I was wondering if you ever had to deal with Cherry eye, what did you have done if anything? I know some have fooled with Beagles a long time and had this problem, I would like to hear your opinion!!!!

Seen something like this on the other board. What exactly is cherry eye? Oh, yeah, the vet on there highly recommends that you have it removed by a vet, and not try to cut it out with a knife and fish hook like this guy was wanting to try. Don't know that I really know what it is though. Enlighten me.

Ive only had it happen once and I took it to the vet and he cut it out. Ive heard of guys that cut em out themselves but Id be afraid to try it myself.

no way I would attempt to remove myself... deffinately a vet thing. Never seen it myself, only read and heard about it. I understand it to be hereditary...

If you cut it out yourself have one person to hold the dog while you pull it out with a fish hook and cut it off. The dog will do a lot of screaming be prepared for that.

Ouch. I think I'm gonna be sick.:yuck:
Awe now don't be such a wus. I was hoping someone might post a picture for me and dblevens. I haven't seen this before or if I have I didn't know what you called it. I know I would take it to the Vet for sure.

I had a bird dog watch a guy weld one time and the next morning the white part of his eyes had swelled outside of the socket and over most of the cornea. The Vet gave me some ointment and it cured up fast but it sure was ugly for a few days.

Had a dog with this once. Gave him a traqualizer I got from the vet, I think it was 50 cents for it and my buddy came over and used a fish hook and a very very sharp pair of small scissors. He cut it and the dog didn't even flintch. Never came back and I just gave the dog amoxicillian for about three days to make sure of no infection. Of course he starilized the hook and the scissors first.

You would definitely know if you seen it. It looks like a cherry stuck to the dogs eye. One of mine had it and it cost me $200.00 to get it fixed at the vet. After discussing it with other people who had run into this I have come to the conclusion that I need to fing a new vet.

Can't make myself do it, I tried to get appointment to get it done this week was unable to, maybe next week . Does anyone's vet do it on the visit and send them home or do they keep them overnight?

They are easy to remove.. all you need is a scalpel, and forceps along with some salt. Easy as 1-2-3!

Pull with forceps, snip with scalpel and stuff cut with salt.....
