Here’s a helpful tip for everyone:
1. If you have a brachycephalic breed dog (pug, bulldog, Boston terrier, etc) you need to be very careful with their eyeballs since they are particularly susceptible to eye injury.
2. This means, you probably shouldn’t let them roll around in the sandbox.
3. If they do roll around in the sandbox, and you notice a ton of sand in their eye, instead of wiping it out and thus dragging it all over the eyeball, rinse it out with saline. Better yet, call your vet.
4. When that eye puffs up, swells shut, and turns white, waiting a few days will not improve the situation. Ouch!
