    Just to let you all know that my beautiful boy Benson is going in for an operation on Thursday. He's having alot of trouble with his eye so the vets said the only long term solution is surgery. He suffers from Entropian and has already had both eyes operated on but unfortunately the right eye is still a mess so they are gonna re-do the op. So on Thursday please can you all send some healing thoughts and positive energy to Yorkshire so he gets through the op ok - THANKS:)

    Its the eyelids themselves that turn inwards so that the lashes are stuck to his eyeball which obviously causes alot of irritation and pain. He's already had it done before but they cant have taken enough tissue out cos there's a row of lashes causing the problems. Hopefully this'll be it for him and he'll be sorted once and for all - I'm just worried about the anaesthetic with him being such a big boy:(

    I had a Neopolitan mastiff that had to have an entropian, both eyes. It was a very quick op. Hope Bensons goes well, im sure it will as ours was very simple and straight forward.

    It's a hereditary condition Alan and dogs who have the problem should never be bred from - its a nasty condition that really makes the dog suffer:(
