    It's all a personal decision btw love ur name (I'm Alicia too) when I talked to the vet he explained the gland is only responsible for 30% of tear production which swayed me more towards removal he also explained there is really no recovery with removal, no drops after, no stitches. I saw her right after the surgery (she had a lot of stuff done) there was no swelling redness nothing!!!!! I'm very happy with my decision

    My EB, Briley, had cherry eye. I knew this was very common, and there was a high chance of having the other side pop out as well. I wanted to wait a few weeks or so to see if the other eye developed the problem before doing anything, because it would be easier and safer to do it all in one procedure rather than 2 and my vet gave me eye drops to use in the meantime. A few weeks went by and the other eye never had any issues. I had the option of tacking or removal. I chose removal because it was a one time procedure and I didn't want to risk it coming back after tacking and going through it all over again. I didn't want him to be put under more than once because of their known issues with it, so I took the risk of dry eye and had it removed. This was about 3 months ago and I've had no signs of dry eye! And the surgery was only $175! Your quote seems AWFULLY high, I would maybe get another opinion/quote.
    Chances are, if it came back after being tacked once, it probably will again. Although, since it's a new technique it may not (I don't know what this approach entails)
    Goodluck with it all!

    Max had cherry eye in both eyes also. My vet recommended laser surgery. That was 5 years ago, I haven't had a problem since. I spent $300.00 an eye.

    Hi,

    My bully Bernice had them removed! They still look blood shot and one of them still is almost brownish! I took her into the vet and he said they are still fine and not to worry! I was expecting them to be white! Has anyone else had this problem, or should I be getting a second opinion from another vet? Any advice or knowing that this can happen would be helpful!

    Thanks!

    @tomolson24 Hi my bully had both his eyes tacked this past December and they are still bloodshot red and very glossy. His were done by an eye specialist at the University. He gets them checked monthly by his regular vet, the tack is holding and no sign of entropian or infection So pretty much she said that's how they will stay. They may clear up some as he gets bigger He was on medicated drops up until about a month ago. Med drops were not doing much to take the redness away, so we stopped using them. I have since started using regular eye drops, which helps but only for a short period of time. I put 2 drops in each eye and they clear up for about an hour. And I only use them when were going out, as people are always asking why his eyes are so red. Hope this helps.

    I am a new bully owner
    at 5 months my pup cherry eye popped out
    took to my VET (knows nothing) said needs surgery
    first I did research
    then found how to get cherry eye back in on YOUTUBE
    asked for lub ointment would not give to me told them where to go and changed VET

    Learned a big lesson
    NEVER NEVER BELEIVE A VET they are absolutely self serving and never give a s.......t about your dog but we need them for shots and medicine.
    saw different vet every time I went there and all they did was push their dog food....Hello ...my dog has cherry eye I don't want your crappy dog food

    in Canada we have medicare for people and our doctors are great because they charge what they can charge
    VETs on the other hand are vultures. (sorry maybe I found a good one now because she gave me an ointment for my puppy's eye

    Sorry back on topic
    I lube the eye 4 times a day and cherry not popped out since
    I massage it a bit with surgical glove after the ointment......
    reduced the stress and hoping the eyelid will get stronger as he grows and if it persist I will consider it at one year old when I have him spayed

    sharing my experience with you
    best of luck
    regards
    Lou
