    Got a question for you all. If you have a buck with inverted eyelids does he need to be wethered? Or can you keep him a buck and just see if he passes the trait on and if so then either wether him or whatever?

    Hmmm...I'm not sure if "Entropian Lids" are genetic or not.

    That is a great question...not sure if it's genetic or breed specific. I bet it can be just as painful for any animal though. We ended up paying $800 for an eyelift for our English Bulldog who had Entropian. It was very painful and she had eye infections twice before we had the surgery done. She's a much happier puppy now.

    I don't think they are in goats; I only say that because we've only had a few kids that had it, and it didn't really seem relating to genetics.....mostly kids who came out of harder or messier births seemed to have entropians though.
