A thorn in Molly’s eye

Molly is a spaniel who loves running through bushes but one day her owner noticed that her right eye was weeping more than normal and she was holding it partly closed. She was brought in to see vet Becky.

Becky examined Molly’s eye and put some dye in that stains up any damage to the surface of the eye. She could see a tiny puncture wound to the front of the eye, likely from a thorn. She was given some pain relief and antibiotics and started on some eyedrops.

By the next day the area was getting bigger and so she was admitted so that with our 24 hour care we could make sure that she was having the drops in her eyes every few hours. She went home after a few days and the eye was looking much better.
