Hi I came home tonight and my English Bulldog's third eyelid was swollen. I am assuming it's Cherry eye, and will have it confirmed by my vet tomorrow. I've also emailed his breeder to ask her if she has any advice.
But I just wanted to know if any of you have had a dog with Cherry Eye. I know Bullies are prone to it....
Our bulldog, Ozzie, had it - very nasty looking stuff. We had the surgery done on both eyes and then we had to work hard at keeping his eyes clean as he no longer had tear ducts. Definitely, check it out with your vet and good luck.
Yes we have been through this along with a wonderful mentor we have for my sons Beagle venture.....we had his show girl done a year ago and the mentor has them done many times with his. Be sure to ask your vet to remove it , not just tuck it. Tucking it tends to cause more problems later down the line and often leads to it being removed anyway. Our girl was home that afternoon, and acting like nothing ever happened. You will need to put salve in the eye(s) for a week after surgery. Otherwise, very simple procedure.
