Concerned about her dog’s eye, Kisses’ mom called us asking for advice. She had what we originally thought was “cherry eye,” which appeared to be a pinkish blob in the corner of her eye. But after a visit to the vet, we learned that it was actually glaucoma. In an attempt to alleviate the pressure in her eye, Kisses underwent surgery and had her eye removed. Huge thank you to Dr. Ed Migneco at Hillside Animal Hospital for taking such good care of Kisses. She is now recovering with her mom, and easily adapting to life with one eye–more importantly, life with no pain in her eye!
