    Mast cell tumor on eye lid

    New to this site. I hope u can help. I have a 10 yr old lab... Calvin, he had. MCT removed from his eye lid last year and the area still swells up and gets red. I feel so bad for him! I heat uo chamomile tea bags and put them against the area and it helps a bit. Any one have any other ideas. Please share some advice.

    I'm sorry I don't have an advice for you.  Have you called your vet and asked them about it?

    Welcome; I agree with Jackie; you should consult with your vet. They may be able to prescribe some eye drops that would help; good luck.

    I'm going to third making **sure** the vet knows.  Mast cell are histamine tumors -- they may want you to use either an anti-inflammatory or an anti-histamine on it, but it would need to be eye/vet quality.  The chamomile won't hurt but it's not a treatment here, and you may be unwittingly letting something go or grow that the vet needs to see
