Does my dog's eye need to be removed because of lens puncture?
My cat scratched my dog in the eye this evening and we rushed her to the emergency vet, who referred us to an ophthalmologist. The cataract surgery to save her vision will cost us $5000, which we do not have. The only other option he has given us is removing the eye. But don't dogs in the wild get scratched all the time? Nobody is there removing their eyes in the wild. Would she not just form a cataract and go blind in the eye? While in an ideal world I'd save her vision, I don't want her to go without an eye, either. Is there a reason she must have the eye out?
the really ugly news about eye damage from a friend who's been in your shoes if you do NOT remove the eye the immune system will try to deal with the damaged eye making immunities to the eye proteins in the process.. Unfortunately they will not be limited to the injured eye- they can destroy the good one too... THat is a likely reason for the eye removal recommendations.
