A Popping Eyeball!

Published: 16 Dec 2018

Sometimes snub-nosed dogs have issues with their eyeballs literally popping out - it sounds dreadful but these poor pets have shallow eye sockets, so trauma or even stress can lead to a condition called "proptosis of the globe" (a mouthful, we know). The eye can be returned back to its original position with surgery but it is always a bit touch-and-go regarding the vision returning to normal. Full recovery, including whether or not the eye can be saved, depends on how long and severe the original injury was. This video shows you over time how this poor little critter recovered from the procedure.
