Yesterday morning my dog was squinting his eyes a lot more then he use too. My girlfriend and I thought he might just be overly tired, but as the day went in it got worse. His eyes started swelling. So we took him to the vet and they said they don't know what's wrong and they don't think it's anything to do with his eyes. They gave pain meds and knumbing eye drops but even today they are just as bad as they were yesterday but with no swelling. What might it be since the vet can't even figure it out?

He does have flees and maybe it's the flees causing it?

It could be the fleas but I highly doubt it. Since today he's not having any swelling. I would give what the vet gave you a few more days to see if it helps any more. Another thing you could take into consideration is that it could be seasonal allergies. Have you changed his food lately or anything else that he was used too. He could also just be tired like you thought. Just give it some time. But if it doesn't get better I would definitely take him back! keep an eye on him! good luck!
