Good call hazelpackrun. The deformation of the "T" cartilage can be a cause for eversion of the cherry eye and on rare occasion it can be a primary condition. It can be fixed at the same time as the cherry eye (actually if it is abnormal, it must be addressed to help prevent the cherry eye from reprolapse. Luckily it is a straight forward procedure usually. Many times there is not an additional charge. Nice to hear other people talking about the cartilage though - rare for people to have heard of it.
