    Hmmmm, what can you use as a cone option? We obviously don't want it to get irritated further.... Can you try to make something out of cardboard and duct tape as a temporary cone? Just thinking out loud.... never heard of one bleeding or pussing before. So sorry you are going through this!!!

    Dr Butchko is a great Bully Vet. Maybe you can stop him from irritating it further with some kind of protection..like desert sky suggested. If you have a petsmart near you..they do sell sofe cones..maybe tomorrow. Once my vet made a cone out of an Xray for our rabbit..so think outside the box and see what you might have to use temporarily. Don't panic...its kind of late now to get more people that have had this issue. I have read that Cherry eye looks much worse than it actually is. He might have scratched it and thats what is red and full of puss. Try and protect it and just plan on getting it fixed. You will need a cone anyway after surgery..take the one with you that you buy tomorrow. i am going to tag someone for tomorrow. @Davidh Good Luck..take a deep breath..he will be fine

    Oh no. I am not much help here really cuz I havent heard of this either. I agree he must have scratched it or infected it somehow. Usually cherry eye just sits there looking sad. Butchko is a good vet but I am sure there are good vets near you also, no? I am all for doing anything it takes to fix our babies but you should have a vet near you that you would trust for what ifs also. Doesnt help today so I am sorry. You really could make a cone out of anything. I just had Miilas eye done a few weeks ago and I have to say the reg cones and store bought cones dont hold up well anyhow. I have to use duct tape to keep mine on her so using it to make something for now shouldnt be too hard. I also have a soft cone which is made of like a soft cooler material. I wonder if you happen to have one if you could cut it open so it lays flat kinda and then make it from that? At least would give a barrier sort of.

    I just looked at our homepage where there is a list of recommended vets and this one is in Las Vegas. Might wanna make a note of it and give them a try if you need a good local vet.

    BuddyBoy1, to EBN.... sorry you are here under stressful circumstances but welcome none the less. Please keep us posted on his progress as that is how we all learn, by sharing info and experiences. When things settle down we'd all love to see pix of your baby and hear more about he and his family.

    oh my! I hope you have managed to calm down some Therre is nothing worse than not knowing what to do. It soinds like he has caught it and thats why its irritating him so much. keep it clean using cooled boiled water and cotton wool and han in there until you get to the vets. did you manage to make a cone? anything will do that'll stop him reaching his eye.
    hope all goes well at the vets, and to EBN

    OK. I'm a little late to the post, I'm sure you are heading to the vets by now. He must have scratched it on something and that's why it's bleeding. Hopefully you came up with something to make a cone out of by now. Please keep us posted on the vet visit and how he's doing. Plus welcome to the site also. My male bully's name is Buddy Boy also.
