scooby recently has a darker spot on his pupil, other than that his health is normal, is it somethn to worry about




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Most of the time when we see this it is something called an iris freckle and it is nothing to worry about. It could also be an iris cyst. These look like little black blobs of ink in the eye. They are nothing to worry about as well.

If the area looks raised or fuzzy or velvety then it could be a tumor.

Ideally, it would be great to have your vet take a look! If you'd like to reply I can give you the address where you could send me a photo.
