Shih Tzu Eye Problems

Shih Tzus are robust little dogs, but it should always be borne in mind that Shih Tzus have very prominent eyes. This makes their eyes highly susceptible to damage.

The Shih Tzu’s compressed face makes them terribly appealing to us all. But the fact that they have no prominent nose to be the first point of contact with any obstacle means that their large eyes are at risk at all times. Even contact with a bush or shrub can be enough to cause damage. Rough handling can be even worse!

Play with your Shih Tzu by all means. But bear in mind that any damage to a Shih Tzu’s eyes is likely to be serious.

So play with your Shih Tzu with care!
