Update - 10th October 2015 : One Eye Jack is currently in a dry pen which will allow his eye drops to work until the vet is happy that the wound has completely healed. Then the pup will then learn how to feed for himself in water before moving down to the main pools! This pup is currently on antibiotics, pain killers, multi-vitamins, iron supplements and having eye drops every 2 hours throughout the day.
