    Default Cloudy Eyes

    Need some help guys. Tyson had his cherry eye tucks done early Feb and all seemed well. The day I was taking him for his post-op check his eyes looked all swollen and puffy like if he had cherry eye again. When I took him to our vet he showed me that the pockets/sutures were in place and the puffiness was most likely due to allergies. When he lifted the upper part of Ty's eye lids the tissue was also irritated. So he put him on Temaril twice a day for 5 days and then once a day for another week or so. He also had me buy Omega EPA to give him to build up his immunities. The meds seem to work but when they wear off it's right back again. His eyes have been tearing a lot and sometimes when he gets up you can see he struggles to open his eyes. Tonight I noticed a bit of cloudiness in his left eye. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow and have him look at it. Curious to see if anyone has had this issue or can tell me what this looks like. I noticed at times not only is the eye tearing up but it seems as if they are sensitive and bother him.

    He did have drops for a while and when they were almost done we had the post-op recheck and then he was given the Temaril.

    I have some antibiotic ointment and put a little in the eye until tomorrow when we see the vet. Really freaked out because if you google "cloudy eye" so much stuff comes up.

    Hmmm… looks to me as if he may have an eye ulcer. Walter has distichia (inner eyelashes) that have caused an ulcer, and I have drops and ointment to give him until he has his surgery. You will need a vet to look at his eye to see if he has an ulcer… I'm sorry

    Ruthie has dry eye in her right eye and gets ulcers on her left and her's always are cloudy like that. I would get a dry eye test done just incase. If it's an ulcer, the vet will give you some antibiotic ointment until it clears up.

    I swear Ruthie and Molly are the same bulldog!

    Molly was also dx'd with dry eye after finding out she had ulcers, but in her case she showed no signs at all, no squinting or nothing, just one day her eyes looked cloudy to me......the ulcers did permanent damage and she needs drops daily. I wish I found out sooner so she didn't have to have permanent damage so now I tell anyone who has eye issues to not mess around, sooner they can be treated, the better.

    Keep us posted!

    His vet is out today and they asked if I wanted to see someone else but I opted to wait until tomorrow to see him. I will put more of the antibiotic ointment. I am praying that it's something that is treatable and manageable. Thank you all for chiming in and sharing. Praying for the best for all of our pups.

    Ok feeling a bit scared so I called and asked to see the other vet tonight. I am just wary of waiting.

    Harvey had an ulcer but was seen by the vet as soon as he started squinting fortunately. I did not notice any cloudiness in his eye, knock on wood.

    Just got back from the vet..the sutures have to come out. Although they are melt away and what is deemed the least reactive, Ty seems to be having issues with them. Normally they are gone within a month or so but for some dogs it can take longer. Once that is done he will be on an antibiotic drop or ointment for a while in addition to his handy dandy benadryls for his allergies. I felt so bad having to leave him.
