    The permanent wink is fab description.

    Chops, meet Abbie. Abbie also had previous ulceration to her other eye and she is squinting at the camera but she didn't normally squint.

    Hello there Abbie girl! Arn't you just lovely!
    Thanks for that Anne ,it certainly dispells alot of the horrible thoughts that go with the words 'eye removal' . And Abbie was fine after surgery ? Did it take her long to recover?

    She wasn't with me when she had the eye removed, but came to me about 3 months or so later. I never had any problems with it.

    I am not sure how it was injured or why it was removed...it's a long story and not one that I can state here. Luckily, she retained sight in the other eye albeit with permanent cloudiness.

    Choppa, so sorry I missed this. I hope you're not worrying yourself too much.

    I have a pony with one eye. Long story but it was unsaveable and she was suffering. I had it surgically removed and she has never looked back. I can get a picture of her if you like, I'm so used to it I don't even notice.

    I know a dog is a little different, but honestly I think it's like losing a leg. Dogs deal with disability, they don't have the emotional complications that are inevitable for humans who lose an eye or a limb.

    To you all

    Oh sorry Chopper, I missed this thread too.

    I have no experience with this though. How is Loppy doing? Is the infection still present? Let us know how she goes

    There is evidence of ulcer on the cornea(sp?) and the infection travel down and out her nose in bad attacks of infection. We've been using the antibiotic cream as well as her tear drops but to be honest the infection doesn't seem to be going as quick as the other ones have.

    Vet said if we go eye removal they sew the eyelid shut? Is that correct? ( I hope so)
    Let me get this right. You are talking entropion for ongoing infection and eye ulcer? If the eye lids are not rolling in and damaging the cornea I can't imagine that an entropion won't be the appropriate treatment. Maybe I have read this wrong????? I will email you a pic of a pei minus an eye. He has actually lost the sight in his other as well, but is as happy as can be! Noah has damaged corneas due to the fact that he couldn't open his eyes at all when he was a pup (tacked at 8 weeks, but the damage was done). he only has 5 - 10% vision from both eyes and he has a wonderful time! Honestly, they cope much better than we do!!! I'm betting you really don't need this worry!!! Please be kind to yourself Renee. All will be well in the end

    Ah, well I am sorry to hear that Loppy's eye lids roll in, thats bad news, but pleased to hear that the infection seems to have halted, that's great news. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

    Can a normal entroption surgery be done? ie: cutting an ellipse from the eyelid and tacking the edge up and out of the eye's surface
