    It's def not your fault!! It is just irritated, he must have been pawing at it at some point. They really didn't seem worried about it and I'm sure the vet will have good news for me tomorrow. I always appreciate your feedback and input!

    Yeah Giradia is the latest thing for us now. I hope the medicine works, his tummy must be in shambles from it

    Some vets are now using laser to correct a cherry eye. I've heard good results, but have not had to have it done on any of my bullies.

    Lola had cherry eye in both eyes. Her vet suggested the "pocket technique", which not only failed TWICE but also made her very sick from the anesthesia. We then got a referral to an eye specialist, and had the tucking done. So far, so good, she wasnt as sick as before although she has some scar tissue from the other two failed procedures.

    My point here is, please, avoid the pocket method. Im still very frustrated that she had to go through all that for no reason.
    I dont understand why the vets still do it with such a low success rate instead of referring to the specialist? Ugh.

    Poor girl ,,,, keep us posted and hopefully, it will heal itself so you do not have to have the surgery

    My dog gets it in one eye, but it always goes away after he falls asleep. Is this common, that it comes and goes? Or does it usually stick around longer?

    Yes that can be common, especially in a younger bully. Just keep an eye on it, and one day if it doesn't go back or it looks infected because you can see pus then you need to consult a vet.

    My Blossoms' Cherry Eye came out when she was 5 months old, I had read some books about bulldogs to learn about the breed before buying my babies, so I knew what it was. When I was at the vet for their needles, I mentioned it to her. I tried massaging it in and at first it went in , but as time went by, it kept popping back out, especially when she was playing or jumping. I just got bigger, so I decided when I had her spayed, I would fix her eye, so I wouldn't have to put her under anesthetic twice. When my pups were 7 months old, I had them both fixed, and when they spayed Blossom, they also fixed her cherry eye. I asked my vet how she fixed the eye, because I didn't want the lid removed, she told me she didn't do that procedure, and that she had been doing this for 26 years, and that she sewed it back in. She said she has a technique that she has perfected and she has a lot of success with it. I felt good and confident with her doing the surgery, so went ahead. She did a beautiful job, her eye is beautiful, no complications, or swelling. She had her surgery 3 weeks ago, and I brought her back 10 days later to take her stitches out from the spay operation, and for a follow up on her eye, she was very happy with the result, she has a cream for her eye, and we apply that twice a day. I take her back tomorrow for her last checkup on her eye. But I have bad news to tell the vet tomorrow, because last night when we came back for our long evening walk, and I took Blossoms collar off, I saw that her other eye also has cherry eye now. It wasn't there all day, and it wasn't there when we left for our walk, but it is quite big, and I will show it to my vet when I bring her back tomorrow. I guess we can try the massage and eye drops again, and see if it goes back in, I was able to gently massage it backin last night, and it stayed in, but this morning it was back out. We'll try for a month or two, and if its not successful then we'll have to fix her other eye. Poor baby
