Our 9 month old EBD Bentley started showing signs of a cherry eye in his right eye! The vet gave us drops to use once a day and said it should keep the inflammation down...it pops up and sometimes goes away on its own and other times we have to gently push it back in! This started about three weeks ago and it was happening every day to two days now it's all the time! What would be y'all's recommendations for my next step for this, or is it time for surgery?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Our younger bully, Trigger, had cherry eye in both eyes. We did get them done. He was about 6 months old at the time. One popped one day, then the other one two days later. They would not go back in, or down, after a few vet visits and eye meds it was decided to have surgery. They did both eyes at same time. If you do surgery. .. Watch the cone!! I had bruises all over the back of my legs where he would ram me with the cone to try to knock it off. he did go through 2 cones. Eyes are bloody and weepy and I cringed when I put meds on in fear of hurting him. The pain meds worked well and he slept a lot. There were a few times during healing period I questioned the decision, but I really am so glad we did it. He is now 1 yr and eyes look great. ! !
Blue first got it at 4-5 months. We got them tacked once the second one came out a few months later. No issues, and his eyes look great.
First he got it in one eye when he was about 4 or 5 months old, and we would just massage it back in.
Then a few months later, he got it in his second eye.
That was when we decided to have the procedure. They tacked both eyes at the same time. We haven't had any issues since.
I am sorry, but i don't have experience with this. However, from what I have learned from the wonderful people here who have dealt with it is that if is is coming out all the time then you are pretty much to the point to where surgery is necessary.
Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
It should not effect his eyesight, it is more of a cosmetic issue than a health issue. Some people decide not to have them repaired as long as they don't get infected or cause any health issues.
I would wait, at least a little while, to see if the other eye also does it, to avoid having two surgeries.

I do believe that's what I'm going to do! Just so he won't have to go under two different times. It actually pops in and out and it's only in one eye. I put drops in them everyday to keep it moist and from drying out! Thank you so much for the help!
I waited for Gracie and the other eye did also get cherry eye. She will now have both done when she gets fixed. She is 8 months old now. Was supposed to be fixed about a month ago but went into heat. Fingers crossed she does well with surgery. Im a little scared.
