Milo: Cancer inside the eye -eye was removed

Milo, a middle-aged Labrador had cancer inside his right eye. His eye was sore and would bleed inside. The decision was made to remove his eye so the cancer would not spread to other parts of his body and he would be more comfortable. Once the eye is removed, we stitch the skin together over the eye socket. A silicone ball can be placed in the eye socket under the skin, so a hollow does not occur. Milo’s owner was pleased with the result and Milo was happier without his sore eye.
