Long story short:

Yorkie, 4 years old.

Tried cyclosporine and tacrolimus on seperate and in conjunction. Minimal improvement in the affected eye.
Dog is now mainly on Genteal eye drops, but vet placed her back on dual cyclosporine and tacrolimus, I think to buy time, which is fine by me.
I like the vet over the eye specialist because she actually explained so much to me. The eye specialist didn't.
Found out that even though my baby's still active and spunky, she's in pain, but due to her having a pack mentality, she won't display her weakness.

I am feeling sad.

I've researched the duct surgery online and I am not convinced it will be that beneficial, especially since the vet says her eye is very damaged. The point of the surgery would be for her to have 'tears of saliva' but if her eye is severly damaged and the salive won't repair it, why have it at all?

I am thinking about anucleation of her eye

Any thoughts? Anyone been through this?

My baby's such a trooper. I had no idea she was in pain.
