|This is a funny, but not, story.
We were heading home from the farmer's market and Duncan, being the un-neutered male that he is (don't rag on me for this, he has seizures, can't go under), has to pee on everything. We were walking on the sidewalk beside some buildings and Duncan decided he had to pee on a wall. As he walked up to it and started lifting his leg, he jumped, like someone had just kicked him in the head. It turns out, he didn't see that the stone work on the wall stuck out farther at the top, than at the bottom. I believe he caught his eye on one of the stones on the wall.
It doesn't seem to bother him a lot, but he is pawing at it a bit and squinting a little from time to time. I have taken a look, and I cannot see that his lens is scratched, but I am not sure. I was wondering if I could put some polysporin eye drops in. If I did this, and the eye was scratched, would it hurt it? I just want to make sure he doesn't get an infection, as this was an area a lot of homeless and drug people hang out.
I will leave him for the night, as the eye does not look red or swollen. I cannot contact a vet until Monday, but will do so first thing Monday morning if he is still pawing at it.
Any tips, ideas, or advise would be greatly appreciated.
