Was the puncture wound you mentioned directly to China's eyeball or somewhere else?

The eyeball
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 4 months ago.

Ouch! Sorry to hear about her injury. This sounds serious- firstly- do you have a cone collar on hand? If so, go ahead and put it on so that she doesn't rub or paw at the eye, causing further damage. Once it is on, or if you do not have one on hand- I would recommend looking to see if there is a 24 hours clinic available in your area to take her to. If this is not an option- let me know and I will do my best to assist you further.
