Deshi went to the vet today. He has an entropin eyelid (turned in eyelid) on his left eye - his lower eyelid. He is had three sutures put in to try to correct the problem. The other option, surgery if necessary, is something that isn't performed till he is about 8 1/2 months old.
Sometimes they can grow out of it - when their head gets bigger. But, I thought I'd get the sutures put in because that might correct the problem. The vet is a bit pessimistic that the sutures will not cause the eyelid to be turned out permanently (like a normal eyelid). He has seen it happen before though. He said it couldn't hurt to get the sutures put in.
The cone will have to stay on between 14-21 days when he gets his stitches removed. I thinks I'll have them take his stitches out around 17-18 days. Tetsuya got in his face earlier - he didn't like that at all. He as well as Yukiko seemed very interested in his e-collar. I took a couple of pictures of him lying out in the sun with his cone on.
