    Default Cherry Eye Recovery Redness

    Hello everyone,

    We have had Naya for about 7 weeks now. A couple days before we picked her up from the breeder, she got cherry eye in one of her eyes. Both of her eyes were tacked by the breeder's vet. I read online that recovery could range from a week to few weeks, however, the redness was still around after that. A few weeks after the procedure, we went back to the vet for a checkup and he said everything was healing well though.

    Fast forward to today, and Naya's eye's are still red almost 2 months after the procedure. Our own vet said that the eyes are not infected and that she's hoping with more time, the redness will go away. She doesn't have much discharge except in the morning when she wakes up from sleeping. We use saline solution to flush it out.

    I've attached pics for reference.

    Has anybody had any experiences with cherry eye recovery and how long the redness went away for them? Or are Naya's eyes just too droopy, so the redness shows more?

    What a sweet baby..I have no experience with cherry eye but we've gone through several entropian surgeries. Has the vet checked for this or could it be allergy related.There are a lot of people on here who have dealt with cherry eye.

    When Blue had his done, they were red for a week, maybe two? Can't remember exactly but I don't remember thinking it was anything odd.

    What you're seeing can also be caused by allergies. Any dust, or pollen might just be making them redder than normal right now.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I will have to ask my vet about entropian and maybe have Naya allergy tested then. I've been watching for signs of allergies, and I haven't noticed any excess paw licking, scratching, or severe skin redness. The drooping eyes was the only thing I've noticed, but thought that was from the cherry eye, but it's been so long. Almost 2 months since surgery. I've given her Benedryl from time to time, and it hasn't helped either. We flush her eyes daily with Saline as well, and feed her grain-free Fromm Beef Frittata (may switch to Pork and Peas to try out).

    I've attached some more recent pics which were taken on Saturday. Her red eyes are more noticeable here.

    Hi Nayabully,
    What has been the outcome on your adorable pup and his eyes? I am going thru the same with my 5 month old bully. He had cherry eye in one eye, but they advised me it would be best to tack both at once, since he was bound to get it in the other eye. It will be a month tomorrow and his eyes are still very red and watery. We go see vet again next week. We still administer his eye med daily. They don't appear infected or seem to be bothering him at all. They look a lot like your pups just a bit more red.
