Default Cherry Eye Questions


I have a 5.5 month old pure bred Harlequin Great Dane, Tank, and he has been
diagnosed by a vet as having Cherry Eye. Anyone have any personal
information on this problem?
I have read that there are basically 3 different options, 4 if you consider
doing nothing an option;
1. Remove the protruding tear duct gland using knife or laser - Serious
implications for dry eye later in life
2. Stitching the gland back in place - At best 55-60% effective - The knot
may cause rubbing and discomfort
3. Creating a pocket in the mucous membrane and stuffing the gland into
this pocket - 85-90% effective - Not sure of the implications

Any and all insights greatly appreciated. I also understand the longer we
wait the more damage this can cause.
