Q. My dog got hit in the eye with a kick ball.... He was squinting at first but not so much anymore. He doesn't seem like he's in any pain!

A. That's good, he was probably squinting from the trauma but hopefully no damage done. Monitor his eye, if you don't see any excessive tearing or squinting by tomorrow then he should be fine.
