosis, you could ask if there is a way of telling and let us know?

Good luck with the appointment, I hope it is just pigmentation but better safe than sorry.

Thank you for taking the time to help me out. It looks like it’s starting in the whites but there is definitely a dark brown spot I guess I’d use the word “leaking” on to the cornea. Which certainly has me worried. And no confusion was added at all! To even know there could be a possibility of simple pigmentation gives me great hope! But no matter what happens, I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure he’s cared for, as I’m sure we’d all do for our beloved dogs.
