Default Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

All hell broke loose yesterday. I took him to the vet who said his ulcer was really bad and the eye was in danger of popping. She discussed euthanasia but I'm not giving up on him that easily. She said it was an emergency so referred me to a specialist eye surgeon, 90 miles away. She injected him with morphine and I set off. Luckily he slept most of the way. The eye surgeon said the ulcer was perforated and in any other dog, she would have removed the eye there and then but because of his adverse history with general anaesthetic, she thought there was a high risk of death if she put him under, so we have an aggressive treatment regime to follow, 4 different eye drops, 6 times a day, antibiotics etc. We are finding it impossible to get the drops in him though. He fights so much. Before my wife left for work this morning, we manage to get all 4 drops in, but not without a fight and he bit both of us.

I have no idea how I'm going to cope on my own.
