    Todd,
    Mimi RIP had 4 or 5 eye surgeries. They took care of most of the the eye lashes. She had a lot. For a few years after that, I would check for them every few weeks and pluck them out myself. Eventually they stopped growing back. She would just sit there when I plucked them. I think they learn that it makes them more comfortable. Hopefully your specialist will get them all but if not taking care of a few yourself now and then might be an option vs more surgeries.

    Harlea saw the specialist last week and while she does have a bunch of lashes he said they were soft and wants to hold off on removing them for now. Either way we still have to put drops in her eyes twice a day now as her tear ducts are working as well as they should but she has stopped rubbing her face so we will see how it goes.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Sounds like good news and great that she doesn't rub her face. Could I ask what kinds of drops she's on? Castor gets cyclosporine drops twice a day.

    Good news for Harlea!
