    Default help, motley has a cherry eye

    Sorry, I haven't been on in a whil, moving and the holidays, whew! We are in San Antonio now and apparently no vet I can find will remove the cherry eye, a vet did tell me there are some old school vets (but couldn't recommend any) that do but I would have to do research on my own. Its like looking for a needle in a haystack. We are pretty sure removal is the best option after the research we have done but could use any input or references from you guys. thanks

    Hopefully someone from around there will be able to recommend a vet for you. Have you tried to put it back in yourself. I don't have experience with it but many here on EBN will be able to help. Good Luck!!!

    Hm I recommend removal but its a personal decision n it appears you've already made it!!! It's so weird hearing that a vet won't remove it!! I'm upstate ny n I told my vet I wanted Porkys removed n he actually agreed n said stitching wouldn't have worked in her particular case!!! Ill see if I can find any for u it's Porkys nap time so I am the pillow n rather bored lol!!

    thats very strange as i thought he procedure now was to remove it. there are videos on youtube to massage it back in. there is an article here about cherry eye also. maybe it will help. im sure someone will be along soon with experience.http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...ow-to-treat-it

    http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...endations.html Here is a post of vets all around the country that specialize in bulldogs and you could read through that and see if there is one in your area. I think most vets agree to remove cherry eye I have never heard of one that wouldn't! Keep us updated!

    If you need a good vet in Houston I can share the information with you.

    I had Otis's cherry eye's removed (both eyes) and have had no problems with dry eye etc....

    Hope you find someone, looks like Porkysmamma messaged you someone to call.

    I have to say I am so jealous, San Antonio....our family vacationed there last year and I can't wait to go back - absolutely loved it there.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    Hmm...seems like its an area thing.
    If massaging the cherry back in doesnt work or it does but it pops multiple times a day I would opt for removal.
    however if its a random pop that goes back in for a few weeks when massaged then racking might be a better option. The success rate on tacking depends on how stretched the ligament is that connects the 3rd lid. An over stretched ligament is more likely to result in the cherry eye popping again post surgery x

    My foster bully has cherry eye ...... this is the way I understand it.

    Back in ye olden days .... all vets just removed it, and then they discovered that they can actually tack it back into place. But as @Lucy-licious said in her post ... sometimes that doesn't work because of how stretched/bad the cherry eye is. Then the only way is to remove it.

    The disadvantage to removal is that later in life your bully could suffer from dry eye, but this is one of the more common ailments of a bully anyway so it could happen with or without removal.

    In our case, we tried the cherry eye tacking in both of Bella's eyes. One of them worked perfectly but the other one did not. The one that popped out again is quite large and she has probably had it her entire life. So this friday she will be going back in to get it removed.

    So my question to you is ... have you had the cherry eye looked at by your previous vet and did they say that it had to be removal??

    I have a question for u so when I give advice I am making sense lol our vet told us that porky had to much of the gland n he did what he called a partial removal he removed a good chunk of it but not the entire thing as to avoid issues in the future!!!! I would massage hers back in and an hour later it was out again but when her normal vet examined her she too said that stitching wouldn't hold because she had so much excess skin does that make sense??? Lol I want to make sure I'm not confusing ppl more!!!!!!!
