Dexter has a Cherry Eye

I noticed something different in Dexter's eyes (his left) in the inner corner of the eye. Barely noticeable, but I knew what it was.

Looked it up on the Internet and said it should be treated immediately.

Took Dexter as a Walk-In to the Vet. Waited 1 1/2 hours to be seen. The Vets office was very busy with pets checking out from surgery from that morning. I have a good Vet.

Anyway...The Cherry Eye was caught early, so we will be trying eye ointment twice a day (Neobacimyx).

I was told there are two ways to fix the Cherry Eye.

1. Remove it, and then the dog will not have tear production which may up being a problem later on and you will have to drop eyes to keep them moist later in life.
2. The "Tuck In" in which they just push the Cherry Eye back in and stitch closed. Chance of the Cherry Eye coming back, there is a chance.

My Vet used to do both Surgeries, but now he only does the "Tuck," this makes sense to me in order to save the tear duct production.

So, we will see how the Eye ointment goes for the next week to help heal the Cherry Eye. I will try to get a picture of Dexter during the day in natural light tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about Dexter.

Scudder had the tuck surgery years ago. The surgery went fine. They actually carved a pocket and then tucked it.

Keep us posted and good luck

Dexter is so good when I am applying the thin line of ointment along his eye. Now, if I can just figure out how to get my pictures onto this computer.

I know the email trick. My battery is dying in the phone, so no internet access until the new battery arrives, so no email trick.

How can you transfer pictures on Smart Phone to computer?

Our late, sainted beagle had cherry eye that was healed entirely by the medication. Hopefully yours will as well.

So sorry to hear about that. It is so unsightly too! Oscar had the cherry eye surgery 2 weeks ago. His had the tuck surgery (the pocket procedure). His eye is still redder than the other eye and still slightly swollen. He doesn't bother the eye though- so I guess it doesn't bother him. The cone thing was no fun either. Good luck and keep us posted!

I have a Mac, so I use iCloud. Pictures automatically upload to my computer. Before I had iCloud, I would email the picture to myself. Then I would open the email from the computer and save or drag it to my album or desktop.

Poor Dexter! Thank heavens you recognized it so quickly. I didn't know they could get it at his age. For some reason, I thought it was a puppy thing.
