    Hi
    thanks for your comments

    I am 1 1/2 hours north of Toronto small town Collingwood; Ski and resort area.
    My strategy for now is to keep putting it back in and try to curb excitement much as possible (good luck) and maybe as he gets older the muscles around his eye will get stronger and stop popping out. He will be spayed before one year old and at that time I will decide on surgery and also see if other eye pops.
    I am looking for some eye drops anti inflammatory to reduce any swelling or prevent any infection. I am using liquid tears to lubricate at the moment

    regards
    Lou

    I was thinking exactly like you cause true just pop in it. But the excitement part..... like you said...good luck lol...at that age hard to refrain from playing. Basically them dogs, you want the to move as much as they can throughout their lifetime so they dont become lazy and build up joint issues. Well that's any pet and humans. You've got to move. So after pushing it back in often and her getting spayed I took advantage of a much lesser fee. Here's what to expect. This is in AB but im sure prices arent that far off for different vets. Aside from the anesthesia-electives $75 they charge per 10 mins $116 and that was for 30-60lb dogs. Cherry eye $140.50, spayed $192.50 + laser surgery $89.80. Eye drops $40.48. The rest was hers shots, micro chip total : $873.59 so you do save the anesthesia part.

    My French bulldog mix has a cherry eye that we can massage back into place too. We find that it comes out when he is chewing too long on a chew toy or if he has allergies. If he has allergies it won't go back in immediately. We give him one Zyrtec (he's 50 pounds) and wait about an hour or so for it to kick in and then it will go back in. From the redness I would guess that your girl might have allergies too.

    @CCandMurray my Frenchie mix is allergic to everything under the sun (had allergy tests done). When his allergies are acting up his eyes will get itchy + watery and he will rub them with his paws and on the ground to no end. Then the cherry eye will pop out and I guess because of all the allergy irritation it won't go back in until his allergy meds kick in.

    The cherry eye wasn't caused by his allergies, just to be clear. He had this even before his allergies became apparent.

    Murray's cherry eye (the left eye, his right that was operated on looks perfect with no issues) has been out for two days now I have tried to massage it back in but was not successful

    I know I'm going to call the vet on Monday to get a quote and make a plan for surgery

    It actually isn't a cherry eye until it gets infected. It's just a lacrimal gland popping out and it's much easier to get it back in if the eye is first lubricated. It may even go in without massaging. Just use a lot of eye drops, lift the chin and tilt the head backwards. But if it has been out for a couple of days, the chances are slim, but I would try. A lot of times this happens to a youg bulldog. If you can get it in and it doesn't get infected, when the dog matures and it's head gets to it's right size it usually stays in. I would not risk surgery if it's popping out occasionally, even daily if you can get it back in and it's normal pink, and not red.

    The vet has seen it so it must be. Some vets are also sometimes very keen on operating even when it's not necessary. Speedy recovery for your baby!
