Poor little piggy. Has to go through so much at an early age. Did they give a quote as to how much this surgery would cost?

About $210.

He's already got $104 in exams and such.

Erin: I just wanted to say that in talking with my Vet on the phone today he is telling me what I didn't really want to her -that evidently my little girl also has the inverted eyelashes problem. Talked about surgery, etc. But I won't be able to afford that. The mama was a rescue and we didn't know she was going to have pups when I got her.

Vet did tell me to keep putting med in eye so won't get scratched and also can use saline.

Where to go from here, not sure.........

Glad you are able to get surgery for your Julian

This pig is also a rescue, and I can't afford the surgery either. It will go on a credit card and I will end up paying more than what the surgery costs in intrest fee's. However, it is painful for him and surgery is the best option and the only solution for him to be able to be placed up for adoption.

Just think of what it feels like if you get the smallest piece of debris in your eye. Hurts, doesn't it?

Start saving your money.

Tede, that pig really needs surgery. It is extremely painful.

I suggest asking around to see if there are any reputable vets that are willing to do the surgery for a more reasonable rate. I see you're in WA, so the vets there are much cheaper than here in CA where I live.

Yes, Dr. Barb Deeb (her contact information is in the link provided above by dribble) is recommended, as well as:

Diane Mitchell, DVM, Sno-Wood Veterinary Hospital, Woodinville, WA (425) 483-5834 (Dr. Mitchell only practices on Mondays and one Saturday a month)

I've had good results with Dr. Skip Nelson at Exotic Bird and Pet Clinic http://www.exopet.com/ , he neutered a boar of mine.

Erin, any word on how Julian's surgery went?

Yeah, he's doing well.

Dr said that it was more like his eyelids were too big for his head. He may have to go in again for another surgery to take a wedge of skin out of the lid to tighten them up again.

Dribble, please update your link to the forums. It should be www.guinealynx.info/forums , not a string of numbers. Otherwise the link will be dead if/when we move again.

Erin,

Good to hear that little Julian is doing well. Is he home with you?

Yeah, he's here. I moved him out with his brother even though it's a few days shy of 3 weeks. Shelly has been nipping at them and I don't want her to get his eye. They both eat very well, I don't think it will harm them to be out a couple days early and I didn't want to seperate Julian by himself.

I was thinking of asking Ravenshade for her pokey stick but I thought it was too close to Christmas to do that (note, I would be the one to suffer for my rashness at punishing the innocent).

mom911 might be done with Jackie the Soul Eating Pig. The DNS is a *good thing*.

Julian's eyes look wonderful.

The cloud is gone from the right eye and is starting to disappear in the left.
