Your pet didn’t ask for the irritation of Entropion
– But you can help.
We price our entropion surgery competitively because we want to give every suffering pet a chance for a new life.
What is Entropion?
This is a condition where either the upper or lower eyelids (or both) roll inwards leading to the eyelashes rubbing on the cornea of the affected animal.
Who Does Entropion Affect?
Most commonly this condition is seen as rolling-in of the lateral (outer) eyelashes of the lower eyelid of breeds such Rottweilers, Mastiff breeds, Malamutes, and most commonly, Shar Pei. This type of entropion is also seen in old cats.
With Pugs we see entropion of the medial (inner or near the nose) area of the lower eyelids. In Shar Pei puppies, we see entropion of the upper eyelids. This is a special case as entropion of these upper eyelids self corrects as these puppies grow. This can often be managed with the use of anti-inflammatory/antibiotic eye ointments, but ccasionally requires the placement of sutures to hold the upper eyelids away from the cornea for a couple of months as the puppy grows.
Untreated Entropion Can Lead to Blindness
Regardless of the type of entropion, left untreated, this will eventually lead to scarring of the cornea and eventual partial or complete blindness, with the dog/cat suffering marked discomfort 24hrs per day, every day until treated. Affected animals usually present with wet “blinky” sore eyes.
Trust the Experts with over 500 procedures done
At SEAH, Dr Plummer has performed over 500 of these procedures over the past 15 yrs. We have had clients bring their pets from as far away in Victoria as Horsham and Bairnsdale and the Geelong area, and interstate from Brisbane and Adelaide, to have this procedure performed at SEAH.

We Care About Your Pet’s Safety and Comfort
Incisions are made along the length of the affected eyelid, to avoid an obvious “step” if the incision line is only made part-way along the whole length. Incisions are made within 2-3mm of the eyelid margin so it is difficult to see a scar long term.
We have also found that it is not necessary to shave any of the hair away from around the eyelids to perform this surgery. As a result, owners do not have to wait months and months for the hair to return around the surgical area, leading to a much more rapid/pleasing result to the eye.
Your Convenience is Our Pleasure
If you are unable to pick up/drop off your pet on the same day, we do not charge any extra fees for overnight care – this is a service we offer for our client’s convenience. You may also bring your pet in around lunch time and we can perform surgery and allow the pet to go home with you soon after –this is a service we offer for our client’s convenience as this means only one trip.
Please call our nursing team to arrange an appointment to have your pet’s eyes examined if you are concerned they may have this problem.
