Vet Diary - Duke's Dilemma
When the gorgeous Labradoodle came into our centre as a stray, he had so much hair over his eyes that you could hardly see them at all. However, peering past the "curtain" to say hello, a strange pink swelling became evident in the corner of his eye.
This is a condition called "Cherry Eye" where the gland that produces most of the tears for that eye actually prolapses (pops out) and can easily become damaged or infected. Thankfully in this case our vet Allison was able to successfully replace the gland, ensuring that his tear production keeps his eye moist and hopefully avoids further problems in the future.
Here at Stray Aid, we really never know what is going to come to our kennels next! Thankfully with our veterinary team in place we really can deal with most things. Please visit the Support Us page of our website for ways to support the work we do.
