    i took my 8 month old bulldog to a vet ophthalmologist today and she will be having surgery to sew down the gland. her vet, a bulldog specialist doesn't do cherry eye surgery on bulldogs. she said they cannot be cut out and its going to cost between $1300 and $1500. thirty years ago my cocker spaniel had cherry eye and it was a couple of hundred dollars, but they cut them out back then. my vet said don't cut it out it can mess up the tear duct.

    hope your dog does okay.

    I'm taking Murray to the vet today for his consultation for the surgery, fingers crossed everything goes well and he'll have it done next week

I wish I could just massage it back in and although I haven't seen the vet yet she told me not to try doing that and I know nothing about it and am worried that something horrible would happen and I'd end up hurting Murray or making it worse. It seems like from what I've read most of you seem to recommend pinning so I will definitely talk to the vet about that tomorrow. my fear is that he'll have surgery and have chronic dry eye or something worse and I want to do whatever I can to avoid that. If anyone knows of a vet or specialist within like 3 hours or so of upstate New York please let me know! Also, I got a better picture of Murray's eye. Thanks everyone! Attachment 93342
    Goob was about 8 months old when he was playing with his little puppy friends and I saw this bulge in the corner of his eye. I FREAKED!. I was ready to go to the Emergency Vet, called my husband, and asked him to get home right away. He reminded me about the cherry eye issues (THAT I HAD RESEARCHED) and to try and massage it in. I told him I couldn't do it. I was too scared to try. Thankfully he encouraged me to at least try and so...I did. I slowly massaged and pressed downward on his eyelid and it went away. It has happened a handful of times in the last 4 years and each time, I massage it in and life goes on.

    I would encourage you to try. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If it massages in and pops out again, maybe it will be long enough to wait for his insurance to kick in again. Good luck...you never know if you never try.


    ****Sorry, got to this thread a little late...hope everything went well at the vet

    It went pretty well, he's going to have the surgery next Thursday when he gets neutered. I thought a lot about trying to massage it back in but my vet recommended against it which is probably for the best because I would worry that I would somehow end up hurting his eye or making it worse

    So tomorrow's the big day, in dropping Murray off at the vet and then going to work and leaving at 3 to pick him up, wish I could've taken the day off but my boss was already off so it got denied admittedly I am freaking out a bit worried because I won't be there when he wakes up and will he scared because it's not the vet office that we usually go to and the people there don't know us as well. I'm sure I'm probably overreacting a bit and will worry about it until I pick him up and see for myself that he's ok

    It is always a scary thing to leave them at the vet. I am sending many positive thoughts to Murray for his surgery tomorrow.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Thank you for the positive thoughts Murray and I really appreciate them I managed to keep it together while I was dropping him off this morning but lost it a little bit when I got back to the car. At work now, I'll feel better once they call between 1-2 to say everything went well and he's going to be fine! The girl who checked us in at the desk has a bully too so that made me feel a little better to know she'll be there with him today.
