    If he did swallow something that he's having troubles passing an Xray will more than likely show that (but not always!!!).

    @2BullyMama who was it who's bully was doing this and ended up swallowing his daughter's bra? The xray showed it buy only the metal clasp.

    The gal that cuts my hair, her weiner dog had over 20+ hair ties that he had swallowed for who know how long that were her daughter's.

    An xray for Coop is now in order.

    I agree, trying antibiotic eye ointment first, or having the eyes tacked would be less expensive, often times the entropion is caused by something else, such as an allergy or eye infection. Every other appt Jesse had as a young pup they said she did, she didn't, she did, she didn't. I finally found it was the food, (I was feeding Iams back then ), and she has never had anything since. Both Tidus's eyes had it when he had an ulcer issue, and they sucked the $$$$ right out of my trying to "Avoid Surgery". Heck as much as I spent "Avoiding surgery" I could have given him a facelift! I am still mad about that!

    Just be careful that they do not do unnecessary things, many vets see a bulldog and think "Cha Ching!"

    OMG what happened to Coop!! I'm so sorry he isn't feeling well

    First of all, if it is acid reflux they will probably tell you to give him Pepcid every day. I have zero experience with eye problems but as others have said, it's expensive but can be dealt with. And if he's swallowed something they (depending on what it is) they will either give him something to help it pass or they will try to pull it out right there while he is sedated. Sometimes it requires surgery but lets not think about that just yet

    Stay positive. I'm glad you found a vet that you like. I think the right doctors make all the difference. I'm praying for you 2.

    Agree with this as well. I also remember @BabyDuke was it who swallowed a head of a toy and had tons of troubles during the food switch?

    Also Jesse is my sock/blanket/rug/towel eater, I have found towels that were torn apart by her a month prior and she vomited them up. After she eats a sock (and I catch her) I will give her some peroxide to help her get it out, sometimes it does not come. So I watch her for a few days, and she will eat/vomit/eat/vomit/eat/vomit and I take her to the vet. They do an x ray, shows nothing.

    About a month later I go outside and spot purple in my desert. I go over to it and it is the LARGEST piece of purple blanket I had thrown away that she chewed up forever ago!


    Tidus ate a head off a very small toy, saw him do it too, thought it may have been small enough to pass. Well three weeks later he it up! Still in the same shape as it went down too!

    Also..@Jack Daniels ate a training bra and had big issues! My daughters Golden Retriever has acid reflux. Now his is usually stomache bile when he .. How she dealt with is..he gets a rice cake right before bedtime..works like a charm.
    poor Coop! I'm glad you found a vet you like..that's so important.

Maybe the yogurt some cant handle dairy.

    The recovery from the entropian is pretty easy.


    Hope Cooper gets better fast..
    I am going to mention allergy test tomorrow. I was thinking of it today but when he was rambling my mind went blank I know me not talking lol. But he is thinking more acid reflex because of their body the way it is formed. And the fact he is throing up in the morning. He said he is eating the grass trying to make himself throw up cause the acid in his tummy must be pretty bad. I guess we will see what the blood test says.

    He himself even told me that English Bulldogs are not like any other breed of dog, they truly are a breed amongst themselves. That made me happy. He was very good with Coop too. The other vet never even looked at his eye the way he did. And you are right that is what he said it was. He said a name with a "d" to just can't remember it!

I am a little concern still that he may have swallowed something that he can't pass. Watson swallowed a bunch of bedding material yesterday and threw up all over the bed this morning and it was a gigantic matted blob of bedding material. I am watching him closely too. He seems to be normal. No vomiting since this morning.
    Yeah that is why he wants to do more xrays. He said he doesn't trust the other vets and wanted to do it his way. He was asking if Cooper is one to eat anything and random things...but he is not a chewer and doesn't eat everything he sees. Now Gracie does but not Coop!
