Don't know if I posted this in the right section but....
Just now, about 20 minutes ago I accidentally poked Milo in his left eye with my thumb. I reached down to pat him and he jumped up. He yelped a little bit then wouldn't come near me for 3 minutes or so - and of course I was very saddened by this =(
I just want to know if his eye may have any infections. My hands weren't filthy with things stuck on them, but they weren't washed with soap before hand. His left eye previously had had an infection and was treated.
Another thing I want to know is, is my relationship with him now impaired and how do I go about building it up again? He was willing to let me pat him 5 minutes after, but his tail was covering his bottom.. and he was a bit cautious of where I move my hands.
Has anyone had any accidental injuries they caused on their dog?
