    Default Lucy= entropion

    Went for a shot at the vet today and asked about Lucy's tear stains. He told me she has entropion in that eye and needs tacking sutures until she's old enough to get surgery. anyone on here had them tacked before? I hate to put it off and damage her eye but don't want to do something unnecessary

    I tagged a couple of members that had this done for their bully

    Did you get the full on surgery or the tacking sutures?

    Billy had eyelashes plucked we didn't need surgery. I know someone had their bullies eyes done but can't for the life of me think who.

    Gosh I don't know. We are holding off on entropion surgery b/c lupe's condition is "mild" and she isn't pawing at her eyes, no goop etc. tear stains we corrected with food changes. I just hate putting her through something unless its really warranted. if you are near a ompthamologist it might be worth a second opinion from a specialist, but I really don't know.

    I would try the plucking first to see how that goes.

    I asked our vet about just plucking them and he doesn't think it will work.

    Went and dropped off Lucy for tacking. Hopefully as she grows it will go away but my vet is pretty sure she will have to have surgery later on.
