My dog developed a small reddish purple lump on her eyelid. Was wondering what it could be?

Hi there, its a shame we don't have an image upload function on the site as it would be great to see the lump.

Most likely your dog has a little meibomian cyst (Chalazion) which is caused by inflammation of a gland within the skin. It can grow and get painful so I would recommend you having your dog checked by a veterinarian.

Having your veterinarian check it will also help to rule out other things... I've even seen ticks on eyelids before...

Hope that helps a little! | 08.13.15 @ 18:34
