It is a problem that is common in smaller breed dogs, more in dogs that have bulging eyes. If you look it up online, you can see a picture of it, and I believe there is a tread related to his somewhere. Lexi had a cherry eye, red bulge in the corner of her eye, and had it corrected surgically. She is great now!! The problem with it is that the vets and vet opthemologist will not guarantee their surgery and often times it pops again. If you catch it early and have it corrected I read that a reoccurance is less likely. Do you think that Lily has one?

No. I read about it in the insurance thread and hadn't heard of it before. Thanks for the info.

Thanks Kara! Rufus is doing great, and the surgery results are fabulous! You can't even tell there was ever anything wrong.

Yes, here's a link to the thread.. http://havaneseforum.com/showthread....t=rufus+cherry scroll down on page two to see the pic. He had surgery at the same time as Cathy's girl Dani and he's looking so good now! You'd never know to look at him he ever had a problem.
