Older dogs don't provoke the same love and care from the owner, unlike puppies and kittens.

It is just a fact of life.

Be Kind To Older Pets

Meibomium gland tumours of the eyelids are quite common in older dogs.  Consult your vet when your pet has eye tumours as small ones are easier to excise and much cheaper too!

The dog survives the anaesthesia and does not suffer from rubbing and eye tearing after the operation. I am happy for the dog as he can live the last 3-5 years of his life free from eyelid pain. So is the owner as she does not need to clean the left eye anymore.

In general, I note that the younger generation of Singaporeans are much more kinder to the old pets than my baby-boomer generation.
