    One of my pugs was prone to them and they did heal good with the ointment and collar to stop them itching I was always told to not let them in the sun with the ointment not sure if the same ointment but thought I would mention that one.

    Thank you everyone he's snoozing right now, going to wake him up shortly for round one of drops and then dinner I hope he's cooperative! He hates eye drops/ointment but hopefully he'll be less mad once he sees his dinner right after and he'll forget all about it

    That's what Harvey had, a corneal ulcer. This is what I was thinking when I saw your original post. With the drops, ointments and the antibiotics and the whole cocktail of medication, Murray should be back to his old self in no time. He should be fine.
    Hug your bully today

    My guys have had corneal ulcers, just make sure he doesn't rub his eye on anything. The one drop numbs their eye so he shouldn't be wanting to rub it on anything, to be honest the eye is extremely resilient. Normally it heals up pretty quickly, just make sure to use those drops!!!

    @CCandMurray Glad he has seen the Dr. If you have trouble with getting him to let you put the drops in, I use peanut butter as a treat sometimes(if no allergy) all I have to say is "peanut butter" and they all come running to the kitchen! They love that more than anything! Sending healing prayers for Murray.He will be fine-the drops will heal.

    No thank goodness..Even with all of Abbott's entropion issues it never left a scratch or ulcer.Thankfully since he's had about 5 surgeries but we do notice that when its dark out or in a room he can't see as well.

    I'm a little concerned because while it's starting to look a little better and his eye is open much more it still seems very swollen, if he hasn't made more progress by tomorrow I will probably take him back in. Please continue to pray for us. Thank you for your support
