    Default Pup isn't even home yet, and already has cherry eye

    I know this is a common problem, and can be fixed easily....she is only 8 weeks old right now. We are due to pick her up weekend after next.
    I have read that some people believe that cherry eye is a result of a parasite? (I'm not sure how true that is)
    The breeder says she will take $100 off for us having to treat it, but I"m worried about what happens in the mean time and if we should be concerned about overall health because of this?
    Gah! I"m so sad!!

    Awe that's a real bummer!!! No offense to your breeder, but $100 off is a rip off for a known issue. It will possibly be $500 for surgery when your baby is old enough to get it done, and all the ointments and vet visit costs before and after. It's also possible for it to go away completely but unlikely.

    No it's not a major issue but they can sometimes get infected and you will want to wait a little if possible to have the surgery done. If one has pooped out at this young of an age it's likely they both will.

    They can be caused by an eye injury (which is very possible in a rowdy litter of pups) but usually it's due to the strength of the third eyelid muscle.

    I have never heard of them being caused by a parasite.

    Check out the article on cherry eye too.

Size:  27.3 KB here is the pic she sent me. This is the first pic we have seen this close up of her in the past couple of weeks. We have tons of videos of the litter and her fat little body, etc. But nothing this close up in a while. Now (in typical fashion) I'm wondering if I am seeing things.....Does her eye look like it's been crusty with puss? Does that look like a tear stain already forming....etc..I think the $100 is a bad deal too, even without knowing exactly how much this will cost. I'm going to contact our vet tomorrow and see what she says and go from there. We are already so attached to this dog....don't want to over react, but also don't want to get taken.

    I can't blame you, I would certainly not give her up for it... she's precious!

    I cannot see the photo, it won't get bigger?

    If they are not willing to work with you futher than $100.... look at it from this perspective. If you would have brought her home and then the cherry eye happened, likely they would not even cover it all since it can be common in bullies. Certainly talk to your vet, I'm just going by pricing in my area. It could be much less where you live.

    Oh she is cute. But I totally agree with desertskybulldogs $100 off for a known health issue is not enough for the vet bills you will get to correct the eye. I would talk to the breeder's vet get an estimate from their vet and your vet for the surgery and then come to an agreement on the cost.

    Yes there is typically a discharge from the eye, especially if they are putting ointment in it. Gosh she is cute!!!!

    She is definitely a cutie! Is it rude to ask the breeder for an estimate from her own vet?

    I dont think so it just shows you are doing your best to take care of the health issue as soon as she is old enough. Most will wait to correct cherry eye with the neuter/ spay surgery.

    Thank you Ashleym. I have read that too. In order to only have anesthesia once, if I remember correctly.

    Yes that is correct. When we got Fergus he had an umbilical hernia which is common in puppies and we did not think twice. Our breeder did offer to pay for the surgery if it was needed at her vet (Dr. Butchko). The offer was put in writing in the contract. His hernia shrank so no surgery was needed. I would think a good breeder would offer to cover the cost for the repair.

    I would agree with what others have said. A reputable breeder would work with you to have it taken care of and not just give you $100 off as they most likely already know what the true cost would be and are trying to take advantage of you because they probably think you are uneducated about the breed which you definately are not.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
