View Full Version : New Here... My Ruby has Cherry Eye

14th April 2010, 10:59 PM
Hello and thank you to all of you who selfishly share your knowledge and experience so that we may all benefit... It takes a village!
My 1yo Ruby has been diagnosed with 'cherry eye' :( I had to take my 2 cavs to a new grromer last week (regular was out with broken hip). When they took my dogs into the back, my Oliver was hesitant and the groomer proceded to pull him along on the lead until I yelled to her to just pick him up, ugh! When I returned 2 hours later, Boomer greeted me looking fab and happy; Oliver cowered in the corner shaking like a leaf. I noticed a huge protrusion on his right eye. I threw a fit and demanded the resident vet have a look at it. She said the grooming experience could have in NO way caused a cherry eye , that is coincidental and probably heriditary :confused: ??? I guess I wonder if any of you wise cav owners have any experience with cherry eye, it's causes and treatment? My vet will examine him Monday, but I was hoping for some 'been there' info! I found out surgery is often an answer, but oh my, the cost! Hoping for any encouragement. Thank you, Pokey

This is not something I have experienced with any of my dogs, but there is usually someone on here that can help.

I hope it gets sorted soon
