So I was just thinking that could be it, that it's an excitement thing... so I just examined both her eyes (which is difficult to do, she doesn't like that)... and I notice now (now that she's calmed down) that it's only her left eye, and it's only on the left side, of her left pupil, that's red. Her other eye looks fine. Now I'm starting to worry!
My husband said it's always looked like that, and the vet has seen it many times, so it's nothing... ahhhh maybe I should take her in again

Red eye started in one eye, then the other...so within a few days both were red, itchy and had discharge.

Interesting... I seem to notice it more when I've been away from her (especially when I come home from work)... and then on the weekends when I'm always with her - now that you mention it - I don't really see it [the red]. Which would make sense, if it happens when she's excited... she's out-of-control-excited when I get home from work I should start logging it - daily eye checks... see if there is a pattern to it.... thanks!
