Awww Thanks so much for asking! Buster developed Cherry Eye last Friday. It developed literally overnight and I took him to the vet. . The vet tried to pop it back which works sometimes. I got some antibiotics and anti bacterial medicines to prevent any infection from developing and hoped it might go back on it own ( but it rarely does) - by Sunday it was even worse. ( lucky my vet clinic is open 7 days a week until midnight- so no extra fee for off hours) It looked so awful.
Monday morning 7:30 am he went in for emergency surgery. They stitched his 3rd membrane to the ligament on the orbital bone. It is the most conservative treatment. If it works we won't have to remove the membrane which I hope is the case. The poor little mutt looks so sorrowful with his swollen eye and his "cone of shame". He is so little he scoops up the snow when he tries to walk and crashes into the steps with the tip of his cone as he tries to get up the deck stairs. Oh and did I mention that I had to drive through a blizzard Monday morning to get him to surgery? We just got another 10-15 cm of snow Monday. Apparently the coldest March and now April in the last 100 years or so since they started keeping records. I think the universe is conspiring to get Kim and I out of Winnipeg. I was so stressed my back was aching. Never felt that before and I don't much like feeling this way. I think I was so worried about Buster that I forgot to breathe The vet said the surgery went well and it looks like it might be OK. Of course when it happens in one eye it usually also happens in the other eye a. Hoping for the best.
He looks good except for swelling. Peeing and pooping and eating up a storm. Hardest part is trying to keep him from torturing Miss Tallulah and playing tug with her. Doing a lot of quiet crate time with a banana stuffed kong.
