Q. My cat caught my pugs eye yesterday she can open it but keeps closing it and it is watering she keeps rubbing her eye on a pillow

A. Have your pug seen by your veterinarian today. Eye injuries are considered emergencies and should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid infection, permanent damage and pain. Place an e-collar (cone) on her to prevent rubbing until she sees the vet.
