PostPosted: Mon Apr 30, 2007 12:40 pm Post subject: punctured eyes Reply with quote

I wanted to say hello and introduce ourselves. I am the proud mom to Tessy. Tess is a 13 month old fawn female, the love of our life! She was lost for almost 2 weeks (found on sunday, would've been 2 weeks monday) it was the most horrible 2 weeks of our lives! When she was found and returned to us, she was very thin and dehydrated and had punctured both of her eyes cry I immediately took her to the vet and he put her on eye drops (Gentamicin Sulfate Ophthalmic Solution) 4-6 times a day. This was a week ago, today. She goes back to the vet at 2 pm today to see how she's doing. He thinks he can save both eyes, but the one still looks awful! I've been doing her drops religiously! Her right eye (I think it is) is brown and normal looking, except for a small puncture, but no color changes in her eye, it is healing good, I think. The other eye was a much larger puncture to begin with and has red around it and is cloudy, alot of the time, even with the drops. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had a major problem like this with their babies eyes and have they been ok? I guess we will find out more today, but it's frustrating waiting. Thanks for letting us join the group, we are still looking around Very Happy

Welcome! Glad you found us. More importantly, glad you found your Tessie after being lost for two weeks. What a miracle! Someone else may have answers for you on Tessie's eyes. Hopefully she will keep both of them.

Poor baby.... I am so glad she was found. What a horrible experience for you and her both! I hope both her eyes can be saved and she recovers soon. I have no answers on the eye problem but wanted to wish you and Tessie well.

I am so sorry your pug is suffering but relieved you found her! You may want to consider an appointment with a vetrinarian opthamalogist rather than just your regular vet... sometimes vets without a lot of eye experience will prescribe a basic treatment for eye injuries which may not be the best course of action. I would find a specialist asap in order to have the best chance of saving both eyes. Our Java just had a mild scratch and will actually require surgery because of entropion that developed from the injury which our very experienced vet did not catch. Please keep us updated on your pug's progress.

We both say thanks for the great welcome and blessings! I just did her drops again (boy she knows what the little white bottle means now!) I don't know how any of you feel, but this is the only dog that I've ever been owned by that seemed soooo.... well human Stunned It amazes me! As soon as I figure out how to do a picture on here, I will put one up of her. I will keep you posted on what we find out today for her eyes. She's also started cough/sneezing, kinda hard to describe, maybe chuffing? I'm worried it might be a cold, since at least a week of the time she was missing, the nights were still darn cold! She's a spoiled pooch and only goes out to potty! So we are going to ask about that also. Thanks again for the support and welcome!

The noise that she is making, the "chuffing" that you describe, could just be reverse sneezing, which is similar to post nasal drip in humans. It is nothing to worry about. Let me ask you.......does she sound like she's trying to bring up a loogy? If so, it's reverse sneezing.
As for the eyes, I second the opinion of a veterinary opthamologist. A pug's eye can literally melt [it's called a melting ulcer], if proper treatment isn't given quickly and aggressively. She may have to have that eye sewn shut until it heals, to save it.

Yes, I think that would describe it, almost hacking, but nothing comes up? Or a sneeze, but nothing comes out? She's had a runny nose also, so I'll bet you're right on the sounds she's begun making. I can't say her eye problems have slowed her down much, right now she's begging for lunch from my 3 year old LOL. She also blows boogies out ALOT! I've gotten use to it, but not my husband LOL.

We wanted to give you guys an update on our vet visit today for Tessy. He put a green dye looking eye drops in and shut down the lights. It was so amazing to see the actual injuries so clearly. The dye showed it pretty good. I was relieved to hear it isn't as bad as he thought! The one eye is looking good, probably won't even scar, it's almost healed completely now. The eye I was so worried about is healing, but will take time. We have to continue the eye drops until the end of this week, when she goes back into the vet for another check up. At that time, he will decide if he can progress to an eye salve. I told him about her scratching at her ears and low and behold, an ear infection! So we have meds for that also. It's no wonder with the weather she was out in. I will keep you updated. We love this site!
Angie and Tess

I don't know if I could have slept if they were missing. I lost Maxie in a closet one day and completely freaked out. So glad she is back with you and her eyes are healing and the ear infection was found so that can be treated. Yes they own us we do not own them. I agree with Beth and the others that a check up with an eye specialist might be in order. Both of mine have had minor corneal scratches that have healed but a puncture is another thing. It may just be for peace of mind for later on and to have a reference if something should come up later. But in either case keep us posted and can't wait to see pics.
