Q. Dog scratched his eyeball
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. I would strongly recommend to take him to your veterinarian as soon as possible in case of a corneal ulceration/damage. This condition would require immediate diagnosis and treatment.
A. Place an e-collar (cone) on him to prevent scratching or rubbing. Schedule an appointment with your vet or a veterinary ophthalmologist. Any eye injury should be evaluated and treated as soon as possible. A scratch on the cornea is quite painful and can lead to infection or permanent damage.

A. If your dog has a scratch on his cornea then he needs to be seen by a veterinarian for treatment. Your veterinarian can perform a fluorescein stain to evaluate the cornea for a scratch and prescribe medications to help treat.
