I'm so sorry to see poor Zoe afflicted with Cherry Eye. I just read all about it and discovered that the sooner the treatment the better. They strongly suggest repositioning rather than removing the gland. Wishing you and Zoe the best. Here is the link:

Already saw that. Thank you for kindness. Called vet in Sandy Springs and she will call back Tuesday. Holiday weekend makes making haste difficult.

Well, Tuesday we saw the top rated vet in the Atlanta area, has lasers and all that, and he wants to wait until she is spayed to do repositioning as at less than five pounds her stitches would require micro surgery. Also, her weight makes anesthesia more dangerous. I will get second opinion on Monday and she is getting moisturizing eye drops. The eye gland goes in and out, you are able to push back in and then it comes out again. After her puppy rest times you can barely see it.

I told him I wanted her to be at least a year old before her spay. Originally, since she is so agile, I wanted to wait until she was two so we could do agility trials. He said he recommended they not go through a second heat before they are spayed, but was fine with her waiting for a year.

Meantime, Kosmo the orchid is getting his neuter with this vet, instead of chain vet. His second scrotum was, at six months old, palpated in the lingal area and at the top of his thigh. There are many major arteries there and I want the smallest incision possible and for the surgeon to try to get at it without making an incision at the thigh. Also, laser means faster healing. This will cost $600.

Even though Zoe stood up on her front paws the first time I served her raw food (I felt like I was having a hallucination) we are going to focus on Brothers Complete kibble for a while with a little goats milk and raw as treats. Dog budget is outdistancing house repair budget.

The chain vet would not even discuss with me how the surgery would be done and where the incision for the retained testicle would be.

While you do want to get it treated promptly, it is NOT an emergency. She will be fine waiting a few day.

It is not uncommon in some lines of Havanese, and fortuantely, it is easily corrected, and not a long term problem... even in terms of looks. Just make sure that the person who fixes it is experienced. The more often they do these repairs, the better they get at it.

While, all things being equal, I would put off spaying until after at least the first heat and one year of age, when there are other reasons for surgery, you also have to then weigh in the risks of a second anaesthesia or, instead, waiting longer to do the surgery. Sometimes, spaying earlier CAN be the best solution for an individual dog. It soundds like you are in good hands, and getting good advice from your current vet.

My Bella, has cherry eye right now, she had it in the other eye once before, doctor gave me she gel and it worked for the first one, so far it's not working for themselves eye. I called yesterday to get drops instead of gel so I would be sure to get the medicine into it. I am picking it up today. She is so wiggly I have a hard time putting the gel in. She looks awful but it doesn't séem to bother her energy wise. I hope it goes down. So far the other eye has stayed down. She is 7 months old
