    I am not sure. i would think that it one is not visible the other shouldn't be either but I have no experience with cherry eye so i do not know for sure. Sending hugs and kisses to Lily for a speedy recovery.

    Hi, Blossom had surgery at 7 months to repair cherry eye in both eyes as well, and she had swelling, and we had to put drops in her eyes post surgical, but Her stitches weren't visible, so not sure if it is normal or not. When did lily have her surgery, has she had her 1 week follow up appointment yet? If the surgery was done recently, then I would call your vet, and just ask them if this is anything to worry about, and they can tell you if it is or not, and if it's not, then you can bring her in for them to take a look to see what's going on with the eye. Please keep us posted. Hoping its normal and nothing to worry about, and sending love hugs and prayers for Lily for a quick recovery.

    Our vet did a post op checkup 1 week after her surgery, to check Blossoms eyes, but if you are unsure, call your vet and just ask her if it is normal to see the stitches. It may just be the placement of the stitches, and since they are dissolvable stitches, they will disappear, so everything is probably fine, but it doesn't hurt to give the vet a call just to ask, and give yourself peace of mind.

    I'd say stitches came out. Looks like Daizy's when her stitches came out. You will definitely be seeing your vet today to get it restitched. Daizy has had entropian surgery twice now. She does not like to keep stitches in and licks them out. It looks like the stitches have come out. Did you tell the receptionist what is going on? At my vet they would tell me to bring her in even if my vet is not there so at least the tech can have a look at it.
