Found this: "Trichiasis, a very common lid abnormality, is defined as the misdirection of eyelashes toward the globe. The misdirected lashes may be diffuse across the entire lid or in a small segmental distribution. Trichiasis has numerous causes, and the strategies to correct this problem are dictated by the anatomic abnormality causing the lash misdirection.
Thanks for the reply's but I have actually done extensive research on it, as it is my puppy that has it. I was more interested in anyone who had Personal experience about these conditions. I am interested more in people who have actually had thier dog go through the Cryo procedure.
My Catahoula had this and we had to take her to a specialist for the cryo. She had it done on both eyes. You may have to repeat the procedure a couple of times up to 2yrs old. After that the hair quits growing. The dogs are sedated and there's no pain or discomfort. You just have to put some eye salve in the eyes so there's no infection. It was really expensive. This was 8 yrs. ago and it was $500 each time. It's probably more now.
Thanks for the response. Actually it is quite a bit cheaper now thank god. Regardless of price though it needs to be done. My bulldog needs it done in both eyes. I also realize that he will probably need multiple treatments. Being a bulldog I am mainly concerned with him having to be put under more than this first time. I have the utmost convidence in the specialist we are seeing for this but it still makes me wary that he will need to be put out multiple times in the coming years. If I may ask how many times did your dog need to go back for Cryo treatments? Thanks again.
