Maggie's Cherry Eye

I learned about cherry eye on this forum, so when it showed up on Maggie's eye, I knew immediately what it was. The next day it had disappeared, but I took her to the Vet anyway. She couldn't see it either, but prescribed an ointment for 3 days because her eye was a little red. A week later the cherry eye popped up again.....it's pretty small, but Vet said it's best to take care of it ASAP. So, Maggie is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Many thanks to the posters on this forum, so I know what to expect. Here's a picture.....I hope......

Awww. Cassie had cherry eye repaired and was not phased by it at all. I did get her a soft cone to wear (cozy cone) instead of the lamp shade. It made her much more comfortable! Best wishes for her tomorrow.

Aww, Good luck Maggie!! I agree about the soft cone, Sonic hated the lampshade.

I remember when Sonic had Cherry Eye that it was a chore to get him to sit still facing the camera for a picture, now (about a month after surgery) he sits and poses perfectly, like he's saying 'I know I look good again, so go ahead and take that picture'

Thanks for all of your kind comments and encouragement! Dropped Maggie off at the Vet clinic this morning.....it's only about 6 blocks from here, so never have had a problem with her getting carsick. She bounced all the way to the door, and once inside encountered a humongous great dane. She then bounced into the waiting area and pooped big time......she had just done her business before we left home. A little car sick or maybe the great dane scared the you know what out of her? Either way, it didn't phase her because she found a little boston terrier to pal around with.

Maggie is home and is acting very squirrely and uncomfortable with the plastic "lampshade" around her head. I asked the Vet tech about getting a soft cone.....they don't have them at the clinic, but she said they wouldn't work as well to protect her eye. She has to wear it for a week and I sure would like to make it as comfortable as possible for her. Is there a specific brand name you used, Karen, and where did you buy it?

I used the Cozy Cone. I liked it because even though it was soft, it is still structured (if that makes sense). Here is the link to it.

I bought it at a small, local pet supply store. They have a store locator on their website. Cassie was so much happier with this. I have loaned it out to tons of friends when their dogs have been spayed, neutered, or had surgery.
