    Just got home from the vet. He definitely has cherry eye but there is too much infection to fix it right now. The vet said that he is afraid there might be and ulcer so he was hessitant to treat the infection with an antibiotic steroid eye ointment since the steroid is bad for the ulcer. Instead he gave me eye ointment to put on 2-3 times a day for 7 days.. "Neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment" he also gave us a rimadyl 25 mg half a tablet twice a day (steroid i believe to bring down the swelling of the eye). Next monday we have a check up, if the infection is gone we will proceed with the cherry eye surgery, if not we go back again on Thursday to try and do the surgery. Hopefully the ointment helps!

    OMG I am so sorry this happened at such a young age. Poor sweet Bacon. Did they give you a cone for him to wear so he doesn't scratch or injure his eye further?

    no they didnt give us a cone, i think it was because he wasnt really scratching it or rubbing it when we were there.. i thought about it when i got home and he started to try and use his paw to scratch the ointment off. if he keeps rubbing ill give them a call. thanks for the well wishes!

    Wow! Yikes! Owie! I've never seen cherry eye like this before, but then again, I've never seen an infected cherry eye. I hope the eye ointment and steriod work quickly. Give Bacon loves from us!

    Well I have good news!!
    Bacon's eye doesn't seem to look infected anymore, the medicine really worked quickly! Also the swelling of his Cherry eye has gone down a ton! It doesn't seem to be bothering him anymore either which is great because it was so hard to watch him in pain. The only thing were having trouble with is actually putting the ointment in his eye.. I have deemed that Kyles job, Bacon behaves better for him

    I'm going to make sure and take some pictures tomorrow, and ill post them up here.

    Glad to hear things are going better!! Poor puppy! The rimadyl is actually for pain, so that probably helped him out a ton!
