Up until recently Frankie had a long floppy topknot, about a week ago I noticed that she had a weepy eye, there was no sign of any infection so I came to the conclusion that she must be getting hair in her eyes therefore I cut her topknot back. After 48hrs I decided that it had not improved so had a much closer examination of it which revealed that she has developed a condition known as entropion. This is where the eyelid roll inwards and causes irritation to the lense, we think that because she doesn't use the muscles in her eyes nearly as much as a sighted dog everything has relaxed, causing her eyes to take on the appearance of being slightly sunk. Unfortunately this will require surgical correction and she is booked in on Monday to decide on and undertake the appropriate course of action.
Monday evening and Frankie is home. She has had corrective surgery and although she is feeling very sorry for herself, wearing a lampshade, the surgery went well and hopefully she will be back to her usual lively self in the next few days. At the moment all she wants is cuddles, suits me as she is lovely and warm!
