Just wondering how many bee’s out there have dogs who have had cherry eye? One of our 5 month old shar pei puppies has it in one of her eyes. It is going to cost between $500-$700 for surgery. Is this something that will reoccur once she has the surgery? Or if they get it in 1 eye are they likely to get it in the other? Any advice would be appreciated!!
Eva had a cherry eye and we saw the vet for it. They recommended leaving it until she was going to be spayed that way she would only be under once. It actually subsided with time. I’m not sure how usual that is. She is about 18 months old now and it has not returned. Did the vet recommend doing the surgery right now or waiting?
My doggy had cherry eye as a puppy. We waited until she was going to be spayed to have it done. It did come back however for our’s. She’s actually had it twice in each eye. However its been over 2 years and have not had it come back since.
The vet said he would like to do in now- but it is not an emergency. She isn’t in any pain, but left untreated could cause blindness and it also looks terrible. We are taking her to another place to be spayed and our vet knows this- so maybe that is why he didn’t suggest doing both surgeries at once. I really hope it does not come back after it’s fixed!! Here’s to wishful thinking!!!
