View Full Version : Finn has cherry eye :(

12th June 2007, 10:22 AM
I have just come back from the vets this morning, finn had a little bulge in the corner of his eye about two weeks ago for a couple of hours then it went away anyway yesterday afternoon it came back so we went straight to the vet with him this morning, he is going to have an operation in the morning to fix it he will also be neutered at the same time as i dont want him to be but to sleep again in a few months.:(

I am going to be up the walls tomorrow so wish us both luck

I have never had a dog neutered before so any advice would be great :)

Niamh, sorry to hear that finn has cherry eye, neutering is really straight forward as i had a dog a few yrs back and she was neutered, give finn a big kiss and hug for me!!

Finn might be a bit young to be neutured... from what I can remember about when you got him. There's a lot of discussion on this issue but most would reccomend male cavs to be neutered around 8 months- 1 year.

Other than that, best wishes to little Finn and a speedy recovery please! :flwr:

Chester was neutered a couple of weeks ago..... along with 2 baby teeth removed, anal sacs emptied & micro chipped!

The day of the operation he was really really sleepy. The next day, a little dopey and then by the third day back to normal. It is a much easier operation for a boy & the actual wound is not even an inch long.

Just remember it all gets a little swollen & looks like they are still there for a while. Now, 2 weeks later, the swelling is completely gone & the sac is already starting to shrivel up.

It's amazing how quickly they get over things.

Hi I did think it was six months before they could be neutered, I spoke to the vet about it, finn is just over five months he said it was fine. I just don't want him going thought it again. I would love to now what you all think.

Do you think he is too young ?

12th June 2007, 12:28 PM
I got my boys neutured at 6 months....brilliant time in my opinion...my vet said anytime over 5 months in ok but best to wait till theyre 6 months.

12th June 2007, 12:29 PM
Oh and i forgot...good luck!:)

12th June 2007, 02:47 PM
Hi nisha I agree its best to wait till he's six months but I don't want to put him though another operation so soon so I thinks would be better all done at the same time. :)

Good luck Finn.

Will be thinking about you tomorrow Niamh. The poor baby. He'll be fine though. Better to get the eye sorted asap and why put him through this ordeal twice.
The vet knows best.

Poor Finn! he will be fine though and you'll know his eye is taken care of.

For spays/neuters, lots of us use a babygro with a hole vut for the tail rather than those horrible platic collars on them. You can unsna and roll up when they go out for pottying. :) And they look very cute in the babygro! I just got a couple from a 2nd hand shop and keep them on hand for this use.

Aww little Finn, he'll be just fine. It is good to have both the cherry eye repair & the neutering done together as then it will be all over & done with.

Can't wait to see stephens face when he sees him in the baby grows. He'll think you've gone completely mad.
Call over on Friday evening with him if you're free, or else i'll pop over on Sunday.
Keep us posted.

Niamh, Delighted to hear that he has bounced back. He looks so cute in the babygro!

18th June 2007, 05:38 PM
Hi just letting you know finn is back to himself, all the redness has gone from his eye. His stitches are coming out on saturday.:D

He's been so good :D

18th June 2007, 09:33 PM
Oh, what a sweet little face Finn has. Definitely sad enough to get chicken. :D So glad to hear he is feeling better.

Molly was spayed on Thursday last week and she was sooooo out of it that night, but she was pretty much back to her old self again on Friday... on Saturday you'd never know what happened except for the scar and shaved tummy.

I'm not a very good mommy though, she's been jumping and running since Friday. She's not supposed to do that for a week, but how do you stop them!?

And, no cone. The vet said she wouldn't lick at it and she hasn't. I don't think she can reach it...? Guess it's different for girls. ;)


18th June 2007, 09:44 PM
Don't know how I've missed this thread! :oops: Sorry to hear finn had to have a "double" surgery but at least it is all over and done with now, he looks very sweet in his babygro too! :lotsaluv: Also glad to hear that Finn has "bounced" back from his operation!! :hug: for you Finn!!

19th June 2007, 01:36 AM
I am pleased to hear the Finn is doing well and that his surgery is now behind him.

20th June 2007, 08:21 AM
oh yay! that's great tha Finn is doing so well!!!!:D
