Aweeee she will be just fine! I'll say a prayer for her and you!!! Bentley has had 2 surgeries on his leg and a tail removal, and I can honestly say I was completely broken hearted for all 3 of them! Now knowing I'll have to have the cherry eyes removed is just killing me...Definitely keep us posted on how she does!
Ftse had cherry eye when he was four months old and to start with we could massage it back but it eventually stayed out and we had to have it tacked back in at 5 months Ftse has been good ever since.

This is so crazy!! Saturday night as we were getting ready for bed I let Frankie out to potty and when he came back in I noticed an awful red bulge in the bottom corner of his left eye.... I googled it, unfortunately I don't have EBN on my phone so I couldn't get help from you pros out there, but it was cherry eye.. I could tell immediately... because it was so late we decided to go to bed, I gently massaged the eye.. it didn't seem to phase my lil' guy, because he started snoring half way through the massage!! LOL Anyway, I woke up a few hours later and to my astonishment, it was gone!! YAY!! It hasn't come back yet but I am so worried.. it looks like it hurts but according to the research I've done, it doesn't hurt unless it gets infected or irritated.. either way, I felt so bad for my poor Bully Baby! I am crossing EVERYTHING in hopes it doesn't return...
Diesel ( white ) side eye kept coming out daily, we had the operation and the vet have us 2 options
- cut a small pocket in diesels face, tuck the cherry under and restitch keeping the tear gland.
- just cut it out.
We took the cut and tuck option. If you cut it out you may risk dry eye in later years.
Now the other eye comes out once or twice a year ( usually when the wife has the heating set to high) I 5 second massage and it goes straight back in
Hopefully his other one won't...it's looks really bad though when it does come out, but doesn't seem to be bothering him especially with the drops
Hi, My female Blossom developed Cherry eye when she was 5 months old in the left eye. At first, I was able to massage it back in, but over time it would pop back out, especially after playing or running. We had her at the vets for her puppy needles, and we discussed options with her. Our vet doesn't remove the gland, she tucks it back in, and has been doing this surgery for over 20 years, she has her own technique that she said has a very high success rate. We opted to wait until we spayed her, and do both surgeries at the same time to avoid putting her under anesthetic twice. She had the surgeries at 7 months old, and did very well, and the vet did a beautiful job on her eye. She didn't even have swelling after the surgery. Unfortunately a week after her eye repair the other eye also developed cherry eye, which often happens, that the other eye will also develop cherry eye. We had the second operation to repair her right eye a month later, so ended up having to put her under a second time. She did well, and both her eyes are perfect today. No complications, or relapses. They were done 2 years ago now, and you would never know she had surgery on her eyes.
We used over the counter Refresh eye drops from the Drugstore, to keep her eye moisturizer until we did the surgery. The eye and the gland can become dry when it is exposed to the air for long periods of time, the drops keep the eye moist, and free of getting irritated. After her treatment, we had an antibiotic eye ointment that we put in her eye twice a day for two weeks.
