    Did Nyala have a problem with the stitch? If so did the vet do anything aside from the drops?

    No she didn't but he sure made it very clear for next 5 days if her eye gets foggy, squinting, leaking alot to bring her in immediately. Especially foggy.

    Sorry hon, I was out of town this weekend...

    Sounds like a trip to the vets is necessary... could be a stick is bothering him, or he scratched his eye as other have stated. Corneal tears are not bad IF you take them and get treated ASAP... they put dye in their eye to see how bad the scratch is, and then it's usually just drops to help it heal. Keep us posted!!!

    Hi guys, he's doing ok but his eye looks much more swollen he's got it closed right now I tried to get a picture but it's not a great one. Soo needless to say we have an appointment with the vet at 1:30. Your positive thoughts, advice and prayers are appreciated as always. Thanks for the continued support

    So sorry I am late on this-but would recommend the vet visit,as you have already made appt.! It sounds like he has scratched his eye,Best wishes for his healing,and he probably will need the cone for awhile. They can easily scratch their eye with dew claws,as they itch when they are healing.

    Oh no! My poor Murray, I have no experience with cherry eye specifically. I know that warm compresses with tea bags work well, I've done that with Tyson's just basic eye allergies. I hope he feels better soon!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Hi guys, just got home from the vet. Murray has a corneal ulcer, it is apparently unrelated to the cherry eye she looked and was able to see no problems with the placement of the suture from the cherry eye repair, so that's good. Unfortunately the vet that did Murray's surgery is on vacation this week so we had a different vet, but she was fine. They sent us home with a new soft collar, apparently he can still bump his eye into things with the blow up one pain meds, antibiotic and tobramycin drops and we go for a follow up on Saturday. She said if it looks worse to bring him back right away but I am hopeful we will be good with just the follow up on Saturday and would appreciate your thoughts and prayers that he heals quickly. The vet said hopefully he should be to the point where he stops squinting around Wednesday. If anyone has experience with corneal ulcers I would love to talk with you more about it. Thanks so much
