Cocoa’s eyelid surgery

Cocoa the 2 month old shar pei puppy came in to see Southam vet Mark recently.

He had a runny eye which Mark could tell was caused by the skin of his eyelid rubbing on the surface of his eye. This is a condition called entropion.

To prevent serious damage to the surface of Cocoa’s eye, Mark operated to place some stitches above each eye to pull the skin back and stop the constant rubbing.

Cocoa recovered really well and was soon enjoying lots of cuddles after his anaesthetic. We will have to wait to see if he grows in to his skin or if he will need further treatment in the future but for now he is no longer in pain and is enjoying life as a happy, bouncy puppy.
