Sounds like he is on the mend! Getting our pups to let us do the eye drops or manipulate their eyes is generally frustrating at first, it is good to teach even dogs with no problem. My newest girl (not a Havanese) has an eye structure that must be checked every day and cleaning drops put in or liquid tears if we are out and a piece of matter gets stuck in the eye. I had forgotton how frustrating it can be! My DH was no help...he made it worse, so I would put a piece of chicken at her nose and not let her have it until a drop went in, then I would feed right away a few times and she got it, now I hold her beard and she lets me. If you try this you will need to do this as a two person job because the drops can be expensive and you only are putting in a certain amount. If you feel your not able to get them in,,,they are so important for healing...you might ask your Vet if they come in ointment form, it is easier but you need to wash your hands before and after.
I am so glad he is on the road to recovery and you are such a good pup parent to notice the problem and act right away.
