    My pug is hiding! He won't come out from under the chairs, his eyes also have got some pus and he hasn't eaten his food. I've brought him out from under chairs but he returns, tried to coax him to eat, or drink. Allowed him access outside but he's not interested.
    I know to separate the symptoms, his eyes are quite normal for a pug, they will just need cleaning and keeping an eye on. And his hiding- perhaps the thunderstorms scared him last night and he needs a bit of reassurance, then hopefully he might eat something. I guess I just would like advise, thoughts, confirmation. Im worried

    Do you mean gunk/sleep in his eyes? If you actually mean pus, then it's not normal for any dog even a pug and I would be up the vet now

    Pus in the eyes is NOT normal for a Pug! I would get him to a vet ASAP.

    Thankyou everybody for your replies and advice!!
    I really appreciate it.
    Pus was perhaps the wrong word, but I've cleaned him up and checked his eyes for anything in them. They are still clean and bright now.
    I didn't have access to a vet earlier so I phoned, vet isn't too worried so I'm keeping an eye on him. He's brightened up already.
    He's only a youngster and is a bit skitty, he's not good with thunderstorms :)
    If he's not back to 100% in a little while I'll have a visit to the vet!
    Thanks again!!

    TBH it sound pretty normal to me. If my dogs hear thunder they go to where they feel safe. Under a table usually. Leave him alone under his chosen chair, He`ll come out quicker if you don`t fuss round him. Act normally and that will give him confidence.
