i wanted to ask if any of your pug has had an eye problem. My pug went to see a DR. because her eyes were red and we found out that her cornea was scratched. I was wondering if anyone else had the problem and did it heal? I am applying eye drops...as much as I can, when she's not fighting me, but I am concerned about my baby! thanks!

gizmo had a scratched cornea last year about this time. we gave him some eye drops and it healed itself. in the meantime, we needed to keep him out of sunlight.
he'll probably be OK if it isnt too bad. If it's bad, pugs might need to have some minor eye surgery. one of tricia's parents' pugs had to have some eye surgery, and she's perfectly OK now, you can't even tell that she had the surgery, although her sight out of that eye isn't perfect.

So funny that this is mentioned on the forum, my 41/2 year old male pug, rockstar had entropion surgery this past may. An entropion is an infolding of the eyelid and the surgery corrects this by cutting away some of the extra skin in that area to make the eyelid more taunt and you would never know it by looking at him that he had had surgery. Today, I brought him to the vet to get a check up and it seems that he has a bit of the entropion left. It is not safe to fully remove it so he will have to be on drops for the rest of his life and I will keep an eye on it.
The corneal abrasion will heal fine... A better investigation into what is causing the scratch would be wise as if it is an entropion like rockstars it will keep occurring without surgery.
Lots of pugs have eye problems, the best way to look for scarring is to bring them outside and look in their eyes, a scare will be a large dark haziness over the eye...
If you see this scar tissue bring em to the vet... You can look me up in 3 years when I am out of vetschool!!! LOL

Porterhouse wouldn't open his eye one day, and when I saw it, it was all red. So, off to the vet and yup...a scratched cornea. A few days with the drops and good to go.

Pug eye problems are very common. All of my pugs have been rescues, so I've seen it frequently. We buy akwa tears and give all of our pugs eye drops a few times a week as it helps with eye build up and drying.
If the vet has given you special eye drops, don't worry too much about it. It'll heal up over time.

My pug scratched her cornea. The vet said it is a very painful injury, so I had him prescribe a pain reliever for her. It was a pretty bad scratch so he sewed her eyelid shut (he actually stitched a button over her eyelid to hold it closed, she looked like someone's lost teddy bear!). Keeping the eyelid shut allowed the scratch to heal faster, and after 4 days, he removed the stitch and she was better.
Thankfully, I have pet insurance, so I was reimbursed for 70% of the medical costs!
Now I keep some terramycin antibiotic opthalmic ointment on hand, and if she seems like she's squinting, or she runs into someone's pant leg or something while she's spinning, I put it in right away to alleviate the problem before it has a chance to get worse. I also use a protective opthalmic ointment 3x a week during dry winter months, and then just use "tears" eyedrops the rest of the time. Beans doesn't like it much, but she does like the baby carrot treat she gets afterwards!

I think you need a good dr. consultancy about it. Dr. Jsalomon is good for this.

I have been using the drops in my female Pugs eyes,her vet said she had a scratch in both. We think it was the christmas tree. Now she looks like she has cataracs in both eyes they are cloudy looking and still are not healing or looking like they are,Im scared and quit the drops he prescripted,I used the drops for 4 days, 2 different drops and i dont see any improvement. They were Gentamicin ophth 5ml 3xs a day and atropine opthalmic 2xs a day. Should I look for a eye doc for animals only? emily's dad

You must then prevent your dog from scratching it again. This may lead to blindness.
