Petey is approximately one and a half years old. The vet thinks he is a pit bull/shar pei mix. He was found at a corner tied to a pole and very thin. He has put on weight in his foster home and is a very sweet boy!
The vet diagnosed Petey with entropion, this is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is folded inward. The eyelashes irritate and scratch the surface of the eye leading to ulcers. At the direction of the vet we have tried multiple eye drops and ointments hoping to give him some relief and avoid surgery. Unfortunately all of the noninvasive treatments have not been effective for Petey. Petey is in need of surgery to correct the entropion. After surgery Petey is expected to lead a healthy, pain free life!
