    Default Cherry eye surgery.... so sad.

    I am so sad for our dog Otto. Yesterday he had cherry eye tacking surgery. I wish we'd never ever done it. It's a day later but I can't tell you how incredibly swollen and droopy his eyes are. 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?

    Oh dear Alicia, my heart hurts for the pain & guilt you are feeling, so sad!

    I have no experience w/this but others here do and will advise you.

    Know I will begin praying for you and precious Otto, that he begins recovering
    immediately and without complications.

    Please be kind to your self, we are not the experts and so, can only do as they
    advise what is best for our bullies. Sending hugs of comfort & strength...

    RIP beloved boy.

    I had the same feelings. When we got Tubbs back from surgery I thought they did a hack job. It does get better I promise. No one warned me either that it looks like that so when I saw him I was ready to strangle the doctor with his leash!!!!

    Thank you so much Carol. Please direct your prayers only at Otto! He is in need of them. I'm just the jerk who got his eyes done thinking it would be better for him because he kept bumping his cherries on things and they were bleeding. Now, I'm not so sure at all.

    Thanks so much for sharing Tubbs story. I hope Otto recovers like Tubbs did. It looks so incredibly inflamed and awful. Huge. Like the eye is inside out. Plus he's only a pup. Not sure if I should have waited longer. He kept bumping his cherries on things outside, when he was playing, etc. and they would bleed. They were big too and he just wasn't himself. Now he's really out of sorts!

    I hope you never ever have to go through with it - for the sake of your bully & you! Thank you for the support.

    Hi Alicia, like everyone on here has already said, don't be so hard on yourself, he obviously needed the surgery, and it does get better. Don't worry it always looks worse before it gets better, I had both of Blossoms' cherry eyes repaired at 7 months old when I had her spayed, and she had swelling form her surgery as well, and her eye were red and watery, we had pain meds for a week, and antibiotic eye drops for her eye as well, which we used for a few weeks post surgery. Ottos eyes will heal and they will be beautiful. It just takes time to heal, sending love hugs, and prayers to you and Otto, and Bulldozer and Blossom send big slobbery kisses to him as well. Don't worry everything will heal.
