I just found out that my 4 month old puppy Sam will need eye drops a couple of times a day for the rest of his life. He can't close his eyes completely and he sleeps with his eyes open, so they get very dry and sore and he rubs them a lot.
The problem is that when I apply the drops, he squeals and bites and gets very upset. It takes ages to get him to stay still for long enough. I've tried using treats, but so far it hasn't helped. I feel like I'm torturing him, and he is a bit afraid of me now.
I was wondering if anyone who has experience of this has any tips for how to apply them?
He also needs his anal glands emptied regularly, but I really don't want to even think about that battle yet
