    Default Latest on Chunk's Entropion Surgery

    Hello everyone! We've been MIA for over a week because of friggin' Verizon (I hate them with every fiber of my being and if I had a choice would not give them my hard earned money!!! But that's for another forum. )

    Anyway, Chunk had his follow-up appointment with Dr. Clinton on Thursday and got a GREAT report. Everything is healing well and I'm doing great with not cleaning the area (sound crazy doesn't it?! So hard not to do extra cleaning on a bully but cleaning would take away the natural healing.). His eyes were still producing mucous so we now have eye drops called cyclosporine to use twice a day until the bottle is gone (about 4-5 weeks). At that point, we hope that after a few weeks off of them he's still good and then he is healed! If not, he could need the drops forever but that's ok too. The craziest thing he told me about these drops - they can possibly clear up the bumps under his chin! Apparently, whatever causes the mucous, sometimes also causes skin irritations and interdigital cysts!!! I was in awe.

    I'm so so so happy we had this done despite all the bumps in the road. Chunk is looking great and definitely FEELING great considering he's running around like a puppy!

    Hope everyone is well ... I'm trying to catch up on all the posts and see what is going on with everyone!

    "Hey everybody! Thanks for all your well wishes, they sure helped!!!"

    My Lola had it done last Feb. she's so much happier since then, the only thing was that I had to pay an extra 70$ to get the stiches out she had to be sedated. I strongly recommend this procedure we're super happy with the outcome

    Oh my Chunk you are soooo adorable! Glad it is all going well so far . I will be sure to ask the vet about those drops because Tidus still gets eye boogers even though his eye is doing well. Thank you for the update!

    What a beautiful mug on Chunk. Well my Wilson had that entropion surgery last year. All went well but he will always need the cyclosporin drops as his eyes tend to dry and get gummy. He has a tendency to develop an eye ulcer on one eye as well. Cyclosporin has the consistency of vegetable oil so it keeps the eyes nice and moist.
