My vet is very skilled and will be fixing Jack's eyelids so they don't scrap against his eyes and eventually cause blindness.  I feel so bad and guilty for taking Jack in for this procedure plus I feel like he won't come back because I am afraid he will die from the surgery.  Do pugs have problems with surgery.   I had him fixed and his nose done several years ago and he did fine.   I just feel so guilty.  I want to be there for him.

It sounds like Jack needs this surgery to save his sight. Try to be as positive as you can in thinking about his surgery. Any kind of surgery is a risk, but the brachy breeds can have problems with anesthesia. Make sure your vet has experience with brachy breeds and doesn't remove the breathing tube until they are chewing on it.

I am a big believer in gut instinct though. Really examine your thoughts. Are you getting this feeling because of surgery or because of timing? Is it a gut instinct or pug parent paranoia? We can get a little crazy about our guys, I've been there many times.

Good luck on your decision and keep us posted.

Bella has had eye surgery for entropion on both eyes.  It was necessary for her eyesight and she came through it very well.  I currently administer GenTeal (moderate/severe formula) in her eyes 1-2 times a day to keep them well-lubricated.

bubba had eye surgery for both entropion and his eyelids needed to be reshaped so he could fully close his eyes....

and, yes, we felt terrible.....it was a double whammy surgery for the baby and he had to wear the cone of shame for three weeks....

had to feed him by hand....had to show him how to pee....

could NOT take that cone off, for fear he would rub his face...

it wasn't a pleasant three weeks...but it was worth it, for both bubba and us..

imagine every time you blink, your scratching your eye.....your eyelashes are permanently in your eye..that's what your pug is going through every time he blinks...

our pug in his two years of life had already lost 15% of his vision....

yes, we were scared....it is, after all, eye surgery....it was expensive and we had to take him to a specialist...and it was the worst three hour wait i've had with any of my dogs....but he did fine...these surgeries are done quite frequently and not just with pugs.....all kinds of dogs get this....

so, take a deep breath...know that you're doing the best for your baby....and it should be all right....

Hi There,

My Pearl had this same surgery. It went incredibly well. Might I suggest that you be grateful this procedure is available and because of that your Darling Jack will NOT loose his sight and the pain he now feels will go away? Really, years ago this surgery was not available and so many needy "bug-eyed" doggies had to suffer with the pain AND the loss of sight.

I know it's not easy handing over your Baby for this sort of thing...and unless you have a REAL reason that you think the surgery won't be successful...take him and KNOW you are doing him a wonderful service.

Pug Hugs,
Elizabeth, Lola & Pearl

My beloved Otis, who is no longer with us, had 2 similar surgeries on his eye, he came through just fine, have faith. It is a hard decision to make, but I felt it was worth it.

Have your vet use a reversible anesthetic.  My vet uses that on my boys so if anything starts to go wrong with their breathing he can bring them up out of anesthesia quickly.  I believe the way he explained it is that he gives them one shot to put them out and then he gives a second shot which brings them around quickly, instead of them having to sleep it off.  It's more expensive but worth the peace of mind to me, and the boys recover from it a lot quicker.
