    So sorry, you're going through this, maybe it still is just swelling, but take her back to the vet and have it checked to make sure. Hopefully her one eye didn't fail, and it will heal over time. Keep us posted.

    Oh NO... I'm so sorry!!! I don't have any experience w/cherry eye, I'm sure you are frustrated. Hopefully they can figure out what's going on w/her right eye. Keep us posted!!!

    The left eye looks a lot better to me, but is that the stitching in her right eye?!! Is that normal? I've never had to deal w/this... poor baby, hopefully this will work for her!!!

    Poor baby. It looks like the right eye might have failed. One of Brutus' eyes failed also. We had the lining removed from that one and thinned in the other. We tried hard not to have it removed but didn't have a choice. I hope she is better soon.

    Hi, I would take her back to the vet, and have her eyes checked. When Blossom had her cherry eyes repaired, our vet wanted to see her back 5 days after surgery for a post op checkup, she had been given enough antibiotic drops and a cream for her eye for the 5 days, and then after she checked her eye, she gave us more drops and cream to continue applying to her eye. You mentioned that your vet wanted to see her 2 weeks after her surgery? That seems like a long time to wait to check her eye. And since you have doubts regarding how it is healing, and you think one of her eyes may have lost the stitches, I would take her back to your vet just to have it checked to make sure everything is healing as it should, plus for your peace of mind. Please keep us updated. Sending lots of hugs and kisses to you and Lily.

    Aww so sorry, but that's not true. It's not something that can't be fixed, it will be okay.

    my only concern is that we have to put her through another op yet again she did done great after an op -first time i saw a dog so full of life after an anesthetic
    if i had a choice i would have them removed as they are responsible only fr 30% of tear production and not many dogs suffer from dry eye
    once i know something i will post an update thanks again EBN - what i would do without you lot

    hi guys i got an update - right eye failed , left one - vet isnt sure - it look kind of ok , but she said to give it time and wait few week to make sure thi will not pop out - we have some eye drops with steroids and antibiotics , and vet checked her eyes if she dont have any scratches or infections by putting some kind of orange "dye" in her eyes- its all ok - currently he looks like a traffic dog -red , with orange dye that turned green in places
    we will see a vet on the 6th of September and book another operation - let pray that we will be lucky this time
