What would cause my dogs inner eyelid to be swollen and half-closed?

The major cause of a closed eyelid and eye redness in dogs is conjunctivitis. But, a visit to the vet to diagnose  your dog's condition properly and to get treatment is necessary.

The vet will be able to undertake a much more thorough investigation of your dog's swollen eye, and hopefully start treatment for the condition straight away.

Conjunctivitis in dogs can be due to a number of factors, such as:

  • Bacterial or viral infection.
  • Injuries.
  • Allergic Irritants.
  • Parasites of eyelids.
  • Infections of eyelids.
  • Foreign material in eyes.
  • Problems of tear production.
  • Problems of tear glands
The best advice I can give is to take your dog to the vet.
