• Does cherry rye always need surgery?

    Hi Andrea, thanks for your question. I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this. Usually the best treatment for cherry eye is surgical repair. There can potentially be complications from not fixing it but these can depend on the individual pet. Your vet knows your pet and they can give you the best advice on if this needs surgical repair and the potential complications that will be specific to your pet.
