Eye problem

Today while i was at school and my sister and mom were home, obi went to take a bone away from my bigger dog (a golden) and she bit him. At first my mom thought it was really bad because he was screaming for a long time then when she got him calmed down all she could find was a cut on his eye. He has one scrape on his bottom eye lid and 2 ( a big one and small one) on his upper eye lid. He seems to be perfectly normal, and to be seeing just the same. I was wondering if i should bring him to the vet. My mom says theres no reason to but im just worried. Is there really anything they can do that i cant? Just walking in there costs $30 and i dont want to just waste it on something thats not needed.


ps. the other dog has never done anything to hurt him before but im going to watch them more carefully and make sure he doesn't try to steal anything away from her again, because she is the dominant dog.

If it was me I would bring him in to be checked. There may be a chance of infection, the eye itself could have been scratched and need attention, maybe bandaged up or cleaned out etc. The Vet has equipment to look into his eye and see things you cannot see just looking at it. I would also keep the two dogs seperated, maybe gate off a section or a room for the little one, just to be on the safe side. I hope your little one is OK, give him a hug from us
