    Ah, so sweet how Bailey came to welome her back home. Poor Zoey... fingers, toes and paws crossed all goes well.

    Tom, make sure Bailey doesn't touch Zoeys eye. She may try to lick it or even accidently paw it if they're playing.
    Watch them very closely these next two weeks. You don't want anything going wrong.


    I'd get a second opinion on this.
    I was told that removing the gland increases the chances of dry eye when the dog get older. This means daily drops for the rest of the pups life. Also, dry eye (lack of tears) is the most common cause of corneal ulcers. So I wouldn't be so quick to remove the gland. (Because I'm a crazy bullie mama, I got the opinion of my vet and two Ophthalmologists on removal vs tacking.)

    Just an FYI, tacking both eyes takes about 15 minutes.
    We had the procedure done a week before Tom did it for Zoey, and so far- so good.
    Thanks for the advice! I have done a lot of research on it and have spoken with a couple of different vets. We were ensured by one vet who has done hundreds of these surgeries (and did the c-section) that there is only a minimal amount of tear production that comes from that bottom gland. Also, when tacking it down, many times that duct no longer produces tears. Plus, you have IV sedation and it is very common that it will pop back out. The chances of the stitches scratching the eye, etc. makes for even more concern and chances of other issues. We definitely are not making a quick decision on this and we are definitely weighing the pros & cons of each option. We do not have any ophthalmologists anywhere near us and we do trust the advice from the vet who is doing the procedure. Dry eye is somewhat common either way; whether there has been a procedure done or not. This truly is a hard decision to make because, either way, the decision is going to affect them for the rest of their lives (as well as their families). Thank you again; you all are so helpful and I really am glad to have found a place to go to get such awesome support and advice!

    Excellent. As long as you're making an informed decision and you trust your vet that's all that matters.

    I'm one of those crazy people that analyzes everything (could be why I work in Compliance.. lol), then weighs the pros and cons.
    So it's always great to hear that others have done their research as well.

    Emma just got her 2 week cone of shame off from her Second cherry eye surgery. The first lasted about 3 weeks and came out. The breeder says just have it removed my vet and an ophthalmologist cringed when I told them that. So we opted to try the stitching again. Today has been two weeks. I don't see it but I attached the post op pic and a pic as of a few days ago.
