First Aid : Eye Injuries

6. Eye Injuries:

A simple bruise can usually be dealt with by a cold compress.

If there is bleeding in the area of the eyes, apply direct pressure with dry gauze or a very clean cloth and get him to the veterinarian. Cuts or laceration of the eyeball, or penetration by a foreign object is very serious. Place a damp cloth over the injury and get to the vet quickly. Don’t try to wash the eye or remove a foreign body because you may cause further injury

If the cornea is penetrated or perforated it will be very painful, and you need to prevent your dog from scratching at his eye and doing further damage. If the eyeball is out of its socket keep it moist with saline solution such as contact lens solution and protect it from direct injury.

Seek veterinary help immediately
