Common Eyelid Disorders In Dogs
Common causes of pet eyelid disorders include growths, abnormal eyelash hairs, and confirmation problems where the eyelids roll in or out. Dogs have a third eyelid that holds a tear-producing gland which is usually invisible. In some dogs, the gland pops out and forms a cherry-colored growth in the inner corner of their eye causing irritation and a condition called Cherry Eye. The surgery used to reattach the gland to its normal location is simple and will ease your dog's discomfort.
Entropion is a condition where your dog's eyelids roll inward. The inward roll exposes the eye to rubbing from their fur and can result in pain, infections, and may even damage their cornea. Reconstructive surgery will realign the eyelid relieving your pet's irritation and discomfort. Conversely, Ectropion is when the eyelid turns out and is inverted causing eye irritations and infections. Surgical reconstruction will correct the inversion and improve your dog's vision and health.
Why Reconstructive Surgery Is Important
Your pet is a vibrant member of your family. Plastic surgery can improve your pet’s vision, reduce pain, and guard against eye infection. A consultation with one of our veterinarians is the best way to determine if your pet needs reconstructive surgery. It is critical to your pet's vision to discuss any issues that affect his eyes as soon as you notice something is wrong. Our vet will offer the best treatment options, which may include reconstructive surgery.
