    Hi, it is best to tack them back in rather than remove the gland, as this can cause dry eye which would require eye drops for life. Our vet tacked the cherry eye gland back in, and we had excellent results.

    Blossoms cherry eye, before and after surgery:

    Wow that looks amazing! That's exactly why he said he didn't want to remove them, to prevent problems later! That is so good to know and see the before and after results! Thank you!

    You're very welcome, the recovery from cherry eye surgery is very quick and easy on them as well, the only thing that was hard after her surgery was trying to keep her quiet and not jumping off beds and the couch, but she was also spayed at the same time. The first couple of days she was a little groggy and slept a lot, due to the pain medication, she only had medication for 4 days, and she was peeing a lot more due to the extra IV fluids given during surgery and after surgery. We had to put a medicated clear cream in her eye, it kept the eye moist, and also had a antibiotic in it for preventative measures. She had the eye cream for 2 weeks after surgery. Blossom didn't have any complications, no infection, and no swelling. We didn't use a cone post surgery, as she didn't bother her spay incision site or try to touch or rub her eye. Every dog is different, and you can keep an eye on her, but if she tries to scratch, or rub her eye on the carpet or floor, she may need a cone. You can buy a soft cone from Petsmart or other pet supply store if she needs one, rather than use the big clunky plastic ones. The soft ones are more comfortable, but hopefully she won't need one.

    How is Bentley doing? It's always nerve racking when they have to be put under so everyone understands your concern! Hopefully he's doing well!

    Thanks to each of you for the love thoughts and prayers! I know it isn't over yet and the healing process has just begun but so far so good!

    His eyes look as if nothing was done to them and the incision area down below looks great! Hopefully no problems will arise and it will be smooth sailing for my handsome little man! Thanks again for all of the love, thoughts, and prayers! You guys are amazing!
