    Default Finn has cherry eye :(

    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

    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!

    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 ?

    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.
