My poor boy. He was running at full speed to get his ball, but not paying attention to where he was, he hit his eye on the tire jump in the field. He screamed like a stuffed pig, which caused Remington to rush to his side with worry.
Now Ruger's eye is swollen underneath. I've iced it a couple of times. The eye looks okay, but as a precaution (because he's had so many corneal ulcers) I am treating it with Cipro drops.
If he didn't have all his fur, I'm sure he'd have a nice shiner.
Awww sweet baby . Good healing thoughts for Ruger.

Ouch! Poor Ruger - I hope you can get the swelling to go down and that will be the end of it.
Poor Ruger, reminds me of when Ruby when straight on into the chain link fence at the dog park and ruptured her ear drum...DUH!

Oh no! Poor baby.

Dang ball crazy labs!!! I have one of those too! Hope his eye feels better soon.
Okay, I have to ask, how in the world did Ruby rupture her ear drum hitting the fence. Wow! She must've hit hard.
Did you check inside his mouth? He didn't bite his tongue or break a tooth?
