Our daughter's boyfriend has Hank's brother. They took him to the vet for what appears to be a sty. The vet gave them eye drops but if that doesn't clear it up he'll need surgery, I guess to lance/drain it.
Sorry I missed this before now. My Shelby had a couple of them that looked like a sty but were cysts and she had them surgerically removed twice. Hope his surgery turns out as good as Shelbys. You cant tell she ever had surgery on that one eyelid except when she is tired and one eye looks alittle smaller. But nothing any other time.
Bender has/had small eye growths around her eyes. We had them removed twice, the last time there was a fairly big (half a pea) sized one. Anyway the vet didn't take it all out and yup, grew back. She had a hard time with surgery last time and we almost lost her so I'm not about to take that chance again, plus where it is they would have to take part of her eyelid to remove it and she'd have more issues with that...
I figure that if she's still doing puppy tears at 12, she's fine with it.
