This little sweetie is Aspen, a 2 year-old Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix. Her mom says that Aspen is her baby, and she was worried sick when Aspen woke up with an infected eye. Check out some signs of what to look for in a canine eye infection above!
Aspen's mom is disabled and unable to work, and her dad only gets paid once a month, and payday was a few weeks away. They applied to Fur Kids Foundation for assistance because they knew they could not wait any longer with the infection.
Luckily, Aspen only had a slight eye infection. After examined by their veterinarian, Aspen was given some medicine to help clear the infection up because her parents caught it early enough!
According to PetMD, if you see tearing, discharge, tear-stained fur, cloudiness, a visible third eyelid, closed or squinted eyes, or pupils of unequal size, something could be wrong. It's time to give your vet a call.
