    Default Surgery Time

    Well..... Harlea Bug is at it again. We noticed her squinting a bit out of the blue a few days ago so we got her in to the vet this morning and low and behold she has Distichiasis. The earliest appointment we could get her with the specialist for the surgical consult is next Monday, but in the mean time she will be getting drops in her eyes twice a day. According to her vet there were quite a few lashes in both eyes that they fell needs to be taken care of sooner rather than later so off we go.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    When you see the specialist, check if just plucking the lashes is an option. When Castor had ingrowing eye lashes, an eye vet plucked them with a pair of tweezers. Castor just sat there like an angel - it was amazing to watch and made a huge differencefor him. He ended up not doing surgery.

    These days he has dry eyes and needs daily eye drops, but the eye lashes problem has not come back.

    Castor sends his best wishes to Harlea!

    OH gosh... it seriously never ends!!! I agree about the plucking, I would do that if it's an option. Prayers for your sweet girl

    Sending prayer and good thoughts for Harlea. Maybe she can get by with just a "plucking".

    She sees the specialist on the 8th. I have to work so my wife is taking her but i will be sure she asks about plucking instead of the cryo surgery. I will keep everyone posted. I am surprised that this is an issue now as i would have thought we would have seen this several years ago.

    MINI had this done in June of 2019. She's fine now. Harlea should be just fine too. GL, Harlea!
