Adventures in Eyeballs

Lola Pug injured her eye about a week ago, and even with her Uncle Deji’s prescribed treatment, she wasn’t getting any better. So off to the specialist we went to see what magical spell she could cast to heal the little one’s injury.

The Pug was happy for the adventure, but she was suspicious. Very suspicious….


There are dogs who are terrified at the vet, dogs who are indifferent, and then there is Lola Pug. Although always alert and on guard, her tail never stops wagging, and she arrives eager to make new friends and learn new things. (Poor little dude she’s keeping her eye on here had a gastrointestinal blockage. We hope he’s okay!)


I had optimistically (aka naively) hoped that the opthamologist would simply prescribe new drops and send us on our way, but The Pug ended up undergoing a corneal debridement and a grid keratotomy to help her eye heal. *shudder*

Needless to say, Lola Pug was MUCH braver than I would have been in the same situation. (It might also have helped that the clinic had an expert “pug hugger” to hold her still during the surgery.)

It was pretty traumatic for her, but she came out of it all with a pile of new meds and a new cone, and her tail was curled tightly (always a good sign of a pug’s mood) as she rather eagerly left the specialist’s office.


On closer inspection, I thought for a minute that she might be turning into a pug version of The Incredible Hulk – which really wouldn’t surprise me much, given the power of her hind leg kicks when she doesn’t want a certain doctor to look at her eyeball.


Sleep off those glowing green eyes, my little one. You’ll hopefully be cone-free in a few weeks, and all will be right with the world again.

You pugs and your eyes. Your beauty is also your weakness, little ones.

Now get some rest, and get better, little Bean!
