    Boxers do sometimes have more trouble healing eye ulcers. Mine just had one (my doberman scratched his eyeball) and he was pretty pathetic. It was pretty deep, but he had an antibiotic ointment and 5 days of doxycycline. I work for a vet's office and the doctors just went to a continuing education class with an eye specialist who recommends the doxycycline. We tried it on my dog and another dog who had an ulcer that wouldn't heal and both cleared up right away. I can't even tell that he had anything wrong and he rubbed it constantly when he thought that I wasn't looking....
