For cherry eye? Removed or tucked in?


For cherry eye? Removed or tucked in? At a standstill as to what to do on the 2nd cherry eye. The 1st one we had removed. But I'm worried about down the road. 

 

Hi,  I would definitely advise replacement of the prolapsed gland rather than its removal, which can result in a ‘dry eye’ problem later on in life. The procedure is fiddly but in most cases is very successful. If your vet is unsure of the procedure to use, I would advise referral to a specialist.
