439. The pug with the perforated ulcer at Day 42 - progress report

http://www.sinpets.com/dogs/20110315pug-male-7months-perforated-corneal-ulcer-deep-ulcerative-keratitis-toapayohvets.htm

has the full report. The perforated ulcer (long vertical red line) is healing slowly as blood vessels bring in the cells. This pug's eyeball will have ruptured and collapsed if the owners delay further treatment. The pet shop operator had been unsuccessful in selling this pug and probably has not wanted to pay for the veterinary treatment which can be quite costly.

3 images of the pug's eye at Day 0, 14 and 42 are shown here. More pictures are at the above-mentioned website.
