red crocheted pirate eye patch for small dogs by by yourmomdesigns, $4.00
How to use this: Hold the patch towards you, with your design in the correct position. Slide the under elastic towards you. Put the dog muzzle between the elastic & patch. Then pull the other elastic, behind the ears. With a bit of adjusting both elastic pieces, it should fit fine. Make sure you have moved the patch itself, over the proper eye.
I wanted to say thank you for the perfect eye patch for my little blind dog, Casey. She has one glass prosthetic eye and just three weeks ago she had surgery on her other eye. We had that one removed because the other procedure caused her so much pain. We bought her a skull and cross bones collar to go with her patch. We gave her some cute attitude with the patch and we love it. Thanks for giving our friendly and cute little dog the chance to let her personality show without “creeping out” our friends and neighbors.

How to Make an Eye Patch for a Dog thumbnail
Iggy is a foster pup who was found wandering on the streets of GA and ended up in a high kill shelter. The Perfect Pets Rescue team decided it wasn't Iggy's time to go so they pulled him from the shelter even though he was extremely matted and left eye had a bad infection. Sadly the eye could not be saved they cleaned him up and paid for his operation to remove his eye and now he's in a foster home. He was so happy to receive his eye patch and it looks fabulous on him. It was a perfect fit right out of the envelope and he wears it proudly. We are hoping this will make him look a little less scary to potential adopters as he is a fabulous dog with a good heart.Dogs may have an eye problem if their eye looks cloudy, red, has a discharge -- or if your dog is keeping one eye closed or trying to rub his eye. The most frequent eye problems that dogs suffer from are infection, corneal ulcers, injuries, irritation, pink eye and problems with their eyelids. Only a veterinarian would know what treatment should be prescribed for a dog with an eye problem and whether or not they should wear an eye patch. Veterinarians have the appropriate type of dog eye patch. However, it is possible to make your own eye patch for a dog. My father took the loss of Nessie's eye due to a play injury much worse then my little scrapper did. She's adjusting to wearing a patch as she loves to go commando at all times, but even my father admits his little granddog looks badass sporting her custom patch.Tie the patch to your dog's head. It should go just above the eye that needs to be covered, under the good eye, around the back of his head and under the ear of the eye that needs to be covered so that it will stay in place. Tie a secure knot at the back of your dog's head. Ensure that it is a snug fit so that it won't come off -- but not so tight that it would be uncomfortable for the dog or restrict blood flow.
