A friend of our family passed away on Friday. As she wished, we took in her 3-year-old female Shih Tzu, Bebe. We already have a 12-year-old male Westie and a 3-year-old female cat (unsure of breed). Bebe is traumatized by all the sudden changes and terrified. The dogs get along fine, but my cat became possessive and hostile, which is unlike very her. They crossed paths and my cat took a swipe at Bebe, and caught her in the eye. We took her to the vet today and he said there was a "hook-like" hole in her eye from the cats claw, but if we take good enough care of it (with the medicine he gave us) she should be fine. Is this true? Or is he trying to make me feel better? I'm so worried about her :(

Thank you so much for that answer, I'm so worried about her.

That actually sounds kind of similar to what our vet said. He gave us pills (for the infection), 1 ointment to be applied once per day, and another ointment to be applied 3 times per day. He said that within 10 days she should be fine.. but if not, then he will have to perform surgery on the eye and stitch it shut for a little while. I hope it gets better within the 10 days :(
