Cricket our Cane Corso pup developed Cherry Eye on Monday.
Two days prior to this her eyes were draining some I thought she had an allergy but that was only until she woke up with her eyes looking like this.
Two of Zelda’s pups have developed this disorder the other one Crickets sibling only has one eye so far and they prefer to do surgery when it’s both.
It looks terrible, her eyes are draining constantly and she can not see looking down very well. I took these pictures on Tuesday of this week. I have been using warm paper towels to wipe her eyes 4 – 5 times a day.
This is very common in the Mastiff breed, Cane Corso, or any dog with loose skin baggy eyes such as a basset hound. They cut and clip to remove the third eyelid that causes this.
A big thank you to Suburbia North Animal Hospital in Houston off FM 1960. She had her surgey on Friday. It was worth the hour drive to find someone who specializes in this.
Cricket is not a fan of strangers so she barked and slightly growled at these people in mask and gloves. She has a bark that would keep anyone from entering our house and that is a good thing.
So much for curbside pick up I ended up taking her into the vet and putting her in the kennel then I had to go in and get her. My mean puppy.
She whined all the way home feeling sorry for herself we are home now and shes under the desk which is her norm.
She will be 6 months on August 2nd and weighs in at 87#s she towers over Daisy and Zoee. She runs like a galloping horse she is very mighty just not very fast but she thinks she is.
Our poor little puppy looked so bad with her eyes like this.
Surgery went well and she does not have to wear a C Collar YES!
They said eat and drink slowly today due to the anesthesia.
I am enclosing pics of after surgery so you can see how much this was bothering her and how much better she looks. She has stitches in both eyes and they are swollen a little. The eyes are bleeding some but its a very vascular area so this is to be expected and should only last today..
Pet emergencys happen and the fur babies count on us to help them.
I am so thankful Cricket is better. I have had an issue with Rooster’s eyes for several years now. I just thought he had some kinda effect from sniffing and eating poison ivy. I guess I will have to seek professional help. 1st time in 60 years, other than vaccinations. I just don’t think he will be very cooperative with any other than me. He is a gentle giant to me, but not so with any others. His bark will make the average person do what’s right and fear crime. Then he is liable to drown you in slobber.
I sent you the information for the vet I used.
