She's having an eye operation that will have her eye removed (enucleation). Everyone at Rolling Dog Ranch is upset.
We have finally come to the conclusion that enucleation is a better alternative for the animal. The procedure is simpler, the recovery is faster, and the degree of post-operative pain is significantly less than with the intraocular prosthetic. Most important, the post-op pain ends much sooner. There is also less risk of post-op complications; indeed, we almost lost Widget's prosthetic implant back in 2006, though quick intervention by Brenda saved the day.
