Q. Our Golden Retrievers eye (the white part) is red, is this something we should be concerned with. Its not bothering him and its only his right eye

A. Try rinsing it with hyoptic or water in case it has something in there like dust. If it continues, gets worse or starts to bother him then you should see your vet as some eye problems left untreated can cause irreversible damage.
