    Chunk had Cherry eye in one eye, the gland was protruding and did not go back in. His other eye, on occasion will pop out and go back. First we had the one eye tacked by a vet and within 2 days the cherry eye came back, and with no guarantees we were out the $300, so then we had the one eye tacked by a canine Opthamologist he was expensive, at about $800 but he did a great job and Chunks eye is perfect. There are vets that have performed this surgery a number of times and I am sure are very good, but I recommend asking a lot of questions before you go with any vet. How many have they done, what breed of dogs, etc... As for Chunk's other eye, since it only pops out once in awhile and it does not stay out for an extended period of time we are not going to have that surgically tacked. (we will if it does stay out for quite awhile) Hope it all works out for you.

    Wow I didnt know how expensive it was to fix cherry eye. I am very lucky that we havent had any issues except ingrown eyelashes on her upper lid, no surgery required.

    Just a quick update on Truman's eye - well, I left over Christmas for nine days and Truman's eye only popped out once and went back in when he took a nap and haven't popped out since. So I think I'm going to wait it out a little bit and see how things go before I go any further since it could have been a temporary problem and he's still on his Invermectin because of his mange. Hopefully it stays in and he doesn't need any surgery - he's had enough of those already!

    YES YES I pray you don't need surgery for that! I totally know how you feel! Samson has had surgery THREE times! And I was a mess each time.

    I would have him checked. Avoiding dry eye is critical & if the gland is popping out it will need attention. Good luck...one of my girls had surgery on both eyes & all is well 5 years later.
