Canine Cosmetic Surgery Prevents Blindness Increases Adoptablity

Face lifts for dogs aren’t at the top of the list for many, but in one case, the canine cosmetic surgery saved an abandoned dog’s eyesight and made him more likely to be adopted.

Roland, a shar pei, wound up in an Australian shelter after he, like many of his breed, was abandoned. The breed suffers from entropion. Shar pei wrinkles cause their eyelashes to turn inward and rub against their eyeballs causing pain and blindness. People often dump the dogs when they realize how expensive care can be.

Now that Roland has had a double eye lift and full face lift, he may be able to find a home.
