    I have a two month old Pug named Bogart, who apparently has itchy eyes. One day, he puts his claw DIRECTLY into his eye and causes a hemmorage or something. The vet says he'll be fine, but he's his own worse enemy with that eye. He clawed it again last night and wouldn't drink, eat or walk. He just moans. Poor puppy. :cry  The problem is, he keeps going for that eye and making it worse! What can I do? Clipped his nails, but he still has nails.

    Get your dog an E-collar until the wound has healed.

    Where can I get one? Do you have to special order one, or can you get one at, say, Wal-Mart?

    You can get those pretty much anywhere that sells pet supplies.
    It will prevent your dog from scratching the area around his face.

    Also, maybe ask the vet if there's some kind of eyedrops to help the itch, so he doesn't injure the eye again after the collar comes off.

    Wait the vet should have given him that to begin with.

    This.

    And this.

    My wife works in a vet clinic, and e-collar is the first course of action for almost any face injury, especially a self inflicted one.

    This. Any time I've had a foster dog with a scratching/biting issue they've gotten a cone.

    HELL any time we get one with stitches of any-sort they get a cone. Makes neutering a double whammy. Lose yer nuts and end up with a headdress of shame.

    Ouch! Yeah, the posts above speak the truth.

    After you get a new vet, ask for eye drops or some kind of explanation as to why the dog is scratching his eye. Is it allergies? Infection?

    Got him an E-collar now. Poor pooch. Screams when you try to clean around his eye. Apparently our envious cat keeps swiping him in the face while we're all asleep.:mad  She's been banished from her realm of comfort.
