After taking my 5 1/2 month old lab to doggie play time last night I noticed that his tear gland was all swelled up. First thing this morning it was popped back in until he started rubbing his eye and caused it come back out. After taking him to the vet this morning they are telling me that he has a condition called Cherry Eye and several scratches on his cornea, because of the scratches they couldnt give any steroids till they heal. So now the dog wearing a cone and having ointment applied directly to the eye six times a day. After doing some research not really liking what im reading about this condition. Anyone else out there have a lab that has had this? Did it heal itself or did you have to have the surgery.
