When cleaning Pug’s delicate eyes, great care must be taken. When you do clean, clean around the eye only. Use a different cloth for each eye as if they are infected you might cross infect. Use cool boiled water with a pinch of salt to clean. If in doubt, don’t hesitate to seek professional advice. Some owners say that using a Q-Tip. This isn’t a very good idea as the slightest movement could cause an eye injury, rather use a flannel dipped inside boiled water.

Cleaning your Pug’s Teeth

3 Easy Steps To Brush Your Pug’s Teeth
Taking these simple steps will make brushing a lot easier for you and your dog.
Firstly try and get your dog used to the idea. Gently massage her lips with your finger in a circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds once or twice a day for a few weeks. Then move on to her teeth and gums.
When your pug seems comfortable being touched this way then you can put some of the paste on her lips to get her used to the taste. Then you can introduce a toothbrush that has been designed especially for dogs. Toothbrushes that you can wear over your finger (or a clean piece of gauze) are also available and allow you to give a nice massage to your dog’s gums.
NEVER use HUMAN TOOTHPASTE as it is not meant to be swallowed. Regardless of how well you pug is trained, it’s unlikely you’ll get him/her to rinse and spit!
