    wow.. I really feel for you.. try to relax ( thats the pot calling the kettle black ) and take one day at a time.. i think you should just wait to see what the vet says.. Duke had horrible entropian and distachis ( totally hacked spelling ) its when their lashes grow inward. he had both eyes done for $3000!!! yes you read it right BUT he did not have the symptoms you are describing... so just see what they say .. also there are many options before surgery has to be done.. please please update us..and its good to vent

    I also see an eye specialist with Lucy. She had a surgery for distichiasis (like Duke) that is a similar surgery (lid correction) to entropian. Now, to ease your mind--Lucy still has a slight entropian and an ectropian on each eye post surgery. We are keeping an eye on it and we will not move forward with surgical intervention unless she starts to have problems. As long as a dog isn't getting corneal abrasions or re occuring eye ulcers you don't always have to correct every entropian.

    Also--like others mentioned cost can range from hundreds to thousands depending who performs the surgery. We opted for the eye specailist to do it. I think it was around $1500 when it was all said and done. My vet probably could have does the same procedure for a few hundred. Once you get him evaluated you will have a baseline--then you an start working on a plan to get him healthy!

    Hang in there! You'll get this all sorted out!!

    Orion has been battling a problem with her right eye for several months. She was diagnosed with an ulcer so we medicated it and it went away. Then it came back. Dr took another look and discovered an eyelash that was scratching her eye. So he pulled it and we put her back on meds for the new ulcer. Today, I took her back in because she was starting to squint again. Turns out..eyelash again, but no ulcer. Dr said if this continues to happen with the eyelashes...they should probably do surgery. We are still giving her neo/poly/gent drops every day. Have them stain his eyes to make sure he doesn't have any ulcers. Poor baby.
    This is kinda bold, but did they give him to you or sell him to you?
    Best of luck to you. It's going to be hard for a few months, but in the end..Tyson is better off with you and I'm sure you will get him fixed up in no time. Another thought. Did they ask for any contact info from you? If I had to give up my baby..I'd be asking for facebook info, email info and pleading for updates and photos as often as possible.

    @Libra926 I paid a rehoming fee. It was only 150 dollars. They wanted to make sure we wouldn't sell or dump him. They do have all of my contact info. I talked with them today after the vet. The seemed genuinely concerned and felt terrible. I don't know if they are just not knowledgeable about bullies, had a not so great vet, or are just b.s.ing me. I don't really care either way. HE is mine now and I will fix him=) It still irks me that they didn't tell me. It wouldn't have changed my mind.
    I hope everything works out for baby O . Poor girl. I wish you guys the best of luck with her.

    @dozersmama

    Any thoughts to changing your user name? I was thinking along the lines of Angel Baby. 1) Because baby Dozer is our angel and will always be missed. 2) you are an angel for saving baby Tyson. (they are never to young to be called a baby)
    I'm suggesting this because I know how much you hurt..as we all do for you and your angel baby, but because seeing Dozer's name is so sad. I may have just stepped over the line, and I'm sorry.

    @Libra926 No you didn't step over the line. I honestly hasn't really thought about it. I may do it ,not this second but, I'll consider it. Part of me doesn't want to let it go. I'll always be his mama. It may sound crazy but I still talk to him everyday and miss him like crazy.

    I hear you. You will never forget him..no one will. If it happened to one of my babies...I'd talk to them everyday also. Just a thought. Much love.
