Now he's really out of sorts!
    Tubby's was done at 4 months. I hated putting him through the surgery but it broker my heart every time I looked at him. I just know Otto will make a full recovery. These bullies are incredibly resilient, must have something to do with their stubbornness

    My Voitto had his eye tucked at about 4-5 months, but it didn't look bad at all compered to the massive sherry he had. Otto too will look as handsome as ever after awhile! Didn't they give you anything to put in his eyes after the surgery. We had to put drops 3 times a day.

I went back this am as soon as the opened and the doc that did it wasn't in but they gave him a shot for the pain and some drops for inflammation. The next time I'm scheduled is tomorrow at 5:15 and I don't want to wait (but it seems she's only in during the afternoon). I can't begin to describe how AWFUL and RED and so so so swollen they look. It's as if they are inside out. This mornings doc said they are extra swollen and he has congunctivitis. I seriously feel like I butchered my dog. The vet has done these often and she has a ton of bulldog patients... that I've seen in the waiting room. I am so sad and depressed. Anyone ever deal w/ this?
    Brutus had cherry eye in both eyes. We tried to have them both tacked but it only worked in one eye. We had to had the lining removed in the other eye a few days after the initial surgery. It is a scary sight and sad to deal with. we had drops we had to put in the eyes twice a day and antibiotic ointment twice a day as well. The whole two surgeries in 1 1/2 wks was horrible but Brutus is doing great and he doesn't have eye issues anymore. Hang tough, it will get better and Otto will be much more comfortable soon.

    Bump to see how Otto is doing! Hope all is going well. I'm glad I came across this thread as Cinnamon will most likely have to go through this soon. She has a small cherry that pops out every so often. The vet is waiting to see if she will grow out of it. I hope she does.

    Cinnamon and Pepper both send loving licks!!!
