WELL... long story is, my dog is 10yr old & agressive especially w/people he doesnt know

  • Wow - you know this can happen to a human's eyes too.


    One big sneeze and boom - they can pop.


    After time - the are will heal but there may be some scar tissue on the inside of the eye/


    You can try some supplements for helping the eye to heal - see here:


    Heals cataracts -

  • I'm sooo sorry your pooch is having this trouble.

    I don't know how to treat the problem, but I do know that vets have sedation pills you can give to your pet. Maybe you can ask for some for future groomings at home?

    I used some for my cats when we needed to relocate 800 miles away.
