    Default cherry eye and widen nostrils bulldog operations are on the cards

    Hi guys , just came back with Lily from the vets as she developed cherry eye 2 days ago - we got some eye drops ,and in vew weeks she will have a small "tuck in" op for her cherry eye vet also noticed that her breathing is heavy when sitting and doing nothing and suggested that she could benefit with widening nostrils op-have any of you bulldogs had it done? (i wondering if nose scar will be visible )
    Many thanks

    Lola had her nostrils widened about a month ago, along with an elongated palate correction. the absorbable stitches are still there, but there are no scars, all is healing to black nose. all of it helped Lola. good luck with your surgeries!

    I have experience with two bullies having the nosrils widened.... no issues at all, and it was a great help to their breathing

    Good Luck wit her surgeries. We opted for removal of Billys cherry eyes as they were so bad. but Iknow of people who have had a lot of success with the tucks.

    Otis had both eyes - glands removed and no problems. Our vet would not do the tuck method at all and I didn't want to go that route anyway. Best of luck to you

    Buster had cherry eye tucks in both eyes a few weeks ago and they healed beautifully. He will have his nares lasered when he gets neutered. Good luck. Nostril and palate surgeries for Bullies can make such a difference to their breathing if recommended by a knowledgeable experienced Bully vet.
