The Puggle’s Story

For being only 6 months old, Rocco had been through quite a bit.   The little guy came to us suffering from “cherry eye.”

Officially known as Nictitans Gland Prolapse, this conditions effects a dog’s third eyelid (dogs have 3; people, 2). Their tearglands somehow get out of position, causing severe redness, swelling, and irritation. It is unknown why this happens, but is more often seen in Beagles, Boston Terriers, Bulldogs, and a few other breeds.  Left untreated, painful eye ulcers may develop and surgery is required to reposition the tear glands.
We couldn’t let Rocco wait for long to get his surgery and we are happy to report that Rocco had successful surgery on both of his eyes on January 9th!
He had a quick recovery and his winning personality had him adopted within a week.   Rocco is living with a great guy and another Puggle in West Hollywood.
