Pugs have incredibly large and loving eyes. Due to their prominence on a pug's face, it is important to take special care of the eyes to prevent infection, injury or irritation. This type of care can help keep the eyes healthy and clear from debris and other irritating particles. If an eye health concern does arise, you should consult your veterinarian for further evaluation.

Step 1

Inspect your pug's eye. Take note of the eye color, discharge (if any), cloudiness level, and any other abnormalities that may be present. Pay special attention to any debris that may be stuck in Pugsly's eye. Consult your veterinarian if the eye appears to be infected or irritated.

Step 2

Gather your saline solution. Be sure to use a saline solution that does not contain preservatives.

Step 3

Wash your pug's eye area with saline solution. This is especially important if you have noticed any debris in your pug's eye.

Step 4

Clean Pugsly's eyes with your soft, damp cloth or gauze pad as often as needed. This will help remove any discharge.

Step 5

Protect your pug from further eye irritation by preventing him from accessing his eye. This can be done with a cone or a thick collar.

Step 6

Hold a warm, soft cloth against your pug's eyes. This compress will help to soothe any irritation or discomfort that he might be experiencing. Use the compress for five minutes at a time, alternating from eye to eye.

Step 7

Continue to use the compress, saline rinse and damp cloth to keep your pug's eyes clean and healthy. Repeat these steps on a daily basis to ensure that your pug will remain infection free.
