My bassett hound, Angel, had an enucleation (removal of the eye due to chronic glaucoma)at the end of January. She has since developed a cyst on the lid and the opthamologist wants to go back in and remove the cyst. They said it is rare that she developed a cyst after the surgery. I hate having to put Angel through anesthesia again, but it is the only way to remove the cysts. Has anyone been through this before? Any answers would be helpful! Thanks much!

The veterinarian said that the cyst was a complication from the surgery and that it needs to be removed because it could become absessed. He said it is a blood filled or fluid filled cyst from the surgery. I know she has a few other cysts on her body that are okay to stay. For some reason, they said if they drained it, that it would come back. Where is your dog's cyst located at on the eye?

Thank you very much for your answers. It does make me feel better that your bassett goes under anesthesia regularly due to teeth cleaning. Yes, our bassett's do have different eye problems. Thanks for your help though!
