Eyelid Protrusion ('Cherry Eye') in Dogs
Treatment often includes surgical replacement of the gland in the dog's eye, or removal of the entire gland if the condition is severe. Conversely, if medications are recommended, they are typically topical anti-inflammatory drugs that are effective in reducing swelling.
