    Default Inner eyelid problem!

    Hi, this is Lucky the little rescue puppy we got about 1 1/2 month ago. All the sudden his eye look like this. He's been doing so well and is such a happy pup, he shows no sign of it hurting. The stuff coming out of his eye is some cream I have that's for eye issues, thought it would help him a little.

    Is this cherry eye? I have no idea how he got it, he was fine in the morning and he was out playing and looked like this next time I saw him.

    That looks like cherry eye to me!!! Bella would get that, and we would gently rub her eyes to push it back in, I think on the home page they did a thread on this?!! Poor baby, I didn't realize that other breeds could get this… He is getting SO big, and cute!!! Does he get along w/the rest of the gang?!! I hope his eye gets better soon...

    http://www.englishbulldognews.com/co...ow-to-treat-it

    any breed can get it... it is just more common in bully breeds (pitties, boxers, mastiffs,etc)

    oh poor baby. Try to massage it back in. Brutus had this in both eyes. It can pop from rough play.

    Yep, like the others have said, it's cherry eye, you can try to rub it back in, but it will come back unfortunately. Cute pups too, and bless you for taking him in.

    Thank you all I kind of guessed it's cherry eye but I've never seen that before so I wasn't sure I looked at the videos and read the text, it explains very nice. I tried just now to massage it back in but it's hard he looses patience with me after a while too which makes it difficult. I'm leaving him for a while now... if I don't manage to get it in today can I leave it and try again tomorrow or is it to late to rub it back in place if it's been out for long? I think I might be to gentle... I'm so scared I'll make it worse
    @ddnene he's getting along very well with them all, he's such a good puppy The only thing is that he likes to put his little nose in everything, esp flowerpots, as you can see on his nose. It always has some kind of soil on it

    Hi, I agree with everyone's opinion that it's cherry eye. It looks the same as what my EB Blossom had, and she had cherry in in both eyes. She developed it in the left eye first at 5 months old, and we waited until she was spayed at 7 months old, and had both surgeries done at the same time, hoping to only have to put her under anesthetic once, but a week after her surgeries, she developed it in the other eye, and we had it surgically repaired a month later. While we were waiting for surgery, I was able to massage it back in sometimes, but it always came back out. I used over the counter Refresh eye drops from the drug store to keep her eye moist, and to keep it from drying out, because the longer the eye tissue is exposed to the air, can cause the eye to dry out and cause irritation or damage to the eye. The surgery went really well, and the vet did a great job, we are very happy with the results, you would never know she had anything done to her eyes. We opted to tack them in, have them sewn back in, but some people and vets take out the cherry eye gland. Ask lots of questions, and do your research, and consult with your vet to make your decision on which type of repair is best for you, and your pet. Here are some pictures of Blossom, the one on the bottom is when she had cherry eye, and the other two are after she had surgery, and her eye is repaired.

    @Petra, you can take a break and try massaging it back in again later. Finn gets this every so often and i know what you mean about them getting a little impatient when i can't massage it back in right away. I'll wait a little bit, then try again and sure enough, the eyelid pops back inside. I understand it is not painful for dogs to have this but the sooner you can get it remedied, the better.

    Thank you @Vikinggirl, I tried to massage it back in but I'm so scared I'll go to the vet in our town to ask for some eye drops tomorrow, I wont take him there cos it's clear to me they are only after money at that place. It's late here now but I'll read about it tomorrow and ask my hubby to phone our regular vet. I guess it's a pretty big risk he'll develop it in the other eye too eventually... I just wish I'd be able to get it back in place, I feel so useless. Is it hard the first time? I mean for me to get the hang of it?

    You will get the hang of it. If you can get him to be in a "down" position, and you get down on the floor as well and gently hold his head still while using your thumb to push it back in…It took me a few tries before i got it right the first time too.

    Hi, I googled cherry eye on the Internet when Blossom first got it, and there's a couple of good videos on there that show you how to do it. I also think there's one on the forum here on EBN, but it was easy to massage it back in, it just doesn't stay in most times. It will usually come back out after they run or play. How old is your guy? Blossom was 5 months old, when the first eye popped out, then we waited until she was 7 months old to have it repaired when she was spayed, a week later, her other eye popped out, so we had to do a second surgery. The second surgery ended up costing the same as the first surgery where she had two procedures done, because she had to be put under again, and more medications, IV fluids, etc. The recovery wasn't hard, she didn't seem to be in any pain, and we just had some antibiotic eye Creme to put in her eye everyday, and we followed up with the vet a week later. You don't need to go to the vet for prescription eye drops for the moisturizing drops, you can buy over the counter eye drops from the pharmacy. We used Refresh eye drops for Blossom, and they kept her eye moist. Most products that are safe for humans, are also safe for dogs. They are cheaper at the pharmacy, than what the vet sells them for, and they work the same.
