I find the eye surgery's the most frighting of dog problems,they need to be addressed as soon as possible, it is so great that you noticed and got him back for surgery. He should be fine be sure you keep him in that cone...for me it became my safty net...and put all drops in...Oscar will be back to his old self soon. My shih tzu had three emergency eye surgerys and one repair...it never got easier...it is a big relief when they are better. Hughs to you and belly rubs for Oscar.

Thanks everyone. When I picked him up yesterday, it looked like his eye was going to fall out of his head The doctor said that he had a small hemorrhage at the ulcer site but they stopped the bleeding quickly. He acted totally normal when I brought him home- he ate normally and wanted to play too. I tried to keep him calm and quiet though. His eye looks a little better this morning (still red and a little bulging though). He doesn't like when I go near it to put the drops in or even to look at it, so my husband has to hold him while I put the drops in. We go back on Monday to check it... I can update you more then. Oh- and this time he didn't regress with his potty training

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.
