Cherry Eye

Any new or recent experiences with Cherry eye? Looks like the last thread was 2017.

My 15 week old just diagnosed yesterday. Vet downplayed and said he would fix during spaying.

We are paranoid about any illness just having lost our 18 month old female to Menego Encephalitis.
Any encouragement or info would be appreciated. Thank you!

I have no advice but so sorry to hear about this and your other dog. I wish you the very best in correcting this situation.

Well, I am new to the breed so I have no personal experience. What I have heard about it is that it can be from a weakness in that area of the eye and also an improper grooming related issue (as in tugging at the inner corner of the eye while combing). That in itself has made me super cautious, maybe even a bit paranoid! Just ask my hubby! LOL

While cherry eye is always listed as a common problem in the breed, one does not read about many personal experiences with it. Although the surgery is supposedly minor and heals readily. Yet I have read it can happen again.

In any case, I hope things turned out well for your precious little one. I am interested to know (if you get back here to read this!).

Cherry Eye

Our female Rio had surgery to remove the cherry eye from both eyes 6+ months ago. It appeared around 4 months old. She is now 9 months old. She seems to have some dryness. We put in plain lubricating eye drops twice a day. She doesn't mind the drops at all. We do wipe her eyes daily as she produces a thick white mucous. All in all, we are pleased and don't mind a little extra maintanence to keep her comfortable. We believe having the surgery was the right decision.

Good to know! Glad to hear she is doing well. Did it take long for the eye to heal up?
