My colt Jet was born with these strange white spots on his eye. I'm not really sure what to make of them. So I was curious if anyone else has seen something like this. Is it possible parts of his cornea were damaged during birth or is it possible his iris is missing pigmentation. There is also another white area under his eyelid.
He is a cute little guy. No, I have never seen one born with it, however, I had a bay once that got poked in the eye by straw when he was just a wee babe and was left w a permanent mark "moon spot" on his eye that looked the same. While he always seemed to see well enough with the affected eye, the vet said it impaired his vision in that spot.
It would make me very nervous - I would call the vet for sure.
Well the only thing I can figure is that corneal damage occurred during birth. I don't think it is a tumor because after 7 months it probably I'm sure it would of grown. Or his iris is missing pigment. That is my hypothesis. =D
My paint/belgian had s white spot that looked similar when I got him as a weanling. The vet said it was a corneal ulcer and he gave me a tube of stuff to put in the eye three times daily. Not sure what it was, that was ten years ago. He never had any bad effects from it, but it did look a bit odd.
