Clients value their pets’ appearance . shouldn’t their veterinarian? The surgical enucle- ation of a pet’s eye is a disheartening procedure. The pet owner is often more traumatized than the pet itself. Part of the surpeon’s responsibility is creating the best possible post operative appear- ance. The most common type of procedure is the transpalpebral approach. This technique requires the placement of an orbital implant to look cosmetically pleasing. With no implant, there will be a marked indentation as the potentially vacant space con- tracts.
