    Awwwa....mommy slept with baby making sure all will be ok. That is so cute. Reminds me of when I did that with my own kids. I would do it today but I would be thrown out of their houses. Hahaha. Well Good Job CP! Yes good point above let the water come in small quantities. Glad the cherry eye is going in on it's own. That's a good sign too. Cherry eye stays in when you massage it, how long does it stay in before it comes back out? Just curious...

    So far so good. He's holding everything down. He had 2 small portions of rice and has had water freely all morning. Praying that whatever was upsetting his belly has passed. Keeping him on bland today just in case. If he continues to do well, I'll add in a small amount of chicken and pumpkin later today.
    It's in pretty much all of the time now. It comes out if he's chewing on a toy, or if him and Penny start "ruff" housing. Kinda making me question what I should do NOW?!?

    But...you don't have to do anything now. This may take care of itself. The glands usually pop out when the blood pressure goes up. Keeping the bully calm will always help...and hopefully, it will eventually stay in.
    If it does not, you have plenty of time to think about it and get opinions from forum members, friends, neighbors, Vets...and then take the approach that will work best for you and LJ. I'm confident that your decision will be the correct one.

    Thank you! I have been thinking about just leaving it alone for a while. If it was staying out all of the time and I wasn't able to massage it back (as was the case before we decided to have it tacked) then I would definitely do something sooner rather than later. Hopefully I will be able to talk to the vet tomorrow and see what she says. If anything, maybe just hold off for a bit - but keep a repair in our back pocket if it does eventually just stay out. Things would be so much easier if they could just talk to us. Lol- these responsible decisions are stressful. Lol

    Interesting. I would wait too. Maybe and this is wishful thinking to keep LJ calm and if...iiiiif it's possible for a week or so that cherry eye might just not come out anymore. Will be hard to keep him calm as you have 2 dogs. But heh, you just might avoid another surgery especially since he just had one not too long ago. See what happens and how everything goes. Take a bit of time to decide unless the vet has a better solution which im sure she will tell you. If it was me for Nyala after having same cherry eye issue and need to have it redone, I would wait just a bit by calming her down, see how long it takes for it to pop back out or/and hopefully not. Also she was already under asthenia not to long ago I would wait..... But heh, that's me. See what your vet says take it from there.

    Update- so the vet called me earlier and said she would suggest a repair. If for whatever reason that repair failed, she would then send me to the eye specialist.
    In my opinion- if I were to do the repair and that failed, I want it removed. I don't want to continue putting him through all of this.
    She said it's not something that we have to do now. And if I wanted to wait it out to see how he does in the near future.
    Lately it's been in more than its been out. And if it come out, it's easy to hit massage in. BUT- that's still been everyday.

    Yup like 2BM said straight to the specialist see he/she says. I would jump the repair and go straight to the source. Take it from there.

    Yay she has a plan That would be a smart idea Corine cause a vet that would tell me...."For whatever the reason the repair don't work" after a 2nd time ONLY then you go see a specialist? Pfffft nope.
