Hello pug fans!
Long time, no speak
My beautiful boy is now 1, but for the last 2-3 months we've been through quite a lot of distress with his eyes and ears.
H has recently had surgery on his right eye, due to a ruptured ulcer. He has a graft that is taking a long time to heal. It was all starting to look better but yesterday we noticed another small white bump on the very top corner of the same eye. He doesn't seem distressed by it, but we took him to the vets and they suggested we go back to the Ophthalmologist... however they said that it didn't sound like an emergency and from the picture the vet sent it didn't look like it was a ruptured ulcer, and it could wait until Monday. I just hope we've made the right call.
We're now giving him drops and ointment on his eye, but I just want this to be healed now. He's been through so much with it!!
...and to top it off, this last week, I've noticed a flakey skin on his ears and at the top of his front legs (what we call his armpits!). I've started using a hibiscrub and an ointment, and hoping this will help.
So sorry for the rant, but I know you would all understand what I'm going through. It would be great to hear from those who have been through something similar.
H is being a trooper; he's as bouncy and mad as ever!
