When the lights catch my dog's eyes, it looks as if he has photographic "redeye"

Is that normal? He's 2 1/2 and I've never noticed it in him before. However, we only moved into this house recently, so not sure if it's the light reflecting off this "lovely" wallpaper or something else.

We're seeing the vet anyway on Friday for his annual shots, but just wondered if anyone else had this.

Do you mean in the dark when a light happens to catch thrit eyes!
If do that's normal.

It's a fact well known amongst Yorkie breeders/showers. You can actually tell if a puppy is going to have a good, silky show coat or a difficult cotton coat by the colour that reflects back from their retina, depending on whether it's red or green.

The dog I looked after for a night had that in one eye. It's how her owner proved the dog was hers to me. Instead of a brief description she just said "If it's my dog she will have a glowing eye"

She had a very silky coat.

I never asked what it was but her owner didn't seem concerned about it.

Mine has a gold eye shine. I always thought that all animals had it. It does make them look quite creepy in the dark.
