    Hi
    I have 3 Minorcas (got them about a month ago) and one of them has developed a large swollen lump just near her right eye. As a result of it getting bigger, her eye has now closed. It seems to be about the size of a grape. I remember when I got her I noticed that her eye was a bit odd but thought nothing of it until the lump started about a week ago. Does anyone have any idea what it could be? Swollen sinus perhaps or 'one-eye cold'?
    Thanks
    Marin
