A Pug needing a “Face Lift”
This 6 month old pug had been experiencing problems with his eyes for a month or so. He has too much skin on his face!! He has pronounced nasal folds which i felt to be rubbing on his eyes and the lower eyelids were turned in and rubbing on the eyes also.
He needed the veterinary equivalent of a face lift!!
Under general anaesthesia, we used diathermy to remove the nasal folds and a small wedge of skin was removed from under the lower eyelids. Many stitches were placed.
He will be able to see much better and hopefully his eyes will no longer water all the time.
