our new addition is a golden cocker spaniel now names chance........ he is about 12 mth old......... sadly he was in a council pound and his seven days were up but a local rescue centre took him in and now he belongs to us...... :D

he has entropion which today has been operated on and also had inter-groinal nutering he looks in a very sorry state his eyes are all black and he has a sore rear end too, on the good side for him it should be the end to sore eyes and wont loose his sight now.

he is such a loving dog and is super friendly and we love him dearly........ :D

thankyou, he is a cracking dog ..... it would have been good to see his before and after pics as the vet seems to have done a brilliant job on his eyes the difference is amazing, after just 24hrs and better still, he can now see. His eyes were so bad that his eyes were shut most of the time and they must have hurt like crazy. Poor baby

Not as much as we love him........ lol.

anyhow today he had his 48hr check up and all is looking well though keeping him calm is proving very tricky, being a youngster he is so full of beans.... ;)

So cute! I just love the English Cockers! What a lucky boy. He definitely found the right home! I can tell he is much loved! :)

The Great Dane foster girl that we rescued in January when she was 7 weeks pregnant had entropian in both lower lids. She just turned 6 in June and had horrible infections in both eyes as well when we got her. She had surgery and it was very successful. Her eyes are not pretty, as she was left in such rough shape for so long, but she is comfortable now and that is the important part! One of her daughters also had entropian in both lower lids, but was surgically corrected early on when she was spayed and you can't even tell she had a problem. So I can definitely sympathize with you as to keeping a pup 'quiet' with sutures in the eyes and groin area. Not easy!! :? Hoping your boy heals up as well as my young girl, as he is still young yet. Either way, he will be so much more comfortable. After dealing with these girls and seeing first hand the discomfort that they went through, I don't knkow how anyone could leave them go...... Then again I don't know how people can do a lot of things and live with themselves..... :roll:

Congrats on your new boy! He's a doll! Wishing him a speedy recovery! :D Keep us updated!

i belive entropion is passed down in families........... :(

anyhow.... yes it was left untreated for just under 12 mths and his eyes were sore, how people can do this i will never know, and his inturned eyelids were on both eyes and as the vet put it really bad, however they look and must feel more comfortable now.... ;)

thanks for your kind comments

thankyou all,

seems chance also is suffering another eye problem where the eyelashes grow inside the eyelids, we wont know if the entropion surgery was a sucsess for a few weeks too

. So regarding his eyes we might have to see a eye specialist to see if they can lazer off the eyelashes, but im told that it does not always work. :roll: so we shall see the experts view.

If left it can cause great problems for his eyes so we have to do something to help our poor baby.

It also looks like the little man has deformed front legs from not being fed correctly from birth, though this is causing him no problems at the moment(thank gawd).

it makes me so upset and angry that people can be so irrisonsiable, bringing these dogs into this world with no thought buy MONEY then when things go wrong wont take responsibility and help the poor dogs and instead they dump them on the streets to fend for themselvs. Poor chance is the happiest friendliest dog i have ever met and was on death row and hiis seven days were up. Im told hes only 11 months old too.

sorry moan over. just worried for my baby.

I had a dog with the eyelashes growing on the inside.We saw a specialist based in Solihul.It's a difficult decision and I opted against surgery.She also had problems with her spine and the steroids she was on for that helped prevent inflamation in her eyes.It's a hard decision and there's no way of knowing if you've made the right one :|
