NC...my thoughts are with you, and I had a similar experience on Christmas day with my puppy. She is 11 weeks old, and a cat clawed her right eye...punctured the retina. I had to drive her 2 hours to an animal hospital that had an opthamologist on call. The emergency center in the city I live in didn't have the right equipment to work on her eye. So the doc performed surgery on Abby's eye Christmas night. She seems to be doing better, but still has the possibility of losing the eye should an infection develop! I don't think she can see at all out of her eye. But I've got my fingers crossed for her! It killed me to see my pup hurting so bad! This is a pic of her once I got her home after surgery!
